VA’s ASPIRE Program is Improving Data Literacy

The cross-government training program aims to improve core competencies needed for the evolving digital and technology landscape.

Data literacy is a critical component in the digital age for enabling the workforce to harness data’s power. The Department of Veterans Affairs is leveraging a new automated training platform called the All Services Personnel and Institutional Readiness Engine (ASPIRE) to improve competencies for emerging technologies, especially AI and cyber. This interagency effort ensures the overall federal workforce is qualified and capable of meeting their missions as emerging technologies continue to scale. Anthony Boese from VA’s National Artificial Intelligence Institute (NAII), whose educational roots are in philosophy, understands the power of AI and the urgent need to get a handle on data. He explains the program’s development, progress and next steps for the federal community.
