Artificial Intelligence and the Public Sector

IPAA presents 'Artificial Intelligence and the Public Sector: Progress, Possibilities and Perils'

Participants will hear from leading Artificial Intelligence thinkers and practitioners, who will share their knowledge of the current state of AI developments (drawing from the public and private sectors) and debate the potential and challenges of AI in improving government outcomes. This event will rise above the AI-hype and ask the hard questions about what it might mean for the future of government policy and services.
