In today’s data-driven world, expectations and challenges are at levels not seen before by government agencies. Being data-driven is no longer an aspiration, it’s a necessity. Government agencies need to digitally transform, build data resiliency, and get more out of legacy technologies.
Paul Dillahay, president and CEO of Empower AI, joins MeriTalk to discuss how an AI-empowered digital workforce can create efficiencies and enable employees to focus on high-value tasks, staving off burnout.
MeriTalk sat down with James Bench, senior principal at Maximus, to assess Federal AI and ML adoption, how agencies can select the right projects to apply these technologies, and how to build momentum around adoption and utilization.
In all corners of the tech world, cutting-edge research is thriving, and emerging technologies are supporting mission-critical work. Cybersecurity pioneers are implementing zero trust principles to help keep the nation safe from cyber threats, while artificial intelligence (AI) is a growing presence in Federal agencies.
Manufacturing organizations of all sizes, including manufacturing for Federal organizations and by Federal contractors, have long been at the forefront of the application of new technologies. A recent study found that almost all – ninety-five percent – of Federal technology leaders feel that the appropriate use of artificial intelligence (AI) could supercharge the effectiveness of government and […]
While signal processing applications have traditionally relied on special accelerators like field programmable gate arrays to deliver real-time performance, 5G – with dramatically lower latency and radically greater bandwidth – is now accelerating adoption of GPU-accelerated signal processing. […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) can help make small improvements to discrete agency operations, or it can be a game changer that helps agencies meet their missions in ways we can’t imagine today.
Here’s an overview of the conditions of AI adoption in Federal agencies, a look into the policy drivers likely to change the AI development equation, and guidance from experts at ViON and Dell Technologies Federal, who help agencies work their way through the process of mining greater data insight.
Every government agency is loaded with data that it could use to fulfill its mission more efficiently and effectively. But getting from here to there isn’t necessarily an easy proposition. Business intelligence (BI) and analytics solutions can help.
Traditionally, Federal IT applications were managed through a set of disparate point tools, each requiring human involvement. As applications grew out of the traditional data center into private cloud – and subsequently into public and hybrid clouds – the old way of doing things could no longer scale to meet the needs of Federal agencies.
Government mandates are pushing agencies to accelerate cloud migration, causing them to improve applications to make them cloud ready, while also consolidating data centers and connecting remote workers to new cloud environments. This is leading to a massive increase in application data, which needs continuous monitoring and analysis.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are driving breakthroughs in innovation, but Federal agencies struggle to keep up with the growth of data that these technologies produce. IT leaders’ frustration with their agency’s data management strategies is driving new demands for secure and efficient data storage and management.
Across every level of government and industry, employees expect constant and reliable access to the data, applications, and tools they use to complete daily tasks. The onset of the global pandemic only accelerated this trend. Government agencies and contractors have been working to arm their employees with the tools and resources needed to remain efficient. To solve remote work challenges and maintain office productivity, agencies can implement a GPU-accelerated Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
Harness was created to help every company build and deliver software with the speed and quality of the world’s top software firms. Customers expect top tier software – but most agencies don’t have the budget or developer time/talent to execute. Enter Harness: your ticket to becoming an elite performer in software delivery.
Manufacturing for government projects requires stringent security to protect intellectual property. The onset of the global pandemic and remote work at scale forced organizations to move from physical workstations to a virtual workstation model to maintain productivity and security.
Today, the world is in the grip of a “digital revolution,” encompassing an explosion of emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, nanotechnology, and more. This provides new opportunities and challenges for safeguarding data in a modernized environment.
Eighty percent of federal data today has a Geospatial Information Systems component. As the amount of data and project sizes continue to snow ball, federal teams need high-compute power at any location to process data quickly, effectively, and access that data.
Federal agencies have new opportunities to integrate emerging technology directly at the network’s edge, often in rugged environments. Accelerated processing at the edge is critical for AI-enabled applications, including disaster relief, intelligence gathering, or cyber security, where real-time insights are critical. More on building the digital future with solutions designed for unique mission requirements.
Without a cohesive data strategy, your organization will be at a disadvantage in dramatically changing markets. To be successful, you need a data strategy that enables you to access all your core data wherever it resides.

The Internal Revenue Service’s research unit has a suitably expansive agenda for big data. The tax agency pulls in voluminous data on revenue collection, refunds, and enforcement efforts. The task of the IRS Research, Analysis, and Statistics division is to sort through that data and help the tax agency make better decisions. The division’s responsibilities include econometric modeling, forecasting, and compliance studies. It also serves as IRS’ focal point for developing research databases and supporting infrastructure. The research group taps big data to support its activities. The data-driven approach promotes greater efficiency in resources used for tax administration, according to Jeff Butler, director of Research Databases within the IRS Research, Analysis, and Statistics division.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, like many large organizations, is taking on the Big Data problem: the task of analyzing enormous data sets to find actionable information. In JPL’s case, the job involves collecting and mining data from 22 spacecraft and 10 instruments including the Mars Science Laboratory’s Curiosity rover and the Kepler space telescope. Tom Soderstrom, IT chief technology officer at JPL, joked that his biggest Big Data challenge is more down to Earth: dealing effectively with his email inbox. But kidding aside, JPL now confronts Big Data as a key problem and a key opportunity. “If we define the Big Data era as beginning where our current systems are no longer effective, we have already entered this epoch,” Soderstrom explained.
