Unveiling a Gateway to Higher-Quality Public Services

The Public Sector Data Science Summit will take place on the 5th December 2018 at Victoria Park Plaza, London.

The conference will bring 300+ senior digital leaders together from government, local authorities and the NHS to understand how data analytics, automation and AI can contribute, positively, to public sector reform.

What is Data Science in the Public Sector?

With the public sector striving to do more with less, it is crucial that efficiency is placed at the forefront of reforms. Data analytics, automation, AI and Machine Learning can help deliver better public services, improve transparency, reduce costs and enhance customer service.

It has been estimated that AI could add an additional £630bn to the UK economy by 2035.

Join digital leaders from across the public sector to understand the possibilities that lie undiscovered within their data and increase efficiency in services.
