Artificial Intelligence: Emerging Opportunities, Challenges, and Implications for Policy and Research, Testimony Before the Subcommittees on Research and Technology and Energy, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, House of Representatives (June 26, 2018) (full-text).
From the Statement of Timothy M. Persons, Chief Scientist Applied Research and Methods:
"Thank you for the opportunity to discuss our work on artificial intelligence (AI). My testimony today summarizes our March 2018 technology assessment entitled "Artificial Intelligence: Emerging Opportunities, Challenges, and Implications." According to experts, AI holds substantial promise for not only improving human life and economic competitiveness in a variety of capacities, but also helping to solve some of society's most pressing challenges. At the same time, AI poses new risks and has the potential to displace workers in some sectors, requires new skills and adaptability to changing workforce needs, and could exacerbate socioeconomic inequality."
