Unlocking AI’s potential in North America


The United States is at a pivotal moment in the development of AI. We’re already seeing the progress it is making possible – sparking scientific breakthroughs, helping governments serve people better, and empowering workers and businesses around the country.

At Google, we’re excited about the opportunities AI will create for people and businesses of all sizes, but we know unlocking AI’s economic potential in the United States won’t happen automatically. Across the country, industries, government, and society need to continue to work together to deploy a deliberate strategy that ensures everyone can fully benefit from the opportunities of AI.

We can realize the transformative power of AI by adopting an enabling policy agenda that:

  1. Invests in AI infrastructure and innovation
  2. Develops a thoughtful AI workforce strategy
  3. Promotes widespread AI adoption

Since our founding, Google’s mission has been to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. AI can help us deliver on that mission in ways that once seemed impossible, and we’re committed to working with government, industry and civil society to build an AI-supported future that works for everyone.

Advancing AI Opportunity across North America

Through our AI Opportunity Agenda initiative, we have identified a three-part enabling agenda that supports the effective deployment of AI in the public and private sector, ensuring it benefits and is useful to as broad a range of people as possible. Google is committed to advancing the goals of the enabling agenda in partnership with government and industry.


What should be our priorities to advance AI Infrastructure and Innovation What should be our priorities to advance AI Infrastructure and Innovation

We must support R&D, compute capacity, and legal frameworks that enable responsible AI growth.

  • Continue to drive public and private-sector investment in R&D and AI infrastructure so that researchers, technologists, and businesses can access the tools needed to build and deploy AI, including by strengthening the National AI Research Resource (NAIRR) and passing the bipartisan CREATE Act. 
  • Maintain a pro-innovation legal framework that spurs dynamism across the entire ecosystem, including privacy and copyright frameworks that enable use of publicly available information while respecting legitimate rights.
  • Promote responsible development of AI with key foreign partners, including through an AI Opportunity Alliance and support for digital trade and investment policies that enable cross-border data flows essential to the development of AI.

How can we best support the workforce in the AI-enabled era? How can we best support the workforce in the AI-enabled era?

We need to work together to develop a thoughtful AI workforce strategy – investing in education and skilling programs and building AI talent. This could include:

  • Launching an American AI Corps that advances a shared commitment between AI developers, traditional industries, labor and workforce experts, and policymakers to prepare students and workers for the AI-supported era. The AI Corps should build domestic AI talent and modernize workforce and education programs to help people across all communities harness AI in dynamic environments. 
  • Tailoring new AI skilling efforts to meet local workforce needs and explore partnerships between community colleges and AI developers to launch AI workforce clinics. Like the cybersecurity clinic model, AI clinics would create on-the-job training programs and give students hands-on learning experience. Policymakers could drive further impact by creating regional 'AI hubs' that match clinics and skilling programs to the needs of priority local industries and small businesses.

What can policymakers do to promote the widespread deployment of AI What can policymakers do to promote the widespread deployment of AI

We need to ensure that AI is applied and deployed in a universally accessible and useful way. Policymakers can help by:

  • Developing an AI Opportunity Strategy across all levels of government  to spur AI adoption throughout the economy. 
  • Promoting private sector and policymaker collaboration to identify industries that have the highest need and lowest uptake of AI tools, and develop sector-specific AI deployment initiatives.
