Presidential Administration of Donald Trump plans to submit to Congress its request to double the budget for artificial intelligence and quantum research. It is reported by Reuters, citing its own sources.
In particular, Trump wants to increase spending on the study of artificial intelligence from $ 973 million to almost $ 2 billion by 2022. For quantum research, he proposes to increase spending to $ 860 million over two years.
Michael Kratsios, a White House adviser and U.S. chief technology officer, declined to confirm the figures but said in a statement that the budget will “ensure America continues to lead the world in critical technologies like AI and quantum. America’s economic strength and national security depend on it.”

The White House is also focused on boosting quantum information research as part of its effort to support future industries. Still, in its infancy, quantum computing aims to operate millions of times faster than today’s advanced supercomputers using quantum mechanics.
The figures do not include some Defense Department research programs. Officials say the jump is aimed at keeping pace with China’s efforts. The budget proposal on Monday will include a 70% increase for National Science Foundation (NSF) for AI-related grants and interdisciplinary research institutes, rising to more than $850 million, sources said, as well as a significant jump in funding at NSF for quantum information sciences.
