Agencies, Companies Present AI Systems, Apps at Census Bureau’s Demo Day

The Census Bureau hosted an event on Friday to provide federal agencies, companies and nongovernmental organizations the opportunity to demonstrate their technology platforms using data from various agencies, FCW reported Sunday.

Several technologists showcased their artificial intelligence platforms, applications and open data-based tools at the demo day in response to the bureau’s Opportunity Project tech sprint. Microsoft presented a chatbot that helps match patients to clinical trials, while IBM built an AI-based system designed to help veterans search for jobs based on their interests and skill sets.

Drew Zachary, director of the bureau’s Opportunity Project and co-director of Open Innovation Labs, said the agency will hold related tech sprints, including one that will encourage citizens to respond to the 2020 Census.
