Keynotes & Tracks

 

The 3rd Annual AI World Government will provide a comprehensive two-day forum to educate federal agency leaders on proven strategies and tactics to deploy AI and cognitive technologies. With AI technology at the forefront of our everyday lives, the current administration is announcing several new and updated AI initiatives. AI World Government will report on the state-of-the-practice on how federal agencies are deploying and integrating AI and data-driven government services under these guidelines. The conference convenes experts from our nation’s strong innovation ecosystem across government, technology, business, and research to present the latest strategies and state of the technology to assist the public sector in leveraging advanced intelligent technologies to meet the missions of our government agencies.

The conference program will delve deeply into the following topic areas, and will include, but is not limited to the following subjects:




Track 1: Scaling and Operationalizing AI

October 18, 2021

The successful deployment of AI will prove to be valuable for government agencies, but several challenges remain in moving beyond simple intelligent automation like RPA and chatbots to reach the goal of augmented intelligence. In this track we will present agency and industry executives with experience confronting these challenges and how they are dealing with roadblocks and learning from their successful strategies. Topics will include:

  • Confronting the challenges of scaling and operationalizing AI
    • How to Use AI to improve service delivery
    • Federal agency case studies which focus on the challenges and specific solutions
    • Reengineering agency workflows and processes
    • Developing data management and governance strategies
    • Organizing stakeholders to determine roles of team members
    • Creating policies to ensure responsible and ethical AI


    Track 2: Emerging AI Technologies

    October 18, 2021

     

    Your agency has begun implementing ML, DL & AI tools into current workflows and infrastructure and are starting to see some gains, but where do you go from here and what’s coming next? With AI and its associated intelligent technologies continuing to advance each day with the potential to enable new applications and drive even greater efficiencies, those spearheading digital transformation within government agencies must stay up to speed on these emerging tools. This track provides attendees with a roadmap for the continuing evolution of AI over the next few years. Topics include:

    • The State of AI Today Within Government and What’s Coming Next?
    • Short vs Long Term Government Needs and Associated Technologies Available
    • Latest Advances in Computer Vision, Facial Recognition & Image Analysis with AI
    • Future Conversational AI & Language-Based AI
    • Developments in Autonomous Vehicles and Drones 
    • Advances in Intelligent and Robotic Process Automation
    • Everything You Need to Know About Quantum Computing
    • AI at the Edge – Edge vs Cloud Computing in Government
    • Combining AI with Augmented and Virtual Reality


    Track 3: Infrastructure Transformation

    October 18, 2021

     

    As government IT organizations continue to explore ways that AI can enable innovation, productivity, and efficiencies, a key question is how to build the right environment and infrastructure to support these compute-intensive, next-generation applications.

    From portable devices to edge computing nodes to cloud-based data centers, AI demands a tremendous number of resources. This track explores current use cases of how cloud-based infrastructure helps organizations capitalize on the potential of AI and machine learning and provides best practice examples of agencies on the cutting edge of AI and ML implementations.

    • Building the infrastructure to capitalize on the potential of AI
    • Leveraging the Federal Data Strategy to advance AI in government
    • Data services and system notification – How AI is being used for data center control
    • Infrastructure Transformation: Overcoming Challenges to AI Adoption


    Track 4: AI and Cybersecurity

    October 19, 2021

     

    AI has injected new capabilities into government and is already improving the missions and functions of federal, state, and local governments as well as governments globally. However, with globally interconnected IT allowing criminals, fraudsters, and hostile nations to continuously innovate, we must be mindful of the challenges of cybersecurity and counter-misinformation. At the same time, experience shows that AI itself has unique security challenges because of the nature of the algorithms involved so AI should be developed through a “secure by design” approach and algorithms must be protected. This track will convene AI security experts alongside those who are responsible for security within government agencies to share lessons learned and best practices in mitigating these serious challenges. Topics include:

    • Creating Your AI and Cybersecurity Strategy - An Executive View
    • Securing Your AI - What Are the Key Threats to Watch Out For?
    • Application of AI for Predicting and Preventing Cybersecurity Threats 
    • New Challenges in Countering Misinformation and Disinformation
    • How to Fool an AI by Feeding It Misleading Data?
    • How to Know If Either an External or An Internal AI Is Leading You Astray, And What to Do About It
    • Call to Action for Mitigating Future Risk and Threats


    Track 5: Future of Work

    October 19, 2021

     

    As government and private sector organizations navigate new ways of working in the COVID-19 era, they must negotiate adopting new AI technologies and new ways of working.  Fundamental questions revolve around ‘what applications should be deployed’ and ‘what new skillsets are required'? The growth and adoption of AI and intelligent automation solutions are giving rise to a new "digital worker" – automated technology that is rapidly changing the nature of the human workforce and related skillsets. Work transformation is about rethinking the way work gets done. It is a fundamental shift in the work model to one that fosters human-machine collaboration; enables new skills and worker experiences and supports an intelligent and dynamic environment un-bounded by time or physical space. This track will explore how work transformation impacts strategic government functions today and in the future.

    • Strategies to address talent, skills and training
    • How are agencies deploying AI enabled technologies to recruit train and retain key personnel and enhance their future of work capabilities?
    • How to develop an AI ready workforce?
    • How are agencies using AI Technologies (including VR) as an immersive environment to safely practice skills?
