Visionary Panel: AI Policy: Implementing Throughout the Federal Government

In order to realize the benefits of Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) are to be achieved by the United States, the U.S. federal government will need to establish and enforce policies to ensure the technology is ethically, effectively, and efficiently created and implemented. There are currently more than 20 separate AI policy, ethics, and technical working groups scattered among various federal government agencies. Is it possible to ensure that all areas of AI policy are effectively addressed, with the accountability and transparency that U.S. citizens are due?
Please join this panel discussion on approaches to mitigating the risk. We’ll discuss a framework that identifies all categories of policy related to AIDA and provides recommendations for assigning responsibility for each area of AI policy to an identified governmental organization, along with a recommendation for the scope over which each organization’s policies are likely to be applied and enforced. Can such a framework support senior government leaders in:
a) ensuring that all AIDA policies have accountable organizations responsible for the policy formulation and enforcement, and
b) ensuring that the resulting policies are aligned to the values and priorities of the American people, are mutually consistent, and collectively complete?

Visionary Panel: CDO Panel

AI is the most disruptive technology innovation of our lifetime. Enterprises are embracing AI applications and leveraging a variety of data types (structured, unstructured, and semi-structured) for integrated processes across all lines of government and industry.

However, although organizations and agencies understand the importance and potential impact of AI, they often struggle to move from pilot to production. The top challenges that everyone must address in order to scale AI initiatives are: costs (i.e., hardware accelerators and compute resources), lack of skilled personnel, lack of machine learning operations tools and technologies, lack of adequate volume and quality of data, and trust and governance issues.

Tune in to hear a panel of CDOs offer considerations for how organizations and agencies can address these challenges, particularly when it comes to breaking silos between structured and unstructured data, unifying teams working with different tools and languages, and Enforcing consistent enterprise-grade security and governance

Visionary Panel: Intelligent Data Management: Next Step in Digital Transformation Journey

The evolving digital landscape means government organizations are forced to look ahead—to move forward—to keep up with the changes to better serve the citizens they support. Digital transformation efforts have been transforming organizations for years and now is the time to leverage data management initiatives to maximize and get the most out of this ‘journey’. ​

Like most businesses and other organizations around the world today, government agencies are seeking to reduce costs, realize operational efficiencies and deliver better services by using software as a service (SaaS) applications and other cloud solutions to digitally transform the way they operate. Effective data management and governance require leadership support—and being able to augment the right data at the right time requires not only data management but intelligent data management. Do you have a strategy in place to access and get value from your most important data—to protect the data? Tune in to learn how digitally mature your organization is and what your next move will be.

Visionary Panel: AI Guidebook: Use and Importance Throughout the Federal Government

If the benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) 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. There are currently dozens of AI projects underway across the federal government, each of which is following policies and standards according to its charter, local governance, and management oversight. Centralizing and curating standards, best practices, and lessons learned would seem to present significant benefit to these agencies and practitioners, yet doing so presents its own technical, managerial, governance, and cultural challenges. Is it worth the effort, and if so, what are the key considerations to keep in mind as we do so?
