AI in Business

Emerj CEO Daniel Faggella recently spoke at the OECD headquarters in Paris for the creation of their AI Policy Observatory. At the event, we spoke with this week's guest: Lynne Parker, Deputy Chief Technology Officer at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Lynne talks to us about what the US is doing with AI currently at a national level and what the country's priorities are when it comes to AI.

This interview is made all the more relevant by the fact that the private sector is freezing up due to the coronavirus. Meanwhile, the public sector is still spending money on AI and innovation. If you want to learn what the opportunities are for vendors and service providers that want to work with the US government, get our US Public Sector AI Opportunity Report at emerj.com/gov1.
