S&T is committed to providing the best scientific, R&D, and test and evaluation support to find innovative and cutting-edge technology for our DHS partners. One such resource is DHS’s work with In-Q-Tel (IQT). IQT is the independent, non-profit strategic investor for the CIA and the broader U.S. Intelligence Community – including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Washington, D.C. - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is announcing its first ever strategic framework on the implementation and responsible integration of Artificial Intelligence in the domestic security apparatus. The Strategy was developed in response to the Trump Administration’s Executive Order 13690 Principles for the Use of Artificial Intelligence in Government. The plan emphasizes the principles necessary to maintain America’s competitive technological edge while balancing the Constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties of all Americans.
