AI holds great promise for many industries that have the potential to impact VA directly. Health care stakeholders are hopeful that AI can improve the way patients are managed across the care continuum, how clinical data is used, and how treatment decisions are made. Trends in cloud computing may benefit organizations such as VA that own large, unique data sets. AI in cybersecurity, quality assurance, and other fields will also impact VA and care provided to Veterans.

Along with the opportunities for beneficial AI, there are challenges associated with AI research and implementation. NAII is at the forefront of advancing trustworthy AI – AI that is ethical, free from potential bias, and protects privacy. NAII is working with national and international policymakers to develop policies that enable the benefits of AI and mitigate the potential risks.
