15:10 - 16:30
Room 212, Shaw Centre

Should a government official knock at the woman's door to inform her that she could be at risk of pregnancy? Should governments set up automatic processes to efficiently calculate your care benefits? Or should government exploit the power of data analysis to detect potential fraud and corruption in public procurement? Algorithms are increasingly present in government services as new generation of AI services emerge. As algorithms emerge in new government settings, ethical and accountability dilemmas become evident. How should government use these new tools? What role will society play in these new setting? To what extent these evolution is going to be open and accountable to citizens? And to which extent should these new tools be informed by context and values different societies? We explore new research on AI readiness in 40 countries, a set of cases and consultations discussing the way forward.
