Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Pillar

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.
