Demystifying Artificial Intelligence in Public Administration

On Tuesday, November 28, 2023, a demytifing seminar on Artificial intelligence in public addministration will be held from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The development of information technologies has led to an era in which we create, share and exchange increasing amounts of data. As the range of available data exceeds the capabilities of conventional, established computer systems to analyse them effectively, artificial intelligence and machine learning has become key to coping with this task.

This, in turn, brings new challenges and requirements, such as accuracy and reliability, complexity of data acquisition, transparency of predictive models, credibility of validation, protection of privacy and ethical issues.

Starting from two decades of practical experience in the use of artificial intelligence in various fields, the seminar will present what artificial intelligence is, and demonstrate through various examples some possibilities for its effective use. In doing so, we will point out some pitfalls that are too quickly caught by underexperienced developers who, under the influence of often excessive expectations and unrealistic demands of the environment, see artificial intelligence methods as a new “magical” technology.

The seminar will be held by prof. dr. Vili Podgorelec, Head of the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Maribor.
