Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Working Group

Leadership Team

The White House Executive Order on American AI Initiative signifies unquestionable effort to promote AI technology and innovation in the federal government as a whole. This initiative has further translated into agency-level undertakings such as the DOD Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), and the GSA Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence.

ATARC is backing the federal CTO’s regulations for executing AI in ways that will make the quality of citizens’ lives grow, as well as support the administration’s directions successfully, by sharing knowledge for productive uses of AI. United States security, knowledge, and economic growth depends on it. Real-budgeted AI solutions, based on data governance and accountability is the goal for the years ahead.

The AI Working Group Meets every Friday from 1:00-1:45 PM.

Working Group Project Teams

Robotic Process Automation Project Team

This project team meets once a month at USAID for a small, monthly Seminar Series, which consists of industry engagements (2 hours each with 2-4 vendor presentations for approx. 50 attendees) where attendees can hear capability presentations from RPA vendors, learn industry perspectives and best practices, ask questions and network with industry-government colleagues in a more intimate setting, etc. This promotes better government exploration, understanding, and adoption of RPA technologies, as well as encourages meaningful conversations with industry,  while reiterating this theme through tangible events.
