Opinion: Reviewing Use Case Inventory Could Help Agencies Integrate AI Effectively

Hitachi Vantara Federal’s chief data scientist said the Biden administration’s artificial intelligence executive order also entails the need for efficient strategies to integrate the technology into federal agencies’ workflows.

In an opinion piece that 4×24 member Pragyansmita Nayak wrote for the Federal Times, she shared that leaders would benefit from examining the different use cases that other federal agencies shared on the AI Use Case Inventory as it allows them to understand the purposes of integrating the technology. To effectively navigate over 700 AI use cases, Nayak suggested that leaders search for specific purposes while navigating the inventory to ensure that they extract valuable insights without wasting time and effort.

Other suggestions for a more efficient AI use case identification include data literacy, active communications with other AI contact persons and interagency evaluations, the Federal Times reported.

Federal agencies are required to report current and future AI use cases under the Chief Financial Officers Act, but not all agencies provide sufficient information. According to a GAO report released earlier in December, only five of the 23 agencies required to submit information provided comprehensive data needed for their AI use cases while the rest had inaccuracies and inconsistencies with the data they submitted.
