Automation & Bots4Good

Time: 11:00-12:30 via Teams Live

Unlocking data and processes with AI and automation

Can the latest AI powered automation tools deliver a step change in efficiency and empower health and public sector workers?

Join us LIVE over two 90-minute sessions (11:00-12:30) over three mornings to explore the potential – alongside any potential risks from AI (hallucinations etc) and how these can be contained to the benefit of public service delivery and efficiency.

More than 200 digital decision makers and leaders from public sector organisations took part last year. And this time  the focus is again on sharing knowledge, best practice and inspiring innovation. It will bring together public sector leaders to showcase what can be achieved with the opportunity for discussion and Q&A sessions too.
