DHS Artificial Intelligence Corps Seen as Prime Opportunity for Industry Talents

Eric Hysen, the Department of Homeland Security’s chief information officer and chief AI officer, expects the agency’s program to hire 50 artificial intelligence experts in 2024 to be “a major draw” for talents, even as the private sector provides higher pay to them. 

The DHS jobs, with annual pay ranging from $123,000 to $191,900, offer some remote postings with travel opportunities, Hysen told Federal News Network after his speech at the recent Homeland Security and Defense Forum in Washington. He added that the AI positions’ functions in the DHS carry a huge appeal not only in the work on cutting-edge technology but also in the job’s critical missions, such as fighting child abuse and acquiring American citizenship.

According to the DHS official, the agency is recruiting “pretty senior level talent” aggressively and partnering with organizations across the United States to find candidates for its AI corps, Federal News Network reported Monday.

The agency’s AI corps will initially report at  Hyden’s DHS headquarters office before they are deployed across the agency where their services are required.
