HHS/OS RIN: 0991-AC20 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Proposed Regulatory Clean Up Initiative 
Abstract:

HHS proposes to correct citations, remove erroneous language, or correct misspellings and other typographical errors in response to findings from an Artificial Intelligence (AI) project.  HHS piloted a new method of regulatory analysis, using an AI-driven tool that analyzed HHS’s regulations using Natural Language Processing (NLP). This NLP analysis is designed to accelerate and augment expert review, allowing HHS Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to focus on areas of opportunity for modernization.  The NLP analysis revealed numerous reform opportunities, including instances where a regulation citation is now incorrect.
