GSA Launches Guide for Tech-Curious Agencies

The online resource focuses on practical applications of emerging technologies.

The General Services Administration launched a collaborative resource for agencies researching how technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain could improve government services.

The U.S. Emerging Citizen Technology Atlas, publicly launched today, aims to “demystify new technologies that have the potential to dramatically improve services for citizens, cut through the hype and get to the bottom of practical applications,” according to a GSA blog.

Agencies are invited to contribute to the Github-hosted Atlas, which features use cases, workshop reports, and evaluation and testing resources collected from the GSA’s Emerging Citizen program’s inter-agency communities.

GSA said the atlas is a "work in progress" with information about virtual and augmented reality and social technology  labeled “coming soon.”
