INFORMS as an organization has a mission of elevating our members and our brand. As part of that goal, we work to educate policymakers about the value of operations research and analytics in decisions that they make that impact the American people. We have had great success in nurturing relationships in Washington and making a real difference. As of late, a big focus has been on artificial intelligence and some of INFORMS most prominent members are involved in the work.
On this episode, I’m pleased to welcome our incoming 2024 INFORMS president, Julie Swann,, our current president Laura Albert, and two past presidents, Radhika Kulkarni and Ramayya Krishnan, to discuss their recent meetings on Capitol Hill related to artificial intelligence.
Speaking with the members on Capitol Hill gave us the opportunity to talk about the ways in which our members can contribute to some of these important areas that are so critical for our country and the world. And so it was great to be able to explain to them the different ways in which our members have experience in creating systems that are valuable and useful in all kinds of domains.
