More on Artificial Intelligence
(Washington, DC) – House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Ranking Member Frank Lucas (R-OK) praised the inclusion of a National Artificial Intelligence Initiative in the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which was passed by the House of Representatives today.
As we fight to keep America safe, healthy, and economically stable during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is one certainty: our success depends on science. When faced with a challenge, America’s scientists and engineers have always answered the call and the current crisis is no different. When COVID-19 reached the U.S., they immediately pivoted to apply their knowledge and resources to fight this virus.
Today, Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) and Ranking Member Frank Lucas (R-OK) together with Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-CA), Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), and Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) introduced H.R.
This legislation accelerates and coordinates Federal investments and facilitates new public-private partnerships in research, standards, and education in artificial intelligence, in order to ensure the United States leads the world in the development and use of responsible artificial intelligence systems.
Good morning Chairwoman Stevens. Thank you for convening today’s hearing to examine the major research activities being supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in order to inform this Committee’s reauthorization of the Institute.
I would also like to thank Director Copan for being here this morning. I am looking forward to hearing your testimony.
Representative Jim Baird (R-IN) along with his colleagues Reps. Bill Foster (D-IL), Frank Lucas (R-OK), and Haley Stevens (D- MI) introduced H.R. 6145, the Industries of the Future Act.

Good morning and thank you Chairwoman Johnson for holding this important hearing as we deal with an emerging and rapidly evolving situation with the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), at this time most people in the United States have little immediate risk of exposure to the virus. However, public health experts also advise us a pandemic is likely, so we must gather the facts and be prepared.
This bill requires the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to report to Congress on research and development investments, infrastructure, and workforce development investments of the federal government that enable continued U.S. leadership in industries of the future.
