Artificial Intelligence

AI is present in many of our daily activities, not just in the ways we imagine. Its evolution has only just begun and there is still a long way to go. That is why it is important to know what are the possibilities and risks of its development and use in the field of public policy.the public sector makes increasing use of AI-based technologies to deliver essential services and carry out a variety of tasks. Technologies that provide information to citizens, optimise resource allocation, streamline government procedures and support officials in decision-making. In short, they are a key tool for improving public management. However, the use of AI presents risks: biases, hallucinations, misleading or false information … . It is essential that governments design strategies that encourage the implementation and use of these technologies, while incorporating the necessary ethical standards to minimise their unintended effects. They must adopt regulatory and evaluation strategies to protect citizens from the potential risks associated with their implementation. In addition to being a technological issue, AI is a political issue. As such, it must be thought out, discussed and decided upon in order to serve as an instrument of greater well-being for society. It is a matter of defining a strategy to use it consciously and with care for its potential adverse effects.
