GovLoop AI Guide cover

Government agencies have been discussing artificial intelligence (AI) for more than a decade, and as technology and legislation progress, the focus on public sector impacts is stronger than ever. One exciting area of study is machine learning (ML), which is defined as computers changing and improving their algorithms autonomously as they receive more inputs. Agencies at all levels of government are researching and adopting AI and ML in an effort to cement the United States as a world leader in a technology that will help define the coming decades.

A 2019 executive order highlights American leadership in AI as key to maintaining the economic and national security of the United States. The Trump administration has also issued regulatory guidance on AI, instructing all federal agencies to prioritize and allocate funding for AI programs that serve their individual missions. Numerous national agencies and even multinational partnerships have identified AI as a priority — AI’s similarity to human intelligence means it could potentially impact every corner of society, from cybersecurity to medicine.

AI could improve efficiency, perform dull tasks, assist with decision making and enable scores of other promising technologies, such as autonomous vehicles. Unfortunately, AI’s promise also comes with costs — for example, the potential of large-scale job displacement because of automation is one of today’s most pressing concerns. How this emerging technology will ultimately transform government is still unclear. So far, however, agencies at every level are using AI to help analyze data, recognize patterns and perform manual tasks. AI has also been a core component of many agencies' COVID-19 responses.

Download the guide to read more about how artificial intelligence and machine learning will decide the future of government agencies' IT. You'll learn how AI and ML:

  • Can improve health, safety and national security
  • Will help define tomorrow's workforce
  • Will lead to new discoveries in data
