Microsoft is transforming the way of delivering government services with AI

Artificial Intelligence is creating a great stir across many industries today. AI itself has been around for decades, but in the last few years, we have seen a significant advancement of this technology. Many are concerned that it will take jobs away or ultimately harm the human race, while others are more supportive.

In the show today, J. Richard Jones talks with Jason Hermitage, Vice President, Public Sector for Microsoft Canada. Hear about the value of AI and what’s the future is like for it, how data and cloud are converging to make AI possible, using AI to help those with disabilities, AI capabilities that Microsoft currently has that can assist a public servant or department to make their work easier, ethics and principles around AI, and Microsoft’s investments in Canada for AI and Cloud.
