SIIA’s Endorsement of the CREATE AI Act for Advancing Artificial Intelligence Research & Development

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) expresses support for H.R. 5077, the CREATE AI Act of 2023, in a letter to the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. SIIA applauds the U.S. government’s efforts in AI innovation. The CREATE AI Act aims to establish the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR), building essential AI infrastructure to maintain U.S. leadership. The NAIRR addresses challenges such as the high cost of AI model development, providing expanded access to computational resources and data sets. This democratizes AI development, fostering innovation among startups and smaller developers. Moreover, the NAIRR supports federal R&D for AI innovation, standards, and applications, ensuring alignment with American values of democracy and transparency. The CREATE AI Act serves as Congressional direction to the Executive Branch on AI priorities, emphasizing the role of Congress in allocating resources for U.S. competitiveness in AI. SIIA appreciates the Committee’s attention to these critical issues and offers further discussion if needed.
