Artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum information science (QIS) are key industries of the future that will power economic growth and strengthen national security for years to come. The Trump Administration recognizes the strategic importance of these emerging technologies and has taken decisive action to advance America’s AI and QIS leadership.
In February 2020, President Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Budget put the United States on a path to double Federal research and development (R&D) spending in nondefense AI and QIS by FY2022.
This report provides a summary of Federal R&D spending in nondefense artificial intelligence and quantum information science for Fiscal Years 2020 – 2021. It demonstrates that the Administration is well on its way to fulfilling the President’s request to double investment.
