Working as an Artificial Intelligence Advisor to the US Government

Industrial Problems Seminar

Mitchell Kinney (The MITRE Corporation)


Though Artificial Intelligence (AI) has progressed rapidly, many areas of government remain wary of upending legacy systems to capitalize on the technology. MITRE serves as a trusted advisor to government agencies and is a conduit between private industry and government through the management of multiple Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs). As a member of the AI and Autonomy Innovation Center, my role is to help government understand the potential positives and pitfalls of implementing AI technology.

I will discuss my background, my company, my responsibilities and give an overview of a project I worked on to help highlight how machine learning could be used to transfer paper-based systems engineering models into modern software. The prototype we developed uses computer vision techniques to build an internal graph representation of the diagram that can be translated to commercial tools.
