Catalyst for Change: Personable 2024 AI Summit Addresses AI Skills Gap For Public Sector Financial Investigations

The march toward digital transformation in the federal sector continues unabated, as agencies increasingly rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance operations, streamline processes, and combat financial fraud. Yet, at the heart of this technological revolution lies a critical challenge – the AI skills gap within the federal workforce. Six in 10 public sector IT professionals attribute their sluggish AI adoption to a sheer lack of relevant skills. This gap not only impedes the deployment of AI technologies but also diminishes the potential for these tools to catalyze significant advancements in public service delivery.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, especially when it comes to financial investigations. Programmatic fraud cost agencies between $233-$521 billion between fiscal years 2018 and 2022, which offers agencies a compelling incentive to evaluate and adopt innovative AI tools that can proactively identify and prevent fraudulent transactions. However, the effectiveness of these tools hinges on the ability of investigators to use them adeptly—a reality that sharply highlights the AI skills gap.

Amidst this landscape, President Joe Biden’s directive to infuse the federal workforce with 500 AI experts by 2025 serves as a clarion call for action. This ambitious talent acquisition plan, coupled with the Defense Department’s own hiring spree, underscores a commitment to government and industry collaboration that accelerates digital transformation efforts.

Recognizing the urgency of this need, Personable, Inc. is hosting the 2024 AI Summit, scheduled for May 15-16, 2024, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The AI Summit is set to be a foundational event to empower public sector financial investigator AI training and engagement.
