Gov. Kevin Stitt gave his fifth State of the State speech at the Capitol on Feb. 6, 2023.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt is creating a task force on artificial intelligence.

Stitt says AI has the potential to revolutionize the way society works, and his task force will identify how it can be used to make government more efficient and improve education.

"The private sector is already finding ways to use it to increase efficiency," Stitt said. "Potential exists for the government to use AI to root out inefficiencies and duplicate regulations, and it is an essential piece of developing a workforce that can compete on a global level."

He says the task force will study, evaluate and develop policy as well as recommendations for the deployment of AI and generative AI by the end of the year.

The order creating the task force also calls on all state agencies to charge one person on their team to become experts in the field of artificial intelligence.
