Mike Hettinger, president of Hettinger Strategy Group, and Rich Beutel, principal at Cyrrus Analytics, discuss the upcoming OMB automation policy, and what might be in it.


Suzette Kent announced this week that the Office of Management and Budget is working on a new strategy to govern the use of automation in the executive branch. Mike Hettinger, president of Hettinger Strategy Group, says that the policy is needed to provide guidance on automation’s numerous applications. “Automation is really an extension of everything we’ve been doing in the data analytics space. I often call it advanced analytics. How do we do automate these processes we’ve been doing manually or with some technology that’s not as advanced… All of that tells me that agencies are going to do what they need to do, and continue to play a big role in pushing AI and robotics forward.” Rich Beutel, principal at Cyrrus Analytics, says that the policy is also needed to define what AI is in the government. “What is AI? It’s a buzzword. People think about Skynet instantly when the term comes up. It’s being used now primarily as a marketing slogan. You’ve got to figure out what it is. Is it a capability? Is it a software? How do you buy it?,” Beutel said.
