GSA Launches Artificial Intelligence Community of Practice

The General Services Administration has launched a community of practice dedicated to the government-wide adoption of artificial intelligence technologies. GSA said Thursday its new AI CoP will aid in machine learning and deep learning, robotic process automation, human-centered interactions, natural language processing, rule-based automation, and robotics.

The effort also supports the federal government’s collaborative strategy to propagate and secure AI technology across the U.S. in partnership with industry, academia and foreign nations.

Suzette Kent, the federal chief information officer and 2019 Wash100 Award winner, and Anil Cheriyan, GSA’s director of Technology Transformation Services, to serve as the AI CoP’s executive sponsors.

TTS’ solutions division will oversee the CoP with the leadership of Steven Babitch, a member of the Presidential Innovation Fellows.
