GSA to Hold AI Hackathon to Reimagine User Experience for Federal Websites

The General Services Administration will host an artificial intelligence-themed hackathon in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and New York City, inviting the public to develop solutions to redesign federal websites using AI and cloud-based tools.

The goal is to enhance user experience as citizens increasingly rely on AI for information and services, the GSA said.

Partnering with OpenAI and Microsoft, the GSA gives participants access to advanced tools such as large language models, code-writing technologies and features that ensure the reliability of AI-generated responses.

Zack Whitman, the GSA’s chief artificial intelligence and data officer, said the hackathon is designed to optimize services for the American public as they become more reliant on AI-powered tools.

The July 31 hackathon follows a series of recent GSA efforts focused on AI, including the development of AI sandbox environments and the release of a resource guide to assist federal customers in acquiring generative AI solutions.

A prize pool of $10,000 awaits the hackathon’s winning participants and teams, according to the GSA.
