Jay Boisseau, AI and HPC technology strategist at Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL), has said collection of more digital data, emergence of new processors and graphics processing units and development of better algorithms are the three elements that could help federal agencies create a “perfect storm” to push the adoption of artificial intelligence.
“With AI, agencies can take advantage of object classification, video analytics, natural language processing and translation of unstructured data,” Boisseau wrote. “Ultimately, the technology gives us the ability to understand the present better by uncovering patterns and features that would have eluded humans or other analytics techniques.”
He discussed how AI could help agencies gain insights from data and improve the cybersecurity posture of government networks and support public safety.
“We should embrace the tremendous positive power of these capabilities for government, industry and research while making sure to understand AI’s limitations and risks,” he said.
Boisseau said the government should establish policies to promote responsible and fair use of AI to protect against misuse and make a positive impact on the society.
