The Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources recently held a hearing titled, “Recent Advances in Artificial Intelligence and The Department of Energy’s Role in Ensuring U.S. Competitiveness and Security in Emerging Technologies.” Hearing testimony focused on artificial intelligence (AI) work across six national labs, the $1.8 billion Exa-scale Computing Program authorized by Congress, and broader issues related to ethical uses of AI and international competition.
Witnesses presented an overview of DOE research and current applications of AI. Those applications include disease diagnosis, clean energy deployment, emergency response, national security, and many other areas that have the potential to unlock transformational changes in our economy and society. The hearing featured testimony from David M. Turk (Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Energy), Dr. Rick L. Stevens (Associate Laboratory Director Computing, Environment and Life Science, Argonne National Laboratory), Ms. Anna B.
