  • Blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and augmented reality continues to create buzz throughout many industries and government is no exception. The US federal government budget for fiscal year 2020 calls on agencies to adopt emerging technologies to better empower their workforce, and accelerate and innovate public services.
