Advancing New and Emerging Technologies in Government
GovTech 2021 invites data and technology pioneers to explore the challenges and successes of implementing new and emerging technologies in the public sector. Tech trailblazers and government officials will come together virtually on 12th October 2021 to share knowledge and bridge the gap between policy and cutting-edge technology.
AI Driven Organisations
AI has a brilliant capacity for enhancing data-driven decision-making and generating worthwhile insights. For public sector organizations, it’s worth finding a place for AI within the organization’s agenda. It’s good to focus on the interaction between humans and machines to discover what AI can solve for specific processes.
For example, the NHS currently uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help put doctors back on the front line rather than performing back-office administration. The referral process is automated, which helps to speed up triage functions and calculate reimbursement.
Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Intelligent System Interfaces
You’ve probably experienced issues with software in the past where interfaces aren’t up to scratch and instead of making your job easier, they’ve made it more difficult. An emerging trend for public sector organizations is an increased focus on the use of intelligent interfaces.
Things like natural language processing (NLP), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), auditory analytics, and intelligent search facilities improve system interfaces. They can take a run-of-the-mill software and transform it into something increasingly successful and universally accessible.
Enhanced Connectivity & 5G
Enhanced connectivity means advanced networking – services such as 5G, ultra-broadband, and edge computing. These advancements in connectivity can transform the public sector by enabling a more intelligent, easier digital journey for organizations and citizens alike.
WM5G in the West Midlands is a great example of this in action, implementing a 5G network for local authorities in the area. They’ve been working with healthcare in the area, from University Hospitals Birmingham to ambulance services to provide new functions such as remote monitoring of a patient’s vital signals, connected ambulances, and wireless data connection to monitor implants.
