Panel: Can Artificial Intelligence Help Increase Fairness and Equity?
AI systems need to be ethical, responsible, transparent, and explainable. AI and ML systems are greatly dependent upon their training data to ensure results from the algorithms are fair and ethical. These concerns are particularly important for government decision making that may affect citizens and services.
Listen in as topic experts explore how the use of artificial intelligence to increase fairness and equity has become important throughout governmental decision-making. How should the government validate, measure, and ensure the ethics and fairness of AI systems and decisions?

Panel: Let AI Bring BIG Value out of Big Data
As government mission requirements grow, Federal agencies continuously seek ways to maximize the use of the vast data sets they collect and store. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a collection of technologies that excel at extracting insights and patterns from large sets of data. By using those insights and patterns to make future predictions, AI has the potential to improve mission effectiveness, stretch workforce capacity, combat waste, fraud, and abuse and drive operational efficiencies.
Tune into this panel as Federal CDO’s discuss their ever-changing data-centric environment combining real-time data streams, established databases, and legacy datasets. What are some major successes and challenges that occur at this intersection of finding value in the collected information. How can agencies best harness the AI potential to transform national security, agriculture, transportation and healthcare? What steps are completed and planned to leverage AI towards improvement in overall government operations?

Panel: USDA Food and Nutrition Service, Utilizing Advanced Analytics and the Potential of A.I.
Join the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to hear about how it leverages advanced analytics and important considerations to scale data science methods like machine learning to meet the nutritional needs of households in America. What do agencies need to consider when using data science methods such as machine learning, natural language processing, and others to supplement and potentially replace manual processes? FNS will discuss where it is as a government agency in ML/AI, how it all fits in relation to the White House and USDA priorities, and considerations in scaling these methods to ensure equity.
