GSA Supports Biden’s Executive Order on Secure AI Adoption
President Joe Biden has signed a new executive order focused on the implementation of artificial intelligence in federal agencies.
Robin Carnahan, the head of the General Services Administration, said the EO promotes the responsible use of AI, ensuring that the technology enhances government operations while protecting U.S. networks from the safety and privacy risks associated with AI.
The EO also seeks to address gaps in AI talent related to national defense. In support of the president’s orders, the GSA has increased its efforts to attract AI experts to public service, allowing them to support the Technology Transformation Services and other tech-related programs, according to Carnahan’s statement GSA .gov published.
The agency administrator noted that the GSA is seeking talents who can help bring AI technologies to government entities and build capacity in AI regulation and research and development.
Ann Lewis, director of the GSA’s Technology Transformation Services, said the agency will also continue coordinating with federal agencies to promote the responsible use of AI and establish strategies under the FedRAMP program to ensure its authorization process prioritizes cloud-based AI products.
