How Machine Learning Insights Can Improve the Resident Experience (with Govtech.com)

The power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning has been proven across industries. In government, AI has the potential to not only increase productivity but to deliver better experiences to residents.

Join experts from Government Technology and Granicus as we explore how AI can benefit government organizations in a wide variety of ways, including providing predictive models for more effective communications that better connect and engage residents on important topics like the COVID-19 vaccine.

We’ll discuss:
– How AI can help government organizations manage, monitor and improve communications around critical events
– How machine learning can help guide organizations in creating more effective communications based on audience needs and preferences
– What you need to know about AI and what to look for in an AI partner
