ViON-Backed GBC Report Says US Gov’t Lags in AI Implementation; Rob Davies Quoted

Rob Davies

TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 29, 2019 — A ViON-supported study by the Government Business Council found that lack of organizational resources, direction from management and supporting technology mainly hinders the federal government’s adoption of artificial intelligence, with only 22 percent in the process of implementing AI, ExecutiveBiz reported May 20.

GBC noted in a research summary on Nextgov that 40 percent of the 668 surveyed federal decision-makers said it will take two years or more for AI to be mission-critical in their organization, but only 15 percent believe they do not have any need for AI tools.

“[With] an adequately nimble process, and with sufficiently creative partnerships, opportunities for AI in government have the potential to transcend jurisdictional boundaries and impact a broad variety of organizational priorities,” the report concluded.

“This research aligns with a powerful trend in our industry that favors fewer boundaries and more flexibility across the IT environment in order to support growing technologies like AI and analytics,” Rob Davies, executive vice president of operations at ViON, said in a Meritalk report.
