SUMMARY

This report on AI in the public sector explains that when it comes to AI adoption the public sector has trailed behind the private sector although governments are trying to quickly catch up. 

The OECD identified 50 countries that have launched or are planning to present national AI strategies which include a few common topics such as economic development, trust and ethics, and security. 36 of them have either separate strategies in place for public sector AI, or a dedicated focus embedded within a wider strategy, which is extremely important because it allows AI to be integrated into the complete policy-making and service design process, the document explains.

According to the research, many governments have launched projects that use AI to improve efficiency and decision making, promote positive relationships with people and companies, help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and solve problems in key fields including health, transportation, and security. 

This white paper indicated that the public administration should generally determine if AI is the best solution for a specific problem through an analysis of alternatives and trade-offs - based on a deep understanding of users’ needs.
