Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to create significant opportunities for government transformation, enabling greater efficiency, while improving the accuracy and effectiveness of decision-making and service delivery. The California Department of Technology (CDT) is leading a statewide AI Community of Practice (AICoP) to foster awareness on AI and AI related projects, where participants have the opportunity to share best practices, use cases, resources, and lessons learned. The AICoP is open to anyone interested in engaging and collaborating on how to responsibly adopt AI technologies.

What is Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes action that maximizes its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term “Artificial Intelligence” is used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic cognitive functions that humans associate with human minds, such as learning and problem solving.
