The National Association of Counties (NACo) announced the formation of an Artificial Intelligence Exploratory Committee on May 24 that will examine emerging policies, practices and potential applications and consequences of AI. The 15-member committee will be led by Travis County Judge Andy Brown and Palm Beach County, Florida, Commissioner Gregg Weiss and includes Peter Crary, the Texas Association of Counties' senior manager of technology.

"AI can play an important role in achieving our priorities in counties nationwide," Brown said in a NACo press release. "This exploratory committee will help us maximize opportunities and minimize risks as we leverage this technology to benefit our residents."

The committee will meet at NACo's Annual Conference and Exposition in Austin on July 22, with plans to meet both in person and virtually as work progresses.
