HHS Sees Expanded Use of Artificial Intelligence Tools in Fiscal Year 2023

The Department of Health and Human Services’ artificial intelligence use case inventory more than tripled during fiscal year 2023 to 163 instances from 50 use cases previously. The increase indicates that the department is committed to leveraging trustworthy AI as a critical enabler of its objectives, HHS Chief Information Officer Karl Mathias told FedScoop.

The National Institutes of Health managed most of the HHS’s AI tools, followed by the Food and Drug Administration and the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response, FedScoop reported.

Among the inventory’s newly-reported AI use cases are the tools used by the NIH for classifying HIV-related grants and predicting stem cell research subcategories of applications.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics indicated in the inventory that it is looking for an AI tool for transcribing cognitive interviews used for evaluating survey questions and respondents’ answers. The center plans to compare outputs from OpenAI’s Whisper automatic speech recognition system and VideoBank, a company providing digital asset management tools.
