Artificial intelligence (AI) – the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines – is being used by a growing number of governments and public authorities.  

This Global Government Fintech webinar will seek to explore how central government departments worldwide are using AI to help with tasks related to public finances. More specifically, it will focus on how AI is helping public authorities save money, become more efficient and deliver better outcomes – from automating repetitive tasks to helping with spending allocation decisions and identifying fraud.  

The webinar will also seek to identify and explore areas where AI may have the greatest untapped potential for governments (related to public finances). 

Questions include:  

  • In which areas of service delivery (related to public finances) are AI solutions proving most useful, and how?  
  • What have governments learned about the opportunities, risks and challenges when using AI tools?  
  • How are governments handling concerns such as ‘algorithmic bias’?  
  • How can and should governments keep up to date on AI solutions?  
  • What are the biggest challenges with procuring and implementing AI solutions?
