Federal Agencies Report More Than 700 Artificial Intelligence Use Cases

The federal government has compiled over 700 artificial intelligence use cases from federal agencies in an AI .gov database.

The consolidated postings precede the expected release of AI regulations, including an executive order and Office of Management and Budget policy updates, FedScoop reported Friday.

Such efforts build on a Trump administration rule requiring agencies to submit use case inventories.

Lynne Parker, an AI expert who worked on the Trump-era EO, told FedScoop that compiling the use cases enables agencies to study what others are doing and understand the variety of potential applications.

The departments of Energy and Health and Human Services have each disclosed over 150 use cases, while others have submitted less than 50 each. The AI .gov database conflicts with third-party records, including more than 20 applications missing from some agencies’ inventories.

Parker noted that the number of disclosures is less than expected. In addition, she questioned whether OMB’s guidelines or the AI Bill of Rights would be able to cover the wide variety of use cases submitted by agencies.
