DHS Updates Its AI Use Case Repository for Third Time in 2023

Federal agencies are sharing ways they are making the most out of the benefits offered by artificial intelligence after a Trump executive order mandated its disclosure to the public.

In mid-November, the Department of Homeland Security updated its artificial intelligence use case for the third time in 2023 after the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services disclosed several ways it is using the technology.

In the now archived version of its AI public inventory, USCIS disclosed that it is using AI in several processes, including taking advantage of an AI-powered “evidence classifier,” a fraud detection system and a tool for predicting workloads, FedScoop reported.

For its evidence classifier tool, USCIS uses it to identify unlabeled pages within an application, providing the agency extra time for other processes.

In 2023, DHS made several announcements on new ways it is using AI. In August, DHS added new items to its AI use case list, including a facial recognition system used by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection offices.

In April, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas proposed to establish an AI task force to use the emerging technology to help in detecting fentanyl shipments and identifying illegal drugs.
