This month’s virtual event will feature a special panel of state Chief Data Officers (CDO) from California, Arkansas, and North Dakota, moderated by the former CDO of Connecticut. It’s so surprise that the Federal Government is adopting AI. However it’s often less talked about how AI is being adopted at the state and local level. In this panel we’ll discuss how states are approaching technologies such as automation and advanced data analytics, as well as how AI play an increasing role in local government. Join us for this interactive discussion followed by Q&A.
