Short Stops from ATON Computing – Something to Think About for Municipal Officials

Traditional IT has to make way for AI (summarized from InformationWeek)

The efficiencies that were realized in the transition that was made from a paper-based government operation to a computer-based information technology environment will be realized again with the transition to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI is “the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.” It will be a reliance on productivity that can collect, interpret, and utilize data at a scale beyond human ability.

It is recommended that if there are funds remaining in a current IT budget, it is time to begin to direct those funds to AI.
