The director of the California Department of Technology will have authority to hire a new advisor on the uses of artificial intelligence (AI) in state government if the governor approves a measure that earlier this week passed both houses of the Legislature. The new position will advise the department on "incorporating artificial intelligence into state information technology strategic plans, policies, standards, and enterprise architecture."
The California Department of Technology has scheduled its twice-yearly vendor forum to provide technology companies with information on how to partner with the state. The forum will be held on July 24 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at 1500 Capitol Avenue in Sacramento. Registration is required: https://cdt.ca.gov/events-calendar/
