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.

Bridging the Digital Skills Gap in the UK Public Sector

Back in 2013, Martha Lane Fox, the UK’s digital inclusion champion, believed that over 16 million people in the UK lacked the basic digital skills to fully benefit from the Internet.

The good news is that in the two years since, the UK has started to bridge the gap of the digital divide – but more than 12 million still fall short. The message is clear, the UK economy will begin to suffer as a whole if businesses, educational institutions and Government agencies don’t all work harder to close this digital skills gap.
