We are experiencing the ever-connected world at our fingertips; why should our experience as citizens interacting with government services be different? Governments are hearing and acting on this groundswell of demand, making Govtech a ripe and ready space for disruption. A shift in demographics and the need to do more with less means technology investments for new and improved government and civic services are estimated to be $400 billion globally over years to come. Countries like Singapore and Estonia are moving fast towards digital societies and thus blazing a path forward for us to see the possibilities.
This year we have created a special Govtech program to focus on the use of new technology in government and on improving services provided to/from citizens. I’m chairing the Govtech track at TiEcon, being held on Friday, May 5th starting at 10:30 am. Our team is thrilled to offer you a program that’s not only different from anything that we’ve offered at TiEcon before, but that addresses areas of innovation requiring government engagement that will impact us all: driverless vehicle traffic management, public service chatbots, real-time video analytics and more!
