Unlocking the power of data and AI in the public sector

The fundamental role and importance of data to improving public services has long been recognised but issues remain around the quality of data, standards for integration, information governance and how best to explore data to deliver valuable insights on people, places and organisations. Technology and best practice continues to evolve but despite the success of data sharing in response to Covid there remain challenges in the development of skills and confidence in data use – not least with public perceptions and trust in the proper use of personal information.

Join us at this virtual conference as we explore how to best unlock the power of data and AI across the health and public sector for the public good. It will bring together public sector leaders to share examples of what can be achieved with the opportunity for discussion and Q&A sessions too.
