Artificial Intelligence (AI) at HHS

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are critical to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in accomplishing our mission to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans.

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) enables computer systems to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence.
  • Machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, gives computers the ability to learn without being programmed by humans.

Together with its partners in academia, industry and government, HHS will leverage AI and machine learning to solve previously unsolvable problems.

As we use AI to advance the health and wellbeing of the American people, we must ensure that our solutions are ethical, effective, and secure. The HHS Trustworthy AI (TAI) Playbook is an initial step by the Office of the Chief AI Officer (OCAIO) to support trustworthy AI development across HHS.
