From September 6 to 16 the FPC brought 12 foreign journalists representing different countries and global regions to the U.S. for an international reporting tour (IRT) focused on AI and technology. In Washington, DC, the group was briefed by the National Security Council, R, S/Tech, and NASA, as well as industry leaders, and members of Congress. They also toured the NASA Earth Information Center with climate data displays from NASA satellites in real time. Prior to their program in DC, the group traveled to Boston and Detroit, and met with leading academics from the University of Michigan, Tufts University, and learned about leading AI and tech companies such as Autodesk, Our Next Energy (ONE), and Waymo (a leader in driverless cars). They also explored lab incubator spaces and attended the Battery Show and Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo. The reporters have produced dozens of stories focused on tech innovation in the United States, the need for thoughtful regulation on AI, and the danger tech advances can pose to international security.
