U.S. Government Agencies to Use AI to Cull, Cut Outdated Regulations

Reuters,  David Shepardson

October 16, 202    The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said federal agencies will use artificial intelligence (AI) to remove outdated, obsolete, and inconsistent requirements across government regulations. A 2019 pilot employing machine learning algorithms and natural-language processing at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services turned up hundreds of technical errors and outdated mandates in agency rulebooks. The White House said agencies will utilize AI and other software "to comb through thousands and thousands of regulatory code pages to look for places where code can be updated, reconciled, and generally scrubbed of technical mistakes." According to OMB director Russell Vought, the initiative would help agencies "update a regulatory code marked by decades of neglect and lack of reform." Participating agencies include the departments of Transportation, Agriculture, Labor, and the Interior.
