As new forms of advanced technology are introduced to government users, there are many questions about what to pursue, what to invest in and what to simply observe for a while. A good way to learn and share is thru the various communities that have sprung up in government that are focused on AI or Robotic Process Automation and to listen to the experiences of others at agencies that may be further along the development process. Join leaders from government and industry and learn about AI, RPA, machine learning, and DevOps. Hear about what is working in government agencies and how the processes need to change to support the new tech.

Selected topics may cover:

  • What is the current guidance on the use of AI and similar tech
  • Leveraging emerging tech to glean new value from data troves
  • High performance computing
  • Advanced communications networks
  • Best ways to acquire and test new technologies
  • How to adapt as work flows change
