To explore these issues and to consider how AI might shape the public service of the future, we’re holding an event as part of Innovation Month.

The Computer Says Yes: what might be the future of artificial intelligence in the public service?” will be held from 11:00-12:30 on 21 July and will include:

The speakers will share their experience and thoughts on the opportunities and possibilities that AI might allow for the public service, followed by questions from the audience.
