GSA Announces Second Cohort of Presidential Innovation Fellows Focused on AI

The General Services Administration has selected 11 technology leaders to join the second batch of the Presidential Innovation Fellows 2024, which aims to harness artificial intelligence’s potential in various use cases.

Among the selected individuals are John Cronin, a former Tembo Health product manager; Pranava Raparla, who previously served as Microsoft’s product manager; and James Pavur, a former lead software engineer at Istari Digital, an early-stage startup developing next-generation tools to facilitate the digital engineering of physical objects, the General Services Administration said.

The technologists will perform government service for a year at eight federal agencies, including the Department of Energy and the Department of Justice, and work on projects that will explore how AI can increase access to justice and enhance the electric grid infrastructure safely and responsibly, among other initiatives.

“This new class of fellows will focus on values-driven implementation aligned with the Executive Order on AI so that we can harness the benefits of this new technology, mitigate the risks, and ensure Americans get better service delivery from their government,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan.
