White House Launches AI.gov

All the federal government’s initiatives and resources around artificial intelligence can now be accessed on one dedicated website, AI.gov, which the White House launched today.

“It’s a real hub for all the AI projects being done across the agencies,” Michael Kratsios, the U.S. deputy chief technology officer within the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, told attendees of The Economist’s artificial intelligence event in Washington. “It really speaks to and highlights the whole government approach we’re taking to ensure American leadership in this work.”

The site features AI-focused policy initiatives and accomplishments across the federal government and also brings together governmentwide resources such as fact sheets, strategic documents, agency programs and more.

“You can really see the depth and the breath of all the work being done, from the Transportation Department to [the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] to [the National Science Foundation] and across the federal government,” Kratsios said.

The launch is part of a broader effort under the American AI Initiative, which aims to accelerate America’s leadership in AI and was instituted by an executive order President Trump signed in February. Following the announcement of the new site, Kratsios further highlighted some of the administration’s priorities around AI.
