TheNational Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act of 2020calls for the establishment ofthe NAIAC.Committee members will have the unique opportunity to advise and make recommendations to the President and theNational Artificial Intelligence Initiative Officeon matters such as the state of U.S. competitiveness and leadership in AI, as well as opportunities for international cooperation with strategic allies on globally important AI issues. Accordingly, the call for nominations seeks expert leaders from a broad range of AI-relevant disciplines from across academia, industry, non-profits and civil society, and federal laboratories, including those from underrepresented communities.
