Event description

Description

How can Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, chatbots and Robotic Process Automation be harnessed by the public sector for the public good?

This event is free to attend for the public sector
You must provide a public sector email address to register

Following on from the sell-out success of June’s UKAuthority ‘Rise of the Bots’, and in response to both audience demand and the rapid pace of technology change, UKAuthority will be hosting ‘Return of the Bots’ on 14th November 2017 in central London.

NHS, local and central government and other public services will take to the stage to share their ambitions and progress with innovating and redesigning service delivery using these technologies. We will also invite leading technology companies to partner with us and outline how their technology has helped to transform, inform decision making, interact with citizens, drive efficiencies and help create better public services.

We will look to explore further the starting points for those just setting out on this transformation journey and the ethical issues in implementing these tools, whilst looking to the far horizon at what may be coming next in this technology revolution.

Key questions this event will explore include:

  • When it is appropriate to leave a process to a machine and where is human intervention necessary?
  • How do digital leaders engage the organisation, from top to bottom, in this journey?
  • Is there more than efficiency value in 24/7, always on, always accurate robotic processes?
  • Where can AI impact most in supporting decision making?
  • How do we ensure that bias is excluded from the system?
  • How can councils simplify, standardise and share – both in terms of the technology and the skills required?

Who should attend?

Heads and Seniors of Digital, Customer Services, Transformation or Change, Chief Information Officers, Heads of IT, Assistant Chief Executives, Business Managers, Heads of Finance, Heads of HR Heads of Social Care and Departmental Service Heads/Senior Managers
