As the post-pandemic economic era nears, much
of the U.S. artificial intelligence (AI) discussion
revolves around futuristic dreams of both utopia
and dystopia, with promises ranging from solutions
to global climate change on the positive side to a
“robot apocalypse” on the negative. However, it bears
remembering that AI is also becoming a real-world
economic fact, with major implications for national and
regional economic development.
Based on advanced uses of statistics, algorithms,
and fast computer processing, AI has become a focal
point of U.S. innovation debates. Even more, AI is
increasingly viewed as one of the next great “general
purpose technologies”—one that has the power to
transform sector after sector of the entire economy.
