"By driving technological breakthroughs in AI, breaking barriers to innovation, preparing our workforce for the jobs of the future, and protecting American advantage in AI, we're ensuring artificial intelligence technologies continue to improve the lives of our people, create jobs, reflect our nation's values and keep Americans safe at home and overseas", the official said.
This initiative, which will elevate federal funding for AI research and support USA -led AI worldwide standards, doesn't contain new AI development funding or additional details on next steps, The Verge reported.
Instead, the White House hopes to provide leadership for private industry to take the initiative in developing artificial intelligence.
Ivanka Trump and Chris Liddell, a former Microsoft chief financial officer who is now a deputy chief of staff to the president, planned to attend the signing ceremony, according to a statement the White House issued in advance.
It also says federal agencies will establish guidance to ensure the new technologies are developed in a safe, trustworthy way.

Engage internationally: It will call for a strategy for global collaboration that ensures AI is developed in a way that is consistent with American "values and interests".
US efforts to jump-start its AI R&D have stumbled, with the US Department of Defense being reluctant to totally overhaul its legacy systems and US corporations like Google getting cold feet about helping the US state develop weapons of war that make use of artificial intelligence.
Vivek Wadhwa, distinguished fellow at Carnegie Mellon University, discusses how the expansion of artificial intelligence may affect USA employment.
Dubbed the American AI Initiative, the administration will direct agencies to prioritise AI investments in research and development, increase access to federal data and models for that research and prepare workers to adapt to the era of AI. That includes high school, undergraduate and graduate fellowships, alternative education and training programs and other scholarships.
