As Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology continues to advance and become an integral part of everyday business operations, it is increasingly important for the state to establish clear AI usage policies. This policy is designed to promote the acceptable use of AI tools, while also minimizing the potential for intentional or unintentional misuse, unethical outcomes, potential biases, use of sensitive data, and information security breaches. The AI-acceptable use policy addresses the use of artificial intelligence tools in government operations, especially as it pertains to using sensitive data and state information within these tools.
