A sweeping artificial intelligence (AI) agreement announced Jan. 27 by the U.S. and EU aims to improve agriculture, healthcare, emergency response, climate forecasting, and the electric grid by speeding up and enhancing use of the technology.

The first-of-its-kind agreement aims to provide access to more detailed and data-rich AI models to boost the speed and efficiency of government operations and services.

Said a senior U.S. administration official, "The magic here is in building joint models (while) leaving data where it is. The U.S. data stays in the U.S. and European data stays there, but we can build a model that talks to the European and the U.S. data because the more data and the more diverse data, the better the model."

The partnership between the White House and the European Commission potentially could be expanded to other countries in the near future.
