The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced the appointment of an officer overseeing the use of artificial intelligence (AI), becoming the latest agency to create the role called for in a President Joe Biden executive order.

Sivaram Ghorakavi was named the agency’s deputy chief information officer and will also serve as chief AI officer, the EEOC announced Monday. In his latter role, he will coordinate intradepartmental and cross-agency efforts on AI and adjacent issues.

As information chief, Ghorakavi will lead EEOC innovations in technology that benefit the agency’s strategic mission.

“The success of this role depends on helping people understand both the benefits and risks of using technology, including AI, to ensure it is used in the right places at the right time and in the right amounts to enhance EEOC’s ability to operate effectively and to enforce key workplace protections,” he said in a press release.

While companies grapple with safe use of AI, U.S. government agencies are doing the same. In February, the Department of Justice established its first chief AI officer role, followed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in May.

The appointments are in line with Biden’s executive order on the safe, secure, and trustworthy development and use of AI, which was released in October. The order directed government agencies to issue standards and guidance regarding AI systems, among other requirements.

Prior to joining the EEOC, Ghorakavi worked with the National Labor and Relations Board as chief architect and chief data strategist. He also served as an information technology portfolio manager at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
