9:00 Keynote: Open Data and AI Drive Digital Transformation in Government

Scott Lundstrom, Group Vice President and General Manager, IDC and AI World Government, Conference Co-Chair


Artificial Intelligence is poised to transform every aspect of government over the next decade. Every individual in the transformed organization will be impacted by AI’s ability to inform, augment, and automate decision making - and is just the beginning! Understanding the opportunity for new services and new models for citizen engagement will change the way we look at technology’s role in government. AI technologies bring threats and opportunities that must be managed to every organization, and new policies and guidelines will be required to harness these advances.

In this presentation, Scott Lundstrom, IDC Group Vice President and General Manager, will set the stage by sharing IDC’s Artificial Intelligence Framework, IDC’s “use cases” for Government Digital Transformation, and IDC’s Artificial Intelligence predictions that will impact government IT professionals over the next five years.

11:15 Keynote: Towards Explainable and Ethical AI

Minhas_RajRaj Minhas, PhD, Vice President, Director of Interaction and Analytics Laboratory, PARC 


Deep learning AI models are opaque and can institutionalize biases and errors. We are building models that are transparent and make it much easier to spot (and remove) biases in the training data. Such technological advances are necessary but not sufficient. So, we are developing an AI institutional review board (IRB) to review the data collection and modeling methods to ensure that they are ethical.

11:45 Keynote: Connecting the Nation’s Healthcare Data

Dr. Siddiqui will discuss the implementation of HHS’s enterprise data strategy focused on leveraging data for decision making. She will also address the Department’s approach to the development of an AI strategy and the elements of institutional capacity building required to fully utilize its data assets.

Ames_RobertRobert Ames, Senior Director, National Technology Strategy, VMware Research, VMware


Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) offers tremendous opportunities for many organizations, but advancing its use from experimentation to production deployment requires powerful, resilient, and adaptive IT infrastructure to support the entire AI/ML pipeline. Mr Ames will describe how AI/ML techniques can be used to deliver on the vision of a high-scale resilient, and secure self-driving data center.

Kanaan_Mike9:00 Keynote: Putting the “AI” in Air Force: Pragmatic Principles for the Future

Captain Michael Kanaan, Co-Chair for Artificial Intelligence, U.S. Air Force 


Those at the forefront of using AI applications to accomplish their personal and organizational pursuits will enjoy significant new opportunities and advantages, including control of tools that analyze more information and prescribe more strategies than ever before. Along the way, however, there will be costs. Some will be unexpected and some will be significant, particularly for those who lag behind. In the age of AI, second place will be of ever-diminishing value. Hear about the Air Force’s path forward and lessons learned for organizations also moving along the way.

9:30 Keynote: Infrastructural Components to Enable AI and Machine Learning at NASA 

Brian Thomas, PhD, Agency Data Scientist and Program Manager for Open Innovation, NASA


With decades of project and mission data at NASA, the job of managing the data and keeping it accessible is outpacing the capacity of its personnel. Current IT infrastructure is inadequate to tackle many important problems at NASA that require artificial intelligence and machine learning. This keynote provides insight into the desirable infrastructural components to enable these solutions.

Mattingly-Jordan_Sara11:35 Keynote: The Sublime Uses of AI in the Public Sector

Sara Mattingly-Jordan, PhD, IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical AI, Assistant Professor Center for Public Administration & Policy Virginia Tech


Does the public sector have a special obligation to get AI ethics “right”? How would we, in the public sector, know that we had “gotten it right”? Calls for someone, anyone it seems, to intervene on the consequences of the uses of AI has led to a burgeoning pile of books, reports, articles, listicles, and value statements. Many of these reports imply that the uses of AI by governments is somehow different than the uses of AI by private actors. Wrapping our policies around the challenge of developing and deploying ethical AI in the public sector requires wrapping our heads around the sublime nature of AI. To do this means we need a vocabulary to describe the enormity of AI and its effects. This brief talk outlines the resources to build and use just such a vocabulary.
