AI Use Case

Optimise public policy decisions to take into account a greater set of complex interactions

Optimise public policy decisions (e.g., housing) to take into account greater set of complex interactions. AI can be especially useful in modelling some of the potential second or third order effects of decisions but clear analyst question formulation will be key. This requires manipulating multiple data sources to help define decision-making options, and recommend preferential outcomes. This is an area increasingly being investigated by defence and security state-level actors and is therefore often relatively opaque in terms of detailed information.
