"The most challenging problems AI may help us solve--from fighting terrorists to serving vulnerable populations--will involve government," according to "The Future Has Begun," a report on the impact of AI on government by the Partnership for Public Service and the IBM Center for the Business of Government. "More immediately, though not less consequentially, AI will change the way public servants do their jobs." A decade-long collaboration between the University of Southern California and Los Angeles International Airport produced an AI-enabled system aimed at helping law-enforcement units deploy their limited staff more effectively. After analyzing potential targets, the system recommends randomized police patrol routes and schedules so terrorists can't anticipate where and when they will run into security checkpoints. The system has since been used by the U.S. Coast Guard to randomize boat patrol routes in major ports and by the Transportation Security Administration to assign air marshals to flights.
