No municipality can have a fully developed policy for technology that’s evolving as fast as AI, but every municipality can be prepared for how to navigate this path from procurement to reporting. In this session, municipal leaders will share both policy and technology perspectives on actionable steps for any community, regardless of how resourced it is, to map their own way forward for responsible AI exploration and use in municipal government.

​Key take-aways include:

  • AI is moving too rapidly to ignore, but rigid planning isn’t appropriate

  • Test, learn, and engage constituents and stakeholders as you go

  • Municipal AI roadmaps can support varying resource levels – it’s not all about fat budgets​

Whether you’re technologically inclined, policy focused, or into innovative service delivery, this session will help you have an idea of what AI could mean for your community and how to explore it without the hype or hysteria.
