"Artificial intelligence (AI) via predictive analytics is a game-changer."

The Hill: At last week's Kentucky Derby, an AI platform that had previously predicted the winners of the Oscars and Super Bowl predicted the Kentucky Derby superfecta. By Chuck Brooks and David Logsdon

'The AI platform predicted the first-, second-, third- and fourth-place horses at 540-1 odds, netting the technology's inventor Louis Rosenberg $10,842 on a $20 bet. How will this translate to the federal government?

'On May 3, The White House issued a very interesting document: "Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence." Recognizing that AI is a technology area full of both promises and potential perils, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy announced that it will co-host four public workshops topics in AI to spur public dialogue on AI and machine learning.

'In addition, a new National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Subcommittee on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence was established to monitor state-of-the-art advances and technology milestones in AI and machine learning within the federal government.'
