Technology company CEOs have issued 35 recommendations to Congress for maintaining global supremacy in artificial intelligence through the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) .

The recommendations include establishing a National Reserve Digital Corps modeled on military reserve corps, enabling machine learning practitioners to contribute to government projects on a part-time basis.

NSCAI also urged the founding of an accredited U.S. Digital Services Academy, whose graduates would commit to five years of civil service.

Other recommendations include training State Department workers in emerging technologies like AI that "define global engagement strategies," and encouraging the Defense Department to adopt AI systems for robotic process automation and similar applications.
