Alan Chvotkin, Executive VP & Counsel at the Professional Services Council, discusses the AI Initiative Act, and what artificial intelligence can do for agencies.

A bill in the Senate would increase government investment in artificial intelligence. According to Fedscoop, the AI Initiative Act would provide $2.2 billion for AI research over the next five years. The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), says that Chinese and Russian involvement in AI is one reason why more resources need to be given for research and development. Alan Chvotkin, Executive VP & Counsel at the Professional Services Council, says that implementation of AI across government is important, but it can be difficult.


“You have to have a receptive organization but you also have to find the right circumstances. There are no magic bullets with this or magic wands that you can wave.  This is what we saw in the use cases and inquiries that we had. It’s just a lot of hard work to put together, but the benefits are significant,” Chvotkin said.
