The Exploring AI in Government Podcast Series

Despite the promise of artificial intelligence, concerns around its ethical use loom large, and in no place is this more pressing than in government. What are the most immediate ethical concerns regarding AI? How can government use AI to do good? How should AI be used in government? And, conversely, when should governments stay away from the use of AI?

In the next episode of the Exploring AI in Government podcast, hosts Dominic Delmolino, chief technology officer at Accenture Federal Services, and Kathleen Walch, principal AI analyst at Cognilytica, explore these issues with two noted experts. First, they travel north of the border to talk with Michael Karlin, team lead on data policy at Canada’s Department of National Defence, to learn how the Canadian government is addressing these concerns. Then they speak with Dr. Eric Daimler, a former Office of Science & Technology Policy lead for AI and robotics, to learn what the U.S. government can do.

Artificial intelligence isn’t just a term used in science fiction any longer, it’s a real technology that’s having a true impact on the world and workforce around us. And as the technology and its use cases evolve, government services and missions stand to gain much from implementing AI effectively: From improving cybersecurity to automating menial tasks to supercharging citizen engagement. 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.
