A significant sector with direct influence on our lives is the role Government plays in terms of the services it offers to citizens and operations of the government.
In view of the penetration of a data-driven approach to all businesses, there is a clear need to adopt a data-driven approach to government services and operations. Hence the penetration of AI is a case of positive influence on Govt products and services.
Some key areas where government operations and services can benefit from AI include below not necessarily limited to these.
A. G2C service personalization –
Via detailed analytics and AI pattern extraction of citizens and persons, Government services for citizens can be highly personalized.
B. Data Driven Development interventions –
Given the access to a huge amount of data obtained by census etc. the government can perform AI based segmentation and plan on appropriate localized developmental interventions based on segments rather than one size fits all.
C. Getting Cost-Effective Infrastructure Management –
Governments typically work with tons and tons of equipment and physical infrastructure. A sensor deployment coupled with AI can help drive lower the cost of maintenance of these large infrastructures by bringing in data-driven preventive maintenance regimes.
D. Optimizing Agriculture Interventions –
Several use cases have been proposed by the use of AI in the context of agriculture. Governments can make use of AI for these agricultural initiatives like improving crop yields and localized land analytics.
E. Improve Quality of Transportation –
Use of AI-based techniques by the government to really transform transportation systems be it using driverless cars, or optimizing routes for delivery etc.
F. Smart Cities –
In the context of smart cities missions of governments, AI has a role to play in several initiatives be it smart traffic management, smart waste management, and smart building management in addition to smart utilities like grids.
G. Disaster Readiness and Management –
Using AI and intelligent sensors and GIS technologies there is a serious need to transform disaster response and management to a highly efficient one by making use of the data generated in real time.
H. Optimizing Government Financial Interventions –
By thorough analysis of data and algorithms government financial bodies like RBI can make a more informed choice of interest rates etc.
I. AI Powered Governance
I. Last but not the least Government Units and Ministries work performance can be monitored via real-time AI based governance dashboards powered by feedback systems which can provide inputs on how to improve work.
These are just some of the few ways in which AI can help e-governance and other government operations and services to citizens.
