The White House’s office of science and technology policy will conduct a series of four public workshops to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with the adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning tools.

Ed Felten, deputy chief technology officer at the White House, wrote in a blog entry posted Tuesday that OSTP will co-host the events with the National Economic Council, nonprofit organizations and academic institutions between May 24 and July 7 in Washington, New York City, Seattle and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The White House will use input from the workshops to draft a public report later this year, he said.

Felten also noted that a subpanel of the National Science and Technology Council will hold its initial meeting by the second week of May to discuss technological advancements in the field of AI and machine learning.

He said the NSTC’s subcommittee on machine learning and AI will also work to leverage such platforms to change the way federal agencies deliver government services to the public.
