US Federal Government Chief Information Officers (CIOs) gathered at the GITEC 2023 conference, event organised by the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) association, to discuss challenges and insights into the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and technology. The CIOs discussed topics such as data governance, cybersecurity, cloud computing, and digital transformation and modernisation in government agencies.

They emphasised the need for collaboration between government agencies, academia, and the private sector to advance technology and AI research. The CIOs also highlighted the importance of ethical and responsible AI development to ensure public trust and reduce the risks of unintended consequences. 

The use of AI in government agencies has the potential to enhance decision-making, streamline processes, and improve citizen services. However, there are challenges to overcome such as ensuring data privacy and security, addressing biases in AI algorithms, and providing adequate training for government employees to work with AI systems.
