The Exploring AI in Government Podcast Series

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already having a real impact within government, as we have spoken with a number of federal leaders regarding their innovative use of the technology.  They have made a compelling case for AI in government, leaving one remaining question – what’s next for federal agencies adopting AI?
To conclude this season 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, look at where AI is headed.  Dr. Tim Persons, GAO’s chief scientist, talks about the technology’s evolution and how policies may need to change to accommodate.  The Department of Veterans Affairs newly appointed AI lead, Dr. Gil Alterovitz, discusses how AI can transform healthcare and the potential public-private partnerships needed to make it happen.

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.
