Now more than ever, the Federal landscape is poised to leave behind dated, legacy systems and embrace digital modernization. With President Donald Trump signing an executive order prioritizing artificial intelligence (AI) research and development (R&D) and an expected increase in AI R&D in FY2021, all signs point towards an AI-focused future for the Federal Government. However, with this promising shift in priorities, what benefits can the public sector expect to reap from the implementation of AI?
Accelerate Mission Success
The first, and arguably the most significant benefit, is the ability for high-value employees to focus on high-level work. When the government workforce is spending time completing repetitive tasks, their availability to complete mission-critical work is greatly impacted. With the implementation of AI technologies, many processes can be automated to free up employees to focus on their area of expertise.
For example, when it comes to protecting sensitive citizen and agency data. As the government continues to embrace the benefits of the digital landscape, they must also exhaust their resources combating cyber adversaries who are operating on a quickly growing threat landscape. With artificial intelligence solutions, agency systems and devices can be monitored continuously, threats can be prioritized in real-time, and cyber defenders can react quicker to high-level threats.
Faster Project Delivery
Government data sets are growing at an alarming and unmanageable rate with no signs of slowing down. As a result, agencies can quickly get bogged down in data whose benefit often goes unrealized. AI can help agencies process, analyze, and put their data to use in ways that were never before possible. This means leadership can make informed, data driven decisions that accelerate project success and delivery timelines.
Additionally, the Federal Government is notorious for slowing down projects with a variety of forms, processes, and policies that cost employees valuable resources. Unfortunately, these processes are completely unavoidable in the Federal space. AI technologies can instantly streamline, automate, and track these tasks to completion.
Historically, the cost of modernizing legacy systems has been a major barrier to Federal innovation. With government workloads expanding and resources shrinking, investing in emerging technologies can often seem out of reach. However, modern AI solutions can be scaled to fit the unique needs and budget constraints of any agency – big or small.
Additionally, decision makers can easily test the value and success of AI projects within their agency on a small scale and then expand across team, departments, and entire agencies once the benefit is realized.
AI technologies also drive operational cost savings by automating time consuming, repetitive tasks and using computer intelligence instead of employees wherever possible.
