|A more intelligent way to provide public services|
Minister for Implementation Oliver Dowden sets out plans for how new technologies like AI can revolutionise public services.
In a speech at the start of London Tech Week, the Minister launched a new guide to help government embrace AI and an online marketplace to support tech start-ups sell to the public sector. These measures accompany a new Technology Innovation Strategy, setting out the government’s approach to enabling widespread adoption of new technologies across the public sector.
The new AI Guide will be used across government to help departments implement new opportunities for AI, such as how to make cancer diagnosis more reliable and reduce fraud, in an ethical & safe way. The guide also brings together, for the first time, research on how artificial intelligence is already being used by the public sector to save money and improve services.
Tech start-ups will also see a boost to their ability to win government contracts through the launch of Spark, a new online marketplace that provides a route into the public sector for companies offering innovative technologies.
