The Only Way is Digital for Our Government

Innovative technology is gaining momentum and driving a transformation of the public sector; slashing costs and upgrading services.

The Technology sector has joined forces with the UK Government to pledge an investment of nearly £1 billion, to develop new AI (artificial intelligence) technologies here in the UK. 

The AI Sector Deal, which has over 50 private sector participating businesses, will contribute £300 million, with another £300 million provided by the government. The remaining £400+ million will come from existing government grants.[1]

In 2017, Notting Hill Carnival saw the Metropolitan Police use AI to drive their facial recognition process and cross reference with other crime data to identify likely offenders. This is one example of an explosion in new technology across the public sphere with the next phase utilising technology to rethink, reshape and reinvent how the government works. The new model will include use of blockchain, machine-learning, drones, robotics and IoT, thus providing vital data in real-time.

How will the Networking and Communications Sector incorporate Drones?

Drone technology has the potential to increase UK GDP by £42 billion by 2030, according to new research from PwC.

The research estimates there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across UK skies by 2030. More than a third of these could be utilised by the public sector (including in areas such as defence, health and education).

There are significant opportunities for economic gains across all sectors, but the GDP uplift generated by drones is forecast to have a considerable impact on the public sector with an increase of 2.3%, amounting to around £11.4bn.
