The tech hubs are in cities from Baltimore, Maryland, to Birmingham, Alabama, and beyond, with a focus on semiconductors, biotechnology, artificial intelligence and quantum computing.
Sen. Thune is “determined” to have his artificial intelligence legislation “be a bipartisan product,” Senate source says, with plans to introduce the bill “sooner rather than later.”
The Tech Hubs program, which was enacted as part of the CHIPS Act, seeks to build and support new R&D capacity across the U.S.
Trustworthy AI, R&D, the workforce, U.S. competitiveness, and international cooperation are the five initial focus areas.
The committee, established in September, will make recommendations on U.S. global competitiveness and the National AI Initiative.
