As governments increasingly put end users at the forefront of how they're developing digital services, we checked in with state CIOs to see where that effort intersects with the rise of artificial intelligence.
While some concerns about filling government IT roles persist, eliminating education requirements, leaning on skills-based qualifications and expanding internship programs are helping states find new talent.
Colorado Chief Data Officer Amy Bhikha is playing a central role in the state’s approach to artificial intelligence. She and her peers across the country are joining forces to safely unlock the opportunities AI offers.
As governments nationwide work toward providing digital services via an Amazon-like experience, CIO Greg Lane outlines launching Delaware’s single sign-on solution with a payment portal.
Colorado Chief Information Officer David Edinger leans into the mission-driven work of government. But what also appeals to candidates is the ability to contribute remotely from anywhere in the state.
With a crowd of more than 900 people, the NASCIO Midyear Conference buzzed with energy about generative artificial intelligence, along with concern that humans remain in charge.
With policies and guardrails in development around the country on responsible use of generative AI, Massachusetts and Georgia are creating environments where agencies can safely find real-world uses for the emerging tech.
States across the country are laying the foundation for a strong data program, but many admit there's a lot of work ahead of them. At NASCIO, we learned from Minnesota CIO Tarek Tomes and Texas CIO Amanda Crawford about how they support data literacy at the enterprise level.
Alaska CIO Bill Smith said that while ransomware is a huge threat and priority for him and the other state CIOs at the NASCIO Midyear conference, the most important way to turn the tide is getting back to basic cyber hygiene.
