First DHS Artificial Intelligence Road Map Bats for Stronger Security, Responsible AI Use

Several artificial intelligence pilot projects, including tests on large language models and generative AI capabilities, are lined up in the first Department of Homeland Security road map for the responsible use of the technology. The programs under the DHS “Artificial Intelligence Roadmap” outlined for 2024 range from U.S. citizenship and immigration officers’ training to transforming law enforcers’ investigations. 

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a past Wash100 winner, pointed out that the road map aims at stronger national security, improved DHS operations and more efficient services while ensuring the protection of individuals’ privacy and civil liberties, Federal News Network reported Monday.

The road map tasks the DHS Science and Technology Directorate to lead in establishing an AI test and evaluation infrastructure, which calls for creating an AI/ML working group and a federated AI testbed.

Another pilot program in the DHS game plan calls for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s use of generative AI in disaster mitigation plans.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which issued its AI guidance in 2023, will also assess the potential of AI-enabled cybersecurity solutions and recommend further actions to Mayorkas.
