They include: invest in research and development; apply the technology to national security missions; train and recruit AI talent; protect and build on U.S. technology advantages; and marshal global cooperation on artificial intelligence issues.

The five guiding principles outlined in the report will steer the commission as it moves toward its next analytical phase where it will come up with its final recommendations. The group's final report is due to be released in March 2021.
