PITTSBURGH — President Obama is announcing a $500 million project to spur high-technology manufacturing to help reposition the United States as a leader in the sector.

The initiative will serve as another attempt by the president to promote job-creation during the country’s current economic downturn.

The Huffington Post Reports:

Obama will be touring the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, which is building machines that can help with bomb disposal, brain surgery, lawn mowing and paint scraping. Ultimately, some scientists at the institute are trying to figure out whether robots and humans can “treat each other as equal partners or teammates.”

The administration’s plan includes $70 million for a robotics initiative. It also is aiming $300 million toward national security industries and $100 million for research and training to more quickly develop advanced materials at lower costs. Some of the $500 million would come from existing allocations to government agencies, but other money is only reflected in Obama’s 2012 budget request and would require approval by Congress.
