On 7 November 2023, from 14:00 to 15:30 CET, the Policy Learning Platform is hosting a webinar on the topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for local authorities and policymakers

Artificial Intelligence...

has a transformative power over the way we live and work. It has a growing impact on local authorities too as AI can be used to help them automate tasks, improve decision-making, and enhance citizen engagement.

For example, it can be used to create chatbots or virtual assistants that can answer citizen queries, provide information, and even help citizens complete tasks online.

Regarding decision-making, AI algorithms can be used to analyse large amounts of data quickly and accurately. This can help local governments make more informed decisions about issues such as traffic management, waste management, and public safety.

In this webinar, we will explore the benefits of AI for local authorities and how it can be implemented effectively. In addition, we will discuss the latest milestones at the European level towards a legal framework for AI.
