Following the Money
The global AI industry is booming, with privately held firms pulling in nearly $40 billion in disclosed investment in 2019 alone. U.S. companies continue to attract the majority of that funding—64 percent of it in 2019—but America’s lead is not guaranteed. And unlike previous technological developments, most AI activity is occurring outside the government. Policymakers will need to understand private-sector investment trends in order to ensure U.S. economic competitiveness and national security in the age of AI.

In their recent report, CSET Research Fellow Zachary Arnold and colleagues explain where commercial AI activity takes place today, who funds it and carries it out, which real-world problems AI companies are trying to solve, and how these facets are changing over time. On December 8, he’ll join Dr. Sarah Sewall, Executive Vice President for Policy at In-Q-Tel, for a discussion of the report’s findings and what they mean for AI policy in the United States.
