Westminster Insight’s half-day briefing will explore how AI can streamline your existing processes, drive organisational efficiency and improve customer experience.

This conference will review the implications of the AI Sector Deal, providing examples of how government, academia, and businesses are working in partnership to create digital solutions to enhance workplace experience, such as reducing wait times and improving efficiencies. Leading experts will explore the challenges and opportunities faced when developing and integrating AI into your organisation.

You will explore the skills needed for the workforce to embrace AI and how to work alongside them effectively, and the need to prevent digital exclusion across the organisation. The ability of AI to mimic human behaviours and patterns, the boundaries of surveillance capabilities, alongside many further issues will be covered in-depth. You will explore ethical developments and how regulatory frameworks can prevent predatory usage of AI, allaying fears about adoption.

Gain strategic insights from leading experts in a variety of fields including business, local government, research, and education, who will present case studies of how their organisations have effectively implemented AI into their workplaces and how they have partnered successfully with developers to create effective AI, producing measurable improvements in workplace efficiency.

Attend this forum to network with a variety of stakeholders and expert speakers on AI, exploring how to implement new alternatives to traditional processes and ensure your organisation is utilising AI technologies to its maximum benefit.
