D.C. mayor signs order to harness AI in government services

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently signed a Mayor’s Order outlining actions that the District government will take to harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) in government services.

Bowser also announced D.C.’s Artificial Intelligence Values Statement and Strategic Plan, which will ensure that the District’s use of generative AI is in line with the administration’s vision of the city.

“We are going to make sure D.C. is at the forefront of the work to use AI to deliver city services that are responsive, efficient, and proactive,” said the mayor. “With these guiding values, we will make sure that when we use AI, we are responsible, and we use it in a way that aligns with our D.C. values.”

In pursuit of the goals with the aid of the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer, the order outlines the following actions:

Defining AI values

Establishing an Advisory Group on AI Values Alignment

Convening an AI Taskforce

Setting AI Benchmarks for District Government

“The Office of the Chief Technology Officer is at the forefront of finding safe, equitable ways to harness the power of AI in government services and how D.C. government—and the people we serve—can benefit from this new technology,” said Stephen Miller, D.C. interim chief technology officer. “I look forward to the potential of AI in improving government services for the benefit of all residents in Washington, D.C.”
