JMI Releases New Policy Brief on Artificial Intelligence and State Government Operations

TALLAHASSEE — While many consumers and private companies have embraced artificial intelligence (AI), state governments also stand to benefit from using and implementing the technology. Despite the immense benefits of AI to streamline government work, the Biden administration and state governments have sought to establish a hostile regulatory regime that could crush innovation and prevent the full benefits of the technology from being realized. In this new paper, “Bringing Government into the 21st Century: Artificial Intelligence and State Government Operations,” The James Madison Institute outlines potential state government uses of artificial intelligence and makes policy recommendations for how state governments can modernize operations and deliver better services.

“Artificial Intelligence has the power to streamline state government operations, not just here in Florida, but across the country. In releasing this policy brief, JMI hopes to illuminate the ways emerging technologies can make government work better for citizens in the coming years. We also hope to show why state lawmakers should be embracing these technologies and not rejecting them.” — Dr. Edward Longe, Director, Center for Technology & Innovation, The James Madison Institute
