The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is sending representatives to meetings and conferences to promote its information technology modernization effort to facilitate analysis and sharing of sensitive government data between agencies within the intelligence community, FCW reported Monday. IC has “world class computational capability” said John Sherman, chief information officer at ODNI. “Now we need to make sure that data is fully unlocked.”

Sherman said ODNI is advancing a concept that moves toward data capture, analysis and sharing across common platforms to achieve a mission. Intelligence agencies released a strategy in 2017 intended to implement the concept through the use of machine learning-backed analysis, automation and shared services.

He also noted that identifying and harmonizing government data in relation to IC’s cloud initiatives “sets the table” for the use of artificial intelligence and technologies.
