About this event
Are automation and artificial intelligence core to the future of our health and public sector?
During the pandemic automation, or Robotic Process Automation (RPA), was deployed by many across local government and the NHS to automate the tsunami of new tasks related to covid testing and vaccinations. It’s reliability and efficiency has played a starring role and has much to bring to the sector as we move forward.

Meanwhile from intelligent automation to machine learning and artificial intelligence we are exploring new ways to visualise and use data to gain insight into the impacts of action – or inaction – on our world.

With the power to free time, release scarce resources and supercharge innovation, the question is, should these be specialist skills or embedded as foundational tools for the future of public services?

This event is free to attend for the public sector and accredited for five hours CPD.

Please register using your public sector email. Please note that registrations from personal email addresses may be rejected.
