About the NISS/FCSM AI in Federal Government Series

The National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS) and the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology (FCSM) are collaborating on a series of webinars on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The initial webinar took place on October 31, 2023 on AI in Federal Government: Uses, Potential Applications, and Issues. This series aims to benefit federal practitioners and managers by providing behind-the-scenes information on uses of AI in federal agencies and from insights on how agencies meet organizational, managerial, and ethical challenges in harnessing the power of AI. Participation by researchers and managers in the webinars can help streamline current efforts to adopt AI and inspire new endeavors. The NISS/FCSM webinar series creates unique opportunities not easily available through other forums or venues. Thank you to the American Statistical Association (ASA), NORC at the Univesity of Chicago, & RTI International for sponsoring of the series.

About the Speakers

Kusuma Prabhakara, PhD, is a Geographer in the Geospatial Reference Data Branch (GRDB) within the Geography Division (GEO) at the U.S. Census Bureau.  She is the imagery lead on the Automated Change Detection Core (ACDC) project which aims to utilize moderate- and high-resolution imagery to focus on areas of detected change and use machine learning (ML) algorithms to extract building footprints for use in our Intelligence Database (ID). Prior to joining the Census Bureau, Kusuma was a Graduate Research Assistant for the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service Hydrology and Remote Sensing Lab (ARS-HRSL) working on remote sensing of winter cover crops. This research culminated in a PhD from the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park.
