NYC Artificial Intelligence Strategy

N. Parikh and A. Hohman

The NYC AI Strategy is a foundational effort to foster a healthy cross-sector AI ecosystem in New York City. The document establishes a baseline of information about AI to help ensure decision-makers are working from an accurate and shared understanding of the technology and the issues it presents, outlines key components and characteristics of the local AI ecosystem today, and frames a set of areas of opportunity for City action.

Establishing a clear understanding of what AI is, how it works, and what some of the key practical and ethical considerations are around its use is foundational to building a healthy AI ecosystem for New York City. The NYC AI Primer aims to help provide this foundation, primarily for an audience of technical, policy, or other decision-makers, not specific to NYC government. The AI Strategy contains the AI Primer as a supplement.

Note: This is intended as an archive of NYC government materials related to the NYC AI Strategy that may shift or move as part of the transition to the Adams administration.
