Today, Congressman Jake Auchincloss, (D, MA-04), Congressman Anthony Gonzalez (R, OH-16), Congresswoman Grace Meng (D, NY-06), Congressman Dean Phillips (D, MN-03), and Congressman Mike Waltz (R, FL-06) introduced legislation to create a U.S.-Israel Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research and Development Center to further bilateral cooperation in AI and contribute to the advancement of this critical field. The bill directs the U.S. Secretary of State, in consultation with the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and the heads of other relevant U.S. agencies, to establish a joint U.S.-Israel AI Center in the United States. The Center will serve as a hub for robust research and development in AI across the public, private and education sectors in the two nations.

“As the United States pivots away from the failed forever wars, we must recommit ourselves to strong alliances with friends and be prepared to compete with the emerging threat of the CCP,” said Congressman Auchincloss.“Partnering with Israel and developing an Artificial Intelligence Research Center will help our generation lead in R&D globally. By investing in the technologies of the future with our allied partners, we can build an economy that prepares us to tackle the challenges of the next generation.”

About

Jake Auchincloss 2

Source: Government page

Jake was born and raised in Massachusetts, the son of a surgeon and scientist. They taught him the values of curiosity, integrity, and service. He grew up in the Jewish faith tradition and attended the Newton Public Schools. His 2nd-grade teacher saw he loved to read and gave him books on United States history. He was hooked.

Jake has gotten results in the military, business, and local government
After graduating from Harvard College, Jake joined the Marines. He commanded infantry in Afghanistan and special operations in Panama. He’s now a major in the reserves.

In Afghanistan in 2012, Jake led patrols through villages contested by the Taliban. He saw firsthand the futility of the Forever Wars, and in Congress, he’ll help end them. Jake then joined the Marines’ elite reconnaissance branch. In Panama in 2014, his reconnaissance team trained local units to stop the drug trade. Dusting off his college Spanish, Jake worked with Panamanian and Colombian allies to lead a successful mission.

While stationed in the Canal Zone, Jake wrote for Harvard about urban planning in Panama City. When he returned home to Newton, Jake wanted to continue working at the local level. He won election to the Newton City Council in 2015, was re-elected in 2017, and topped the ticket in 2019. He resigned in 2020 after election to Congress.

Jake’s favorite part of being a city councilor was constituent services and communication. He chaired the transportation & public safety committee and was a member of the land use committee. His work at the intersections of (a) housing & racial justice, and (b) transportation & the environment earned him endorsements from Progressive Newton and environmental advocates. Jake was the first city councilor to endorse Ruthanne Fuller, the first woman to be Mayor of Newton.

Jake also worked on housing and transportation at Liberty Mutual’s innovation lab. His favorite project? Kickstarting development of insurance for cyclists and e-scooters. Before Liberty Mutual, Jake worked in cybersecurity and led the startup competition at MIT, where he has an MBA in Finance.

Jake lives in Newtonville with his wife, Michelle; their son, Teddy; and their Labrador Retriever, Donut. In his free time, he still loves to read American history.

Wikipedia Entry

Jacob Daniel Auchincloss (/ˈɔːkɪnklɒs/ AWK-in-kloss; born January 29, 1988)[1] is an American politician, businessman, and Marine veteran serving as the U.S. representative for Massachusetts’s 4th congressional district since 2021. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

Early life and education

Jacob Daniel Auchincloss was born in Newton, Massachusetts, to Laurie Glimcher and Hugh Auchincloss. Both of his parents are physician-scientists;[2] his mother is President and CEO of Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and his father serves as Deputy Director to Anthony Fauci at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Auchincloss’s grandfather is the first cousin once-removed of stockbroker Hugh D. Auchincloss.[3] His stepfather, Gregory Petsko, is a biochemist and biotech entrepreneur who has become a global expert on Alzheimer’s disease.[4] Auchincloss is Jewish, having been raised in his mother’s faith.[5][6]

Auchincloss’s grandfather Melvin J. Glimcher pioneered the development of artificial limbs and was inducted into the National Academy of Sciences.[7][8][9]

Auchincloss was raised in Newton with his two siblings and attended Newton North High School.[10] He studied government and economics at Harvard College, graduating with honors, and earned an MBA in finance from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[11][12]

Career

Military service

After graduating from Harvard University, Auchincloss joined the United States Marine Corps, earning his commission through Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia. He commanded infantry in Helmand Province in 2012, and a reconnaissance unit in Panama in 2014. In Helmand, he led combat patrols through villages contested by the Taliban. In Panama, his team of elite reconnaissance Marines partnered with Colombian special operations to train the Panamanian Public Forces in drug-interdiction tactics.[13]

Auchincloss completed both infantry training in Quantico and the Marine Corps’s reconnaissance training in California, profiled in Nate Fick’s One Bullet Away. He graduated from the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) school in Maine and was an honor graduate from the Basic Airborne Course in Georgia. He continued to serve in the Individual Ready Reserve after leaving active duty and was promoted to major on September 1, 2020.[14]

Local government

After returning home from the military, Auchincloss ran for Newton City Council on a platform of full-day kindergarten and expanded pre-K offerings.[15] He was elected in 2015, defeating the incumbent councilor.[16] He was reelected to the Newton City Council in 2017 and 2019.[17][18] He chaired the Transportation and Public Safety Committee.[19] In office, he supported progressive immigration and housing policies, sustainable transportation and co-docketed the successful Sanctuary city ordinance.[20][21]

When the Newton City Council debated a pay raise for elected officials, Auchincloss voted no because Newton teachers were, at the time, teaching without a contract.[22]

Auchincloss was the first elected official to endorse Ruthanne Fuller for mayor.[23]

Business

While serving on the Newton City Council and attending MIT, Auchincloss was the director of the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition.[24] He also worked at a cybersecurity startup as a product manager and at Liberty Mutual as a senior manager at its innovation arm, Solaria Labs.[21]

U.S. House of Representatives

Elections

2020

On October 2, 2019, Auchincloss announced his candidacy for the open Massachusetts’s 4th congressional district to succeed Joe Kennedy III, who unsuccessfully ran for the Senate against incumbent Democrat Ed Markey.[25]

Auchincloss raised the most money during the primary election in both the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020 and earned endorsements from the National Association of Government Employees, VoteVets, The Boston Globe and James E. Timilty.[26][27][28][29] He earned the support of several Newton politicians, including the president and vice president of the city council and the chair and vice chair of the school committee.[30] He earned additional endorsements throughout the district, including from State Representative Paul Schmid of Fall River.[31]

During the campaign, questions arose about his party affiliation. Auchincloss was originally a Democrat, but was a registered Republican from 2013 to 2014 while working for Charlie Baker’s gubernatorial campaign. He continued to vote in Republican primaries as an independent until late 2015 before becoming a Democrat again.[32]

The Democratic primary occurred on September 1, 2020.[33] In a race with eight other candidates, Auchincloss won with 22.4% of the vote. It took the Associated Press three days to call the race because nearly one million votes were cast through mail-in ballots due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[34]

In the November general election, Auchincloss defeated Republican nominee Julie Hall. He assumed office on January 3, 2021.[35]

Tenure

On January 6, 2021, after the 2021 attack on the United States Capitol, Auchincloss tweeted his agreement with lawmakers’ calls to remove President Donald Trump from office, either through the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution or impeachment. Auchincloss voted to certify the results of the 2020 United States presidential election in the early morning of January 7, 2021. On January 21, he voted to approve the congressional waiver for General Lloyd Austin, President Joe Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Defense.
