Register now for the second instalment of the Digital Leaders Public Sector Innovation Conference.
We have split the day into three themes with space to develop discussion at a policy, delivery and expert level:
Firstly we will hear from the Office for AI and discuss how we can utilise AI across the whole of society – with transformation across Government as a key part of this. The Office for AI has worked with the World Economic Forum to co-design AI Procurement Guidelines for the public sector. The Guidelines aim to drive more responsible and more efficient, innovative procurement of AI systems. This feeds into a new dynamic AI marketplace to launch in Autumn 2020.
Upskilling the workforce within and outside of Government to be AI experts and intelligent customers is also critical. GDS and ONS are working together on a data science skills audit tp understand the strengths and weaknesses in data science and AI across government.
The Office for AI is maximising high-calibre capacity with initiatives throughout the skills and education pipeline to support and drive economic growth. Skills are an important area for the independent AI Council, who advises the Office for AI and the rest of Government on matters relating to AI.
The next theme is innovation in Central Government departments, where, looking back since the last conference, there have been lots of great progress made by a wide variety of organisations often collaborating across sectors improving, for example, NHS productivity through digital transformation.
