Artificial Intelligence Is Here Series: Deciding When and How to use AI in Government


The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in government operations presents significant opportunities for the public sector, but also requires appropriate tools and regulatory frameworks to ensure AI systems are procured and used in a safe and responsible manner.

Join us for a fascinating presentation and moderated panel discussion that draw from actual case studies to identify lessons learned about the use of AI systems in governments. Topics will include:

  • the challenge of assessing risks for rapidly evolving, complex technology
  • the value of pilots and the need for agile regulatory frameworks
  • the importance of outcome-based metrics and auditing for fairness and safety
