Hoping to help government make sense of the endless data it collects, Deloitte has launched an AI platform made for the public sector.

CortexAI for Government, which works in on-premise and hybrid environments as well as all the major cloud services, includes a suite of applications, tools, models and data sets. That includes RegExplorer, a tool already in use in many government agencies which identifies conflicting, redundant or outdated regulations.

It also includes natural language processing tools, which help parse through speech and text in order to pull out meaning and sentiment, model training and situational awareness functions.

According to a press release accompanying the announcement, Deloitte is also offering ways to audit AI algorithms and report on accuracy and equity.

“Through CortexAI for Government, we will help agency leaders and frontline public servants introduce new AI solutions and execute their organizations’ missions more effectively and with reduced cost,” said Ed Van Buren, a Deloitte Consulting principal and leader of Deloitte’s public-sector AI practice, in the statement. “We are also deeply committed to advancing the ethical use of AI so that its use in American government becomes a model for the commercial sector and the world.”

Artificial intelligence has already found its way into government in many functions, ranging from automated license plate readers to cybersecurity. But much of it is baked into third-party software and focused on specific use cases; broad-ranging platforms in the vein of CortexAI for government aren’t as commonly seen at the state and local level. Deloitte is, in many ways, trained toward large far-reaching technology systems as a company; it’s responsible for many massive IT contracts in the U.S. such as unemployment insurance and Medicaid Management Information Systems.
