AI Federal Workforce Certification
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FEDERAL WORKFORCE CERTIFICATION
Developed by: Artificial Intelligence Working Group, ACT-IAC Emerging Technology Community of Interest
Released: December 9, 2020
The ACT-IAC AI Working Group launched an “AI Curriculum Committee” with the goal to explore how to assess the AI knowledgebase across the Federal workforce. Given that strengthening Federal agencies’ AI knowledge could have direct impact on the government’s ability to fulfill its mission, making certain that there was a minimum standard of AI understanding within the government is a strong first step. In addition, a foundational understanding of artificial intelligence and digital competencies will equip more Federal employees with knowledge to make ethical decisions applying AI to solve the many agency mission goals. The paper documents a minimum threshold to certify this workforce.
