Machine learning AI modernization

As we all know too well, eighty cents of every Federal IT dollar still supports legacy IT.  Agencies miss opportunities to innovate – and more.

We tend to think of international cyber attacks as a new phenomenon: threats only created by recent mass digitalization. But, in reality, they have been around since the Cold War. Back in 1982, the CIA accessed the control system for a Soviet gas pipeline and triggered a massive explosion. At the time, such events were known as ‘logic bombs’.

Kevin Cox is Jon Snow in the war against cyber threats–for the cyber night is here and full of terrors. And, winter isn’t coming–it’s already here. As Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) rounds out phases I and II, our government needs automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to hold back the ugly cyber hoards. AI, ML, and cloud are the dragons, dragon glass, and Valyrian steel that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs to combat the hacking white walkers. Okay, so how to separate fact from fairytale?

Federal agencies have a data problem. Data that was traditionally inside four walls is now everywhere. Employees and vendors access it from all kinds of devices, located in all kinds of places, making it increasingly challenging for security teams to see what those users are doing with that data.

Since reorganization is a perennial issue in the Federal government, one would expect substantial academic literature to exist on this matter, according to Alan Balutis. Almost nobody has asked the question: What difference have these reorganization plans and executive orders made? How have they been implemented and with what results?

Congress’ power of the purse, enunciated in Article I of the Constitution, is at the very heart of its authority and role in our democracy. That’s why I’m somewhat amused by all the concern, gnashing of teeth, press articles, and the like about President Trump’s recent release of his FY 2018 budget.
