How & When to Create Custom AI/ML Solutions in Government

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (MI) are changing the way we interact, write, and work. Government agencies that are early adopters are seeing huge benefits in efficiency.  

Whether through off-the-shelf tools like ChatGPT, or custom solutions, in this webinar we will discuss how AI has impacted some government agencies and how you can think about using AI in your work.  Learn how the latest innovations in AI can affect and support the public sector.

Areas we’ll be exploring:

  • Where can AI help improve government now? 
  • What are examples of how the Federal government is using AI today? 
  • How can agencies get started using AI/ML now?

This webinar is ideal for government digital program leaders, and those interested in using AI for government.
