At least thrice has the Government updated its AI solutions in recent months, as per recent statements from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Within its standard technology arsenal, the Department of Homeland Security continues to introduce new AI applications.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, responsible for overseeing the nation’s immigration application process, disclosed this week that they are utilizing AI for various purposes, including an AI-driven “evidence classifier,” a fraud detection system, and a workload forecasting tool. These tools were not previously mentioned, as per an archived version of the website saved by the Wayback System.

The recently unveiled AI systems highlight the ongoing advancement of AI products despite the new executive order on these systems and subsequent guidance from the Office of Management and Budget. They also exemplify how AI is presently leveraged by authorities to impact multiculturalism in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security has notably expanded its inventory at least three times in recent months with the inclusion of these applications. Compliance with a 2020 Trump executive order mandates these updates, as per instructions from the national Chief Information Officers Council and the latest draft OMB memo.

USCIS did not respond to several requests for comment.

The AI tools indicate that the data classification mechanism utilizes machine learning to expedite the identification of labeled pages within an application. For instance, it seems that the application has already been disclosed by DHS on a website managed by the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council.

Additionally, an updated inventory mentions a time series analysis and prediction tool enhanced with a machine learning model. This tool aids in predicting various immigration application types and associated workloads.

The inventory also introduces a revamped USCIS fraud detection directorate that now incorporates machine learning and artificial intelligence to facilitate analytical tasks, enhance case investigation prioritization, and detect duplicate case work. The technology, as per the inventory, may eventually support predictive modeling for “future program enhancements.”

Technology groups express opposition to the Biden AI executive order, expressing concerns about potential innovation constraints.

The 111-page Directive, representing a significant governmental effort to regulate, has faced substantial criticism from NetChoice, the Chamber of Commerce, and SIIA.
