We wanted to let you know of an upcoming free virtual AI Training Program available to all Federal employees from September 18 through September 28. The training program is sponsored by the General Services Administration AI Community of Practice and the Stanford University Institute for Human-Centered AI (HAI). GSA will be promoting the training this week. Please help spread the word and share with your agencies too.
The below training is designed to educate the federal workforce on the basics of AI:
These sessions are intended to introduce concepts and theory around artificial intelligence (AI) to empower federal employees with awareness of the technical concepts underlying AI, including various algorithm structures in AI and the technical underpinnings of foundation models, as well as examples of risks that have occurred through the use of AI and techniques that AI developers can use to mitigate risk. Thus, per the requirements as laid out by the AI Training Act, attendees should expect the session content to include technical aspects of AI systems and theory.
