The General Services Administration and federal chief information officer are leading a newly launched governmentwide committee to support the use of artificial intelligence across government agencies.
The AI Community of Practice aims to harness and apply technological advancements throughout government as appropriate and in collaboration with leaders from the private sector, academia, the public and international partners.
The group will support and coordinate the use of AI in areas such as machine learning and deep learning, robotic process automation, human-computer interactions, natural language processing, rule-based automation and robotics across federal agencies.
The work of the CoP includes bringing together federal employees active or interested in AI policy technology, standards and programs to better share best practices, success stories and other information. The effort aligns with President Donald Trump’s executive order on maintaining U.S. leadership in AI, signed in February.
U.S. CIO Suzette Kent and Anil Cheriyan, director of GSA’s Technology Transformation Services, are the executive sponsors for the AI CoP. The Technology Transformation Services Solutions division will administer the CoP under the leadership of Steven Babitch of the AI portfolio who coordinates with the CIO Council’s Innovation Committee.
Interested federal government employees can join through the AI listserve with their .gov or .mil email address.
