GAO Report Provides Progress on Agencies’ AI Use Case Inventory Creation

The United States government continues to ensure the responsible use of artificial intelligence across the organization.

On Tuesday, the Government Accountability Office released a report on the progress of 23 offices mandated by the Chief Financial Officers Act to annually provide a report on their current and future plans for using AI, FedScoop reported.

The report found that only five agencies covered by the law offered comprehensive information, while most agencies’ disclosures did not follow requirements and contained “data gaps and inaccuracies.”

According to the report, publicly disclosed use of AI reached 888 in October, based on data uploaded to the AI .gov website, with NASA using most of the technology, followed by the departments of Commerce and Energy.

GAO has been playing a vital part in ensuring Americans are protected amid the rapid development and growing use of AI. It launched an assessment of generative AI tools’ capability to cause public harm after a request from Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Gary Peters, D-Mich., in July.
