Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on Public Administration

National Academy of Public Administration
1600 K St NW Suite 400
Washington DC,

Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 8:30am - 10:30am

On February 11, 2019, President Trump signed an Executive Order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence.  AI and robotics continue to generate great interest, but their initial deployments across government organizations indicate that they have the potential to impact the field of public administration in ways that may not yet be fully understood.   

On April 18, join the Academy and its Standing Panel on Technology Leadership for the release of its new publication, Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on Public Administration.  The book covers three foundational topics.

  1. AI and The Future of Work
  2. AI and Ethics
  3. AI and the Public Administration Curriculum

Dr. Lynne Parker, Assistant Director for Artificial Intelligence in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, will provide keynote remarks to set the stage and highlight the current applications and trends for AI in the federal government. Then, a panel of the book's lead authors will present the Academy's work and examine the implications of AI for public service today, ethics and bias in government AI applications, and future generations of public servants.

Don't miss out on this timely forum, hosted at the Academy's offices.
