The Technology Modernization Fund, or TMF, has announced a call for project proposals focused on artificial intelligence (AI) projects designed to modernize legacy systems and enhance service delivery across the federal government. The General Services Administration made the announcement on Thursday, stating that the initiative aims to support the implementation of an October 2023 executive order on the secure and trustworthy development and use of AI across the federal government.
In a separate announcement, TMF said it is looking for project proposals focused on enabling rapid deployment, process automation, assistive technology, improved customer experience, and reduced administrative burdens. Clare Martorana, federal chief information officer and chair of the TMF board, emphasized that AI has already been deployed in over 700 use cases across the federal government. These include predicting prescription drug shortages and supply chain issues as well as assisting cyber forensic specialists in detecting anomalies and potential threats in federal civilian networks.
Martorana also highlighted that the use of TMF has the potential to accelerate AI adoption in government and unlock innovation that can benefit the public. She encouraged industry experts to join her at the Potomac Officers Club’s 5th Annual Artificial Intelligence Summit on March 21 to learn more about cutting-edge AI innovations from both government and industry sectors.
