Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the world from customized recommendations to more efficient financial decisions. In the public sector, AI has the power to tackle the government’s toughest homeland security missions in a responsible manner. DataRobot is a proud partner enabling governments and organizations to face their unique challenges and leverage AI for value they can trust.

Numerous government agencies recognize the opportunity with AI. In 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published its AI Strategy to help guide AI adoption as a department while also managing and mitigating risks. The same year, the Department of Justice (DOJ) published its AI strategy to realize the full potential of AI and guide its implementation in a way that fosters public trust and confidence.

Many topics of public sector interest have been covered in previous DataRobot publications, including cultivating an AI-ready workforceAI for cybersecurityenhancing AI governance, and deploying trustworthy AI. DataRobot webinars have hosted a number of homeland security speaker events for financial management and federal executives. DataRobot’s More Intelligent Tomorrow podcast has also featured discussions on important topics like human capital managementAI and the courtroomAI ethics, and the changing role of technology on citizenship.

Throughout May, DataRobot will be sharing a blog series titled “Trusted AI for Homeland Security.” Using new and relevant features of the DataRobot AI Cloud Platform, the DataRobot team will highlight four applications of Trusted AI for homeland security, which public officials can harness to make communities safer, more resilient, and more open.

Five topics will be covered in this series:

  • Visual AI for Security Inspections
  • AI for Border Transportation
  • AI for Climate Change and Weather Risk
  • AI for Human Capital Management

AI will create countless opportunities for homeland security leaders to better support their communities and lead their organizations. DataRobot believes trusted, explainable AI can help generate better outcomes than either humans or machines alone. Our team is here to help along the way.
