It’s a long-held belief that the government is slower to adopt technology, and in some cases, this is correct, but not for AI. The Federal government is being thoughtful about the ways they are adopting AI and are keeping up with industry in their adoption of these various technologies. From RPA bots and cognitive automation, predictive analytics, natural language processing, or AI chatbots to help citizens with various needs, AI is continuing to gain adoption. This panel will showcase how various agencies are using AI to help automate and improve various processes and how procurement fits into the picture from helping to identity AI technologies, to market research, to finally picking a company for the AI project.
