National AI Strategy focused on security

On Artificial Intelligence: We need a National AI Strategy focused on employment, security, and ethics. The U.S. must create a whole of government strategy that will provide the tools and skills necessary for the country to win the international AI race. For that to occur, the U.S. must:

Bipartisanship on infrastructure, digital privacy, and more

The former technology executive did what he had to make his pitch for moderation and accord. "I don't think bipartisanship is a dirty word," he said.

He ticked off six possible areas of common ground he thinks both parties could find if he's president--a carbon tax; infrastructure spending; criminal justice reform; immigration reform; digital privacy and a new national service programme. You have to admit, he's an optimist.

National strategy for artificial intelligence & automation

By 2030, 50 million jobs in our country could be displaced or fundamentally changed because of artificial intelligence and automation. I've called for a national artificial intelligence strategy. Our national AI strategy should focus on work, it should focus on national security. It should focus on privacy. And it should focus on programming bias, meaning the machines that are going to make all the decisions that human beings have historically made. We've had a hard time getting the bias out of our human-based society. I worry it's going to be programmed into all the machines.

Delaney co-sponsored TIGER Grants Act

Congressional Summary: TIGER Grants for Job Creation Act: Congress finds the following:

  1. The economy is struggling to recover from the recession. The unemployment rate is nearly 8%.
  2. The American Society of Civil Engineers' 2009 Report Card for America's Infrastructure estimated that there is a $549 billion shortfall in investments in roads and bridges and an additional $190 billion shortfall in investments in transit.
  3. TIGER, formally known as the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant program, is a nationwide competitive grant program that creates jobs by funding investments in transportation infrastructure.
An additional amount for National Infrastructure Investments of $1 billion shall become available, and shall be exempt from any sequestration.

Opponent's argument against bill:(The Reason Foundation, July 6, 2012):

The US Constitution authorizes Congress "to regulate Commerce...among the several States." However, the five non-motorized transportation projects, the six transit projects and the six multimodal projects TIGER Grants have funded serve no national need. Some of the port, passenger rai
