In the latest issue of AI Outlook − a new DLA Piper publication that reports on the latest developments around artificial intelligence in Washington − we discuss the fiscal year 2021 federal budget proposal unveiled by the White House this week, which would provide increased strategic investment for R&D in artificial intelligence and quantum computing.
