AI in Government
To make better, faster, accurate decisions
Governments are always looking for ways to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and save time. This is especially true in a world where governments must rapidly adapt to unforeseen challenges like the coronavirus pandemic.
One way to do this is through the use of artificial intelligence (AI). AI is a form of computer science that allows machines to learn, think and act like humans, in order to make decisions. AI-enabled machines can rapidly process vast amounts of data and make decisions in ways that humans could not.
For governments, this means that AI can be used to power automated processes, such as processing paperwork and data faster; analyzing sentiment and detecting patterns in communication; optimizing workflows; and helping to make faster, better decisions on policy and management.
There are many potential applications of AI for governments. AI-enabled chatbots, for example, can respond to citizens’ inquiries, direct them to the appropriate resources, or resolve problems with minimal delay. AI-enabled analytics systems can also be used to automate policy decision making by analyzing large volumes of data and making decisions based on the results. AI can also be used to automate processes like traffic violation detection and permit applications.
Combining AI with existing processes and technologies can help governments make better decisions and provide better services to their citizens. AI also has the potential to reduce costs and increase efficiency, as automated processes are often cheaper and more reliable than manual labor. Through the use of AI, governments could potentially make better decisions faster, keeping their citizens safe and their economies strong.
