Final Report: National Security Commission on AI

The (U.S.) National Security Commission on AI recently published its final report.



In August 2018, Section 1051 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 established the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence as an independent Commission “to consider the methods and means necessary to advance the development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and associated technologies to comprehensively address the national security and defense needs of the United States.”  There are 15 commissioners participating, including Dr. Eric Schmidt, Dr Safra Catz (Oracle), Dr Steve Chien (Jet Propulsion Lab) and others.

The Final Report presents the NSCAI’s strategy for winning the artificial intelligence era. The 16 chapters explain the steps the United States must take to responsibly use AI for national security and defense, defend against AI threats, and promote AI innovation. The accompanying Blueprints for Action provide detailed plans for the U.S. Government to implement the recommendations.
