Suzette Kent: Gov’t ‘United’ in Prioritizing AI Implementation

Suzette Kent

Suzette Kent, federal chief information officer and 2019 Wash100 Award winner, said the White House is focusing on deploying artificial intelligence to simplify manual functions and support information technology modernization efforts, Federal Times reported Tuesday.  AI can do manual jobs with a lower margin of error and less time while also creating new positions, Kent told attendees at the AI World Government Conference in Washington, D.C.

She added that advanced computing platforms, high-quality data, modernized networks, security and ethical implications are key factors to successfully implement AI in line with the White House’s recent IT modernization strategy. “The whole of government has a focus on AI capabilities and federal leadership is united in making this a priority,” she said.
