NARA to Publish Public Inventory of AI Use Cases

The National Archives and Records Administration is planning to publish its inventory of artificial intelligence use cases on the public-facing website AI .gov to build transparency into the agency’s AI technology projects.

Currently, the public is restricted from having access to NARA’s inventory uploaded to Max .gov,  an internal federal information-sharing platform operated by the Office of Management and Budget, FedScoop reported.

NARA CIO Sheena Burrell said the agency has begun pilot programs for AI, machine learning and robotic process automation technologies but it has yet to deploy any solution into production. The National Archives focuses on use cases that can improve its system’s natural language processing and records search features and support its backlog reduction efforts, Burell added.

Federal agencies are required to publish a public inventory of their AI use cases under Executive Order 13960 issued in 2020. The CIO Council recently released guidance for creating AI use case inventories in accordance with the EO, reiterating that all agencies should publish the lists on Max .gov and on public-facing websites.
