Summary of GAO Forum on Artificial Intelligence

To gain a better understanding of the emerging opportunities, challenges, and implications resulting from developments in AI, the Comptroller General of the United States convened a Forum on Artificial Intelligence, which was held on July 6 and 7, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

Participants from industry, government, academia, and nonprofit organizations considered the potential implications of AI developments in four sectors–cybersecurity, automated vehicles, criminal justice, and financial services. Participants considered policy implications of broadening AI use in the economy and society, as well as associated opportunities, challenges, and areas in need of more research. Following the forum, participants were given the opportunity to review a summary of forum discussions and a draft of this report. Additionally, a draft of the report was reviewed independently by two experts who did not attend the forum.
