Montgomery, AL / USA - August 27, 2020: Alabama State Capitol building in Montgomery Alabama

Last month, Governor Kay Ivey signed Executive Order 738 to create a task force to recommend policies for the responsible and effective use of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) in state executive-branch agencies.

“The state of Alabama is a pioneer in the development and use of advanced technologies, from manufacturing nanotechnology to empowering mankind to walk on the moon,” said Governor Ivey. “In that innovative spirit, GenAI represents a monumental step forward in the potential for our state government to serve the public. However, its capabilities must first be studied carefully to ensure it is implemented in the most responsible and efficient manner possible.

“To accomplish this important goal, I am pleased to sign this executive order creating a task force to both investigate the current uses of GenAI in state executive-branch agencies and to recommend policies to responsibly harness its full potential to best benefit Alabamians.”

Executive Order 738 establishes the Governor’s Task Force on Generative Artificial Intelligence, with its members appointed by the governor. It will consist of seven cabinet members, two representatives from Alabama higher education, and four legislators, including two state representatives and two state senators.

Culverhouse’s Dr. Matthew Hudnall will serve as one of the two Alabama higher education representatives.
