Government AI Hire, Use, Buy (HUB) Roundtable Series

Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET) and the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation, together with the Georgetown Law Institute for Technology Law and Policy (Tech Institute), are leading a series of invite-only roundtables examining the government’s use of artificial intelligence (AI).

The rise of AI has profoundly impacted every sector, extending its influence across government, the private sector, and academia. At a pivotal moment in late 2023, President Biden signed the groundbreaking Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence. A number of provisions in the EO highlighted the growing role that AI will play in government operations.

The series will bring together leading voices to grapple with the legal liability questions that AI poses, examine AI’s potential to transform government services, and consider how the government can better attract and use AI talent. The initiative is funded by a generous grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

The three centers, all members of Georgetown University’s Tech & Society Initiative, will lead a series of roundtables in 2024 with officials across government, civil society, academia, and the private sector to examine the U.S. government’s role as a

  • user of AI systems;
  • employer of AI talent; and
  • buyer of AI systems.

After each roundtable, high-level takeaways will be made public. The series will conclude with a final roundtable to synthesize conclusions from earlier events and provide final, actionable policy recommendations for the community. Results of this concluding roundtable will feature in a final public webinar.
