VA's Artificial Intelligence Director Details AI Institute's Early Efforts

#artificialintelligence

The Veterans Affairs Department's nascent National Artificial Intelligence Institute is focusing on hammering out policies and streamlining its processes so it can share data with partners in a speedy way. After its initial launch late last year, the agency's inaugural artificial intelligence director and lead of the center Dr. Gil Alterovitz shared few details with Nextgov about its ultimate aims, but at an event in Washington Wednesday, he expanded on the center's early intentions and efforts. "We are at that time in history where human intelligence at some point will intersect with artificial intelligence," Alterovitz said at the ACT-IAC's second intelligent automation and AI forum. "And so it's a really special time for us to learn about it." The AI director said the intersection between human intelligence and specific areas where computational artificial intelligence will meet is inching closer to reality by the day.


ACT-IAC Releases New Artificial Intelligence Playbook

#artificialintelligence

The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), the premier public-private partnership dedicated to advancing government through the application of information technology, today officially announced the release of the "Artificial Intelligence (AI) Playbook for the U.S. Federal Government." It was produced through a collaborative, volunteer effort by a working group of 133 leaders from government and industry plus academia and associations, hosted by the ACT-IAC Emerging Technology Community of Interest (COI). "The AI Playbook is designed to help the United States Federal Government achieve successful outcomes and reduce risk in its understanding and application of AI technologies," said David Wennergren, CEO of ACT-IAC, "and this important work directly supports the President's Management Agenda (PMA), Cross Agency Priority (CAP) Goal 6 - Shifting from Low-Value to High-Value Work." The Playbook also follows the General Service Administration's Office of Government-wide Policy Modernization and Migration Management (M3) framework used for Shared Services. AI has the power to accelerate government services in fields as diverse as medical research and disaster recovery to help save lives and improve quality of service in impactful ways.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is of great strategic importance to the United States. We are recognized as the current leader in the space, and as such, are investing in capabilities and opportunities to ensure we are progressing AI forward across the country. AI is instrumental in providing the country with a competitive advantage. If we're not raising the bar in the United States, other countries will become more adept leaders in the space. AI is a top priority at the federal level right now.
