Dorothy Aronson, Chief Information Officer at the National Science Foundation, discusses the technologies the organization is exploring to improve the workforce and the motivators they’re using to spur agency-wide adoption.


The President’s Management Agenda prioritizes moving employees from ‘low-value’ work to ‘high-value’ work. To accomplish this, one proposal is to automate the low-value work through artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies. One agency leading the charge is the National Science Foundation, which is using AI to monitor network traffic for security risks. While some are concerned that use of this technology could lead to jobs being eliminated, Dorothy Aronson, Chief Information Officer at NSF, has a more optimistic view.   “What’s important is that artificial intelligence and some of these advanced technologies that are threatening jobs are also providing new opportunities. … If we can look to the future a bit [sic] then we can begin retraining and reskilling the current workforce and directing them towards the things that are innately human (that only humans can do), and also to the new jobs that will open up as a result of artificial intelligence tools being implemented,” Aronson said.
