Digital transformation continues to power government and the adoption of emerging technologies to deliver the mission. Agencies are using chatbots and artificial intelligence for more citizen-centric services. Digital natives in the workforce develop apps for Americans whose primary device is a cell phone. And, as the #1 target of hackers, government is exploring new advances such as blockchain to build trust and authentication.

This briefing will bring together agencies who are revolutionizing government services by tapping emerging technologies today.
