DOE boosts AI training

The head of the Department of Energy's artificial intelligence office gave more details last week on plans to address agencies’ struggles developing talent in computer science. Cheryl Ingstad explained that the Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office is developing a training program in coordination with DOE‘s 17 National Laboratories to assist scientists in obtaining the skills they need to work with AI and data. “One of the things we’ve heard is that the scientists really want to work in the area of their specialty, but they don’t want to become AI experts to utilize these tools or to manage the data,” Ingstad said. “So how do we get data managers and how do we get AI experts to the operational levels here and the research levels to support our scientists that way?” Dave Nyczepir has the story.

Suzette Kent talks TMF, multi-year modernization

A month after leaving her role as Federal CIO, Suzette Kent is back for an interview with FedScoop about some of the biggest challenges the federal government faces in achieving meaningful digital transformation. In the conversation, Kent explained that one of the biggest barriers facing agencies is the existing funding model for long-term modernization projects. “It is a fact that most technology projects take more than a year. And they certainly take more time to execute in the government perspective, when you look at the timeframe for acquisition, and all the things that you have to do along the path of a project,” even for something simple, Kent said. Billy Mitchell spoke to Kent.
