The Technology Modernization Fund (TMF) is currently seeking proposals for artificial intelligence projects aimed at modernizing legacy systems, enhancing service delivery, and accelerating mission objectives. These projects will 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 has revealed that 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, stated that they have identified over 700 use cases where AI is being deployed across the federal government. Examples include using AI to anticipate and mitigate prescription drug shortages and supply chain issues as well as assisting cyber forensic specialists in detecting anomalies and potential threats in federal civilian networks.
According to Martorana, who was previously named a Wash100 awardee, the use of TMF has the potential to accelerate AI usage in government and unlock the innovation that is capable of delivering for the public.
