Booz Allen’s Josh Sullivan: Agencies Should Assess Goals, Involve Employees to Advance AI Adoption

Josh Sullivan

Josh Sullivan, senior vice president of analytics at Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH), has said there are three steps government agencies should consider when it comes to the adoption of artificial intelligence and one is to assess their goals relative to AI.

“All AI projects need to connect to the ultimate business goal or mission objective, and it is equally important that agencies develop a realistic understanding of what the technologies can and cannot do,” he wrote.

Agencies should also evaluate their capacity in terms of data, infrastructure, culture, talent and policies to maintain AI platforms as well as plan, design and develop for final operating capabilities, he noted.

Sullivan also discussed the capability of Booz Allen’s scalable platforms to further enhance cyber defenses and the need for agencies to encourage employee participation to advance AI adoption.

“No matter where they choose to deploy AI technology, agencies must make sure their workforce is prepared for and excited about the changes it brings,” he noted.

“Employees should have a variety of opportunities to learn about the technology and the importance of human/machine collaboration, as well as the infrastructure (hardware, software and data) in which to explore the different technologies.”
