The future of AI in public services
AI has the potential to automate repetitive tasks and enhance efficiency in our public services. Using insights from Ipsos research and an interview with Dr. Jonathan Bright from The Alan Turing Institute, Daniel Cameron and Reema Patel identify different types of AI technology and their applications in the public sector. However, they also explore the challenges such as bias, lack of transparency, data privacy, and the broader social impacts facing the use of AI in this capacity.
