Many believe AI will advance government; changing the speed, reliability, and ability for agencies to make more informed decisions and better deliver on their missions. Integral to leveraging the power of AI is data which floods many agencies yet is often underutilized or even locked up due to lack of resources, knowledge of tools, and compliance.
Fortunately, cloud-based analytics capabilities allow these datasets to be turned into knowledge that can empower agencies to take advantage of AI capabilities that can help agencies make more informed decisions, drive efficiency and become more citizen friendly.
With this in mind, we invite you to join the Microsoft Azure Government user community on Wednesday, April 25, 6 – 8:30 p.m., for an evening of presentations, demos and discussion on some of the hottest topics in government today – AI and Analytics – at 1776 in Washington, DC.
During this Meetup, you will get insight and learn from industry-leading experts who will share:
· Best practices and challenges for government with AI and Analytics
· How government is using AI today and vision of the future
· Top AI and Analytics solutions along with exciting demos
