As the fourth industrial revolution dawned on us, unprecedented advancements in terms of technology are helping the world to reshape in a more intuitive and integrated manner. While these technologies are remodelling the private sector, they do reverberate in the public sectors as well. Government institutions are widely incorporating these emerging technologies to reap their maximum benefits–digital equity, reduce costs, optimize workflows, invoke institutional agility, and improve outcomes for citizens and businesses.
Government institutions are currently focusing in augmenting their operations by embracing cognitive technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics. Authorities are responding AI as both users and regulators, and thereby helping to shape better societies. Moreover, they are leveraging unique digital identifiers that are opening the door to integrated data and a seamless experience for the citizens. They are also enabling dramatic leaps in service quality, efficiency gains, and subsequently propelling citizens towards a digital delivery model. Furthermore, these sophisticated technologies have allowed government institutions to use behavioural science to nudge citizens and simultaneously improve the government’s income. This has enabled them to generate better outcomes, cut down costs, and foster respect for the human autonomy.
Furthermore, adaptive security approach is helping the public sector to anticipates risks and mitigate them, thus bolstering security and building trust in an uncertain cyber threat environment. In fact, the adoption of digital citizen identity procedures by government has helped to prove any individual’s identity via any government authorised channel available to citizens. This plays a pivotal role for inclusion and access to government services. Besides, the government’s attempt to interact with the masses through multichannel is helping them stay connected with the citizens and help them meet their program outcomes.
