Michael Boyce Named DHS AI Corps Director

The Department of Homeland Security has selected Michael Boyce as director of its AI Corps workforce.

Boyce moved to DHS from the White House Office of Management and Budget, where he served as a senior policy analyst focused on the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program and AI policy.

His appointment is part of the agency’s effort to hire 50 artificial intelligence technology experts who will form the AI Corps, which the DHS established to explore the responsible use of AI technologies to support missions, including combating fentanyl traffickers, child sexual exploitation and cyberattacks and assessing disaster damages, Nextgov/FCW reported.

Boyce’s public sector career also included time spent as chief of innovation for the refugee, asylum and international operations directorate at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and as a digital service expert at the U.S. Digital Service.

According to DHS, it uses new flexible hiring authorities from the Office of Personnel Management to accelerate the recruitment of qualified candidates.

The AI Corps, modeled after the USDS, will ensure the deployment of AI and machine learning technology does not violate privacy and civil rights and civil liberties, the agency said.
