As policymaker attention toward global competition in emerging technologies grows, CSET has compiled the following one-pagers with recommendations for addressing critical issues affecting U.S. and overseas development of artificial intelligence. They are intended to be considered now and put into practice by the next presidential administration.
Continued leadership in artificial intelligence will require an alliance-centered strategy, targeted export controls and support for the U.S. research community that attracts global talent while defending against security threats.
CSET’s one-pagers provide background and recommendations on five important areas policymakers should address in order to advance U.S. interests in artificial intelligence and emerging technology, including:
- Imposing export controls on semiconductor manufacturing equipment and end-use controls on AI chips in concert with key democratic allies;
- Maintaining the United States’ tech talent advantage by preserving the Optional Practical Training program;
- Convening and supporting a public-private institution to inform and support research security efforts in America’s R&D ecosystem;
- Prioritizing open source intelligence collection by establishing a dedicated national S&T analysis center; and
- Collaborating with allies to pool technological resources, defend against digital authoritarianism and advocate for inclusive growth, human rights and democratic values.
