This new Digital Leaders Conference is tackling three of the big opportunities for Public Services being: GovTech, AI and Innovation. We have split the day into three, giving all three topics space to develop discussion at a policy, delivery and expert level.
Innovation will be taken at the cross-government programme level, looking at ways to help create innovation in public services working inside out across central and local government, but engaging with private sector businesses.
AI The Office for AI – a joint team between DCMS and BEIS – has been set up to drive forward work on the Grand Challenge on AI and Data articulated in the Industrial Strategy and AI Sector Deal, which includes – alongside increasing skills provision and access to good quality data for AI – driving adoption across all sectors. The Office for AI hopes to raise awareness of the transformative potential of AI across Government to drive adoption and remain at the forefront of the AI and data revolution.
GovTech Catalyst is the concept of encouraging small, emerging technology businesses, to bring innovative solutions to public service challenges in a formal process using a £20 million fund to facilitate the public sector engaging and creating solutions.
