AI and E-governance have been a buzz ever since the United Nations called its members to integrate intelligent applications and to better their governance procedures to act more closely to the citizens for offering better services.
Fremont, CA: The UN aims to implement e-governance for helping the developing and the under-developed countries in saving the cost and time of the government as it can turn out to be the driving factor for better economic growth. AI and its sub-domain technologies possess the potential to improve the several existing structural inefficiencies to offer satisfied government functionalities. E-governance refers to the strategic alliance of intelligent systems to create a simple, moral, accountable, reasonable, responsive, and transparent environment that is comfortable and less costly for interacting between citizens, businesses, and government.
AI in e-governance can enhance a wide range of applications. Here are a few ways to show how technology advancements can modernize the apps in the existing system for the betterment of governance.
Automating routine tasks
Most of the government systems in developing and underdeveloped countries carry the paperwork as an integral part of their governance. Assigning, performing, and passing of the files between departments can be time-consuming and nerve-wracking at times if it is crucial for making important decisions. Therefore automating routine tasks lessen the paperwork and improve query response time.
Enforcing and regulating law is a primary function in any governance architecture. Embedding AI systems can augment and automate the existing functionalities, for a better implication of law and order. Law enforcement, including speech recognition, facial recognition, drones, autonomous proto cars, robocops, predictive analytics, and cyber defense is rising and providing delve knowledge about the law violations taking place in the modern world. These systems are helping in enclosing and solving issues in less time.
Renovating privacy and security mechanism
Information about the public, government officials, businesses, and so on that the government holds needs to be secured and protected from fraud committers to avoid malfunctions of private information. Integrating AI systems can help in automating and securing information via embedding machine learning algorithms that detect disruptions in the digital database and secure the data from cybercriminals.
Rapid disaster response
Governments responding and enacting during emergencies could be delayed due to their internal structural hierarchical procedures. With predictive analytics and AI automated systems, the government can forecast the weather and other parameters that help in taking a prior action.
