AI Policy Panel

Thu. July 15, 2021 @ 11:30 ET

This month AI in Government is hosting a special ‘AI Policy Panel‘ with the guest speakers Justin Worrilow, Bryan Lane, Elanchezhain Sivagnanam, and Ed McLarney! 



  • Justin Worrilow: Director of Data & AI, Federal Civilian at Microsoft

Featured Guest Panelists:

  • Bryan Lane, Director, Data & Artificial Intelligence at the General Service Administration (GSA)
  • Elanchezhain Sivagnanam, Chief Enterprise Architect at the National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Ed McLarney, Digital Transformation Lead for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

The adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in both the United States and internationally is accelerating with companies and governments looking to gain from the many benefits that AI can provide. However, with this increased adoption of AI, it means that regulations need to be established to address transparency, data protection, accountability, fairness, bias, safety, and related areas. Regulations should aim to maximize the benefits of AI while minimizing its potential costs and risks.


Centralizing and curating standards, best practices, and lessons learned would seem to present significant benefits to both agencies and practitioners, yet doing so presents its own technical, managerial, governance, and cultural challenges. This panel will discuss the benefits, risks, and challenges associated with AI policy and regulation as well as discuss AI policies and regulations currently being discussed/enforced at various agencies.



  • 11:30-12:30pm: AI Policy Panel
  • 12:30-1:00pm: Your Q&A and interaction
