Why It's Important

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that holds promise for tremendous societal and economic benefit. AI has the potential to revolutionize how we live, work, learn, discover, and communicate. AI research can further our national priorities, including increased economic prosperity, improved educational opportunities and quality of life, and security.

The increased prominence of AI approaches over the past 25 years has been boosted in large part by the adoption of statistical and probabilistic methods, the availability of large amounts of data, and increased computer processing power. Over the past decade, the AI subfield of machine learning, which enables computers to learn from experience or examples, has demonstrated increasingly accurate results, causing much excitement about the near-term prospects of AI. While recent attention has been paid to the importance of statistical approaches such as deep learning, impactful AI advances have also been made in a wide variety of other areas, such as perception, natural language processing, formal logics, knowledge representations, robotics, control theory, cognitive system architectures, search and optimization techniques, and many others.

New products and services can create new markets, and improve the quality and efficiency of existing goods and services across multiple industries. More efficient logistics and supply chains are being created through expert decision systems. Products can be transported more effectively through vision-based driver-assist and automated/robotic systems. Manufacturing can be improved through new methods for controlling fabrication processes and scheduling work flows.
