Artificial intelligence is a hot topic for the private and public sectors alike as the technology promises to revolutionize how organizations operate. But where does the U.S. federal government currently stand when it comes to AI? What agencies are leading AI innovation? And what are some of the most innovative ways government agencies are currently using AI?

These are just some of the questions we look to answer in the first episode of Exploring AI in Government. Hosts Dominic Delmolino, chief technology officer at Accenture Federal Services, and Kathleen Walch, AI and machine learning expert and managing partner at Cognilytica, kick off the six-episode series by speaking with Dr. Mona Siddiqui, chief data officer of the Health and Human Services Department and Rep. Will Hurd, a member of Congress that represents the San Antonio area and advocate for IT modernization.

Accenture's Exploring AI in Government Podcast seeks to dig past the hype and highlight how experts and pioneers are making AI a reality in the federal government.
