Governor Establishes State Artificial Intelligence Task Force

Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 346, establishing an Artificial Intelligence Task Force charged with studying emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. The Task Force will be responsible for analyzing the potential impacts of AI on society as well as preparing recommendations to identify government actions encouraging the ethical use of AI technologies.

With the potential for AI to be transformative across public and private sectors, the Task Force will work to ensure that the State's use of AI is fair, accessible, and beneficial to all New Jerseyans. 

The Task Force will consist of various state departments and the Governor may appoint additional members. The Task Force will consult with industry leaders, academic experts, consumer advocates, and government innovators to build out its recommendations.  

The Office of Information Technology will evaluate tools and strategies to improve government services through artificial intelligence.  

The Co-Chairs will issue a report with the Task Force’s findings and recommendations to the Governor. The report must be made available to the Legislature and the public at the same time. 

The League will monitor the Task Force’s work and report items of interest.
