Steps for Acquiring and Implementing AI: Challenges and Successes

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

We are quickly approaching the two year anniversary of the National AI Initiative Act becoming a law, which created a task force committee to assist the state of AI in the Federal government. The use of AI in the government helps accelerate a lot of processes but it requires extensive work, research, and resources in its implementation. In addition, it requires a uniformed language and understanding of what AI can do for your organization.


Issues with procurement and acquiring AI can postpone the implementation stages. But, it is crucial that agencies are able to recognize what they need out of artificial intelligence and how best to utilize its abilities. Choosing the best AI strategy & approach can be a long challenge as technical capabilities, governance, and administration, as well as requirements for security, privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties are all important steps in initiating AI.


Listen in as experts discuss where they are in the procurement and implementation stages as well as where they see their agencies growing into. They will also discuss different issues and potential solutions that they’ve troubleshooted while working with AI.
