Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence

The project is the state's effort to accelerate the innovation and adoption of AI in Texas.

State IT Innovation of the Year

In December 2020, The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) formed the Texas Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence (AI-CoE) to accelerate the innovation and adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. This effort helps state and local governments and public institutions of higher education explore artificial intelligence technologies to foster digital transformation. The AI-CoE leverages the knowledge of DIR experts and key industry partners to develop AI skills in state agencies’ information technology leaders and has so far resulted in over 20 proof of concepts for AI, robotic process automation and chatbots.
