Governments around the world are examining the potential to use technologies like artificial intelligence and automation to speed up the delivery of public services by reducing the need for staff to undertake repetitive tasks to both improve service delivery and reduce costs.

However, implementation of such new technologies is often difficult in government, where introducing changes to existing systems or getting funding for capital investment can often be difficult.

This session will look at both real life examples of where government departments and agencies have used automation and AI to unlock improvements in public services, and how they did it.

Join this session to find out:

  • Where in government automation and AI can be used – from automating tasks to analysing data
  • The advantages and challenges to implementing automation and AI in government
  • Examples of how government has implemented AI and the benefits of use
