For some reason, the topic of generative artificial Intelligence has embedded itself into the common mind. It is so pervasive that one might walk into a local Seven-Eleven and hear a conversation about ChatGPT.
It may be fine for an undergraduate student to use generative AI to help write a term paper, but those who manage federal agencies must get serious about how generative AI can help, or hurt, their agency.
Today, we sat down with Dr. Jennifer Sample from Accenture Federal Services. In addition to her academic achievements, she also has decades of experience in advanced technology as well as ten patents. She brings a great perspective to this discussion.
During the interview, she suggests that one should be open-minded to the capabilities of artificial intelligence but remember that federal data sets should be combined with generative AI with an abundance of caution and keeping ethics top of mind.
Stories about ChatGPT producing ridiculous messages are replete in the current literature. That is a situation that is not tolerable in organizations like the Federal Reserve or the Department of Defense.
She suggests that listeners look at what Accenture Federal Services is doing with its Generative Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence. The Center is gathering top data scientists and software developers to apply the technology to federal systems. The idea is to first simulate prototypes in systems with synthetic data to see how they would work before even considering any federal application.
Dr. Sample suggests that, when used properly, generative AI can help with intelligence synthesis, help in coding, improve knowledge management, and even generate content. The Center of Excellence even has the capability to evaluate environments where solutions need to be scaled.
Listen as Dr. Sample gives you example after example of how federal agencies can safely take advantage of the breakthroughs being made in generative AI.
