AI is coming, and the breathless news would have us believe it’s either the greatest thing to come or our worst nightmare. In a world where municipal and state government services are ever more digitally delivered or communicated, you have to make sense of AI so you can do your work.

Whatever form Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes, innovative public servants want to know what’s real, what to be wary of, and how to build trust with their stakeholders in and out of government. This series helps state and local public sector servants keep up with the expectations that private sector AI innovations create, while helping them build trust with and provide services to their constituents that match or exceed their expectations.

Join your peers and invited experts in this no-travel-needed, no-budgetary-approval-required series as we explore how we can keep a level head about AI and effectively work with it in municipal and state government.
