Visionary Panel: Women in AI and Data Analytics

Thousands of women have worked to provide U.S. government data and statistical analysis. This data helps the government operate but also helps civilians, nonprofits, and academia. Even though there have been great advances with women in the government, there is still a large gender gap in Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 26.9% of women make up the federal technology workforce according to a recent study by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Despite this, Female leaders in STEM and AI have and still inspire young women to pursue career opportunities in engineering, AI, and sciences.

Listen to the successes of our female leaders in government, the hurdles they have had to overcome, and how the federal government can encourage more women to work in artificial intelligence and data analytics.

Visionary Panel: Securing AI and Cloud as New Tools in Federal Spaces

New tech shouldn’t be seen as a bad thing, but there can be challenges when it comes to implementing newer platforms, tools, and resources. Artificial Intelligence and migration to the cloud are two of the most recent emerging topics in the Federal government. Both tools have the potential to greatly reduce human error, make processes more efficient, and make needed data accessible. Artificial Intelligence can assist security teams against attacks such as malware, ransomware, phishing, and data breaches. Cloud computing enables local governments to be more operationally nimble in response to what are often dynamic shifts in computing capacity needs – such as requests for service from members of the community – as well as data storage requirements. Listen in to Federal Leaders discuss the pros and cons of these two tools in their organization and how security, funding, and efficiency all play a role in deciding what tools to adapt.

Visionary Panel: Artificial Intelligence Ethics in the Federal Government

The Federal Government is continuing to work to improve AI innovation and advancing AI. However, AI systems can display algorithmic bias. Different forms of AI bias include dataset, association, interaction, automation and confirmation. AI technology is already displaying intentional and unintentional biases. If full implementation of Artificial Intelligence is to be achieved, Artificial Intelligence are to be achieved by the United States, federal agencies will need to follow policies and implement practices, methods, and processes to ensure the technology is ethically, effectively, and efficiently created and implemented. 

Join us to see federal leaders talk about how they establish standards and guidance to navigate risks, and how they maintain the creation and curation of accurate and bias-free data sets.
