NGA Official Discloses Responsible AI Deployment Plans

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is taking a cautious approach to implementing artificial intelligence-powered solutions across the organization.

In an interview with DefenseScoop, Anna Rubinstein, chief of responsible artificial intelligence at the NGA, disclosed how the experiences she gained from working on Project Maven are helping build enterprise capabilities and processes to support the agency. Since she assumed the position of the NGA’s responsible AI chief in the summer of 2024, Rubinstein has been leading the effort to produce a plan and training tool to guide the NGA’s technology pursuits, DefenseScoop reported.

Rubinstein discussed how the GEOINT Responsible AI Training plays a central role in ensuring that the NGA workforce better understands “what AI ethics means and looks like in practice.”

The Department of Defense component has been exploring how AI could help ensure it is future-proof. In March, Rachel Martin, director of NGA’s Maven Office and a 2024 Wash100 winner, shared that the agency is balancing rapid development and building AI the proper way and how such an approach is helping the NGA develop Project Maven.
