Ready for Prime Time? State Governments Tune in to Artificial Intelligence

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, we are seeing state governments and state CIOs turning to AI for a broad host of applications. This publication discusses the definitions around artificial intelligence (AI), as well as the challenges, opportunities and applications for state governments. The report also lays out several examples of how states are using AI, along with considerations for its development and implementation. From their role as change managers, to involvement in procurement, the publication also outlines the implications for state CIOs.

Digital Transformation in Government: The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (webinar)
During this session with NASCIO, a team from Illinois will share their Blockchain experiences and best practices to date including regulatory, industry, technology maturity and potential public sector usage of this emerging technology. They will also drill down on progress to date as the state has embarked upon a series of 5 proof of concept use cases for Blockchain.
 
The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (IBI) was launched earlier this year. The goal of the initiative is to determine if this groundbreaking technology can be leveraged to create more efficient, integrated and trusted state services, while providing a welcoming environment for the Blockchain community. 
 
Blockchain and distributed ledger technology has the potential to transform the delivery of public and private services, redefine the relationship between government and the citizen in terms of data sharing, transparency and trust, and make a leading contribution to the State’s digital transformation.

Blockchains: Moving Digital Government Forward in the States

This brief will open the discussion about blockchains and the potential impact on state government.  We won’t delve into the mechanics of blockchains, nor the potential for proliferation of new “e-currencies.”  We want to open the door to the world of blockchains through a variety of conversations with leaders in state government and industry in order to begin discussions regarding where blockchain technology can serve the mission of state government.

Value and Vulnerability: The Internet of Things in a Connected State Government
States are finding that the “Internet of Things” (IoT) can improve efficiency, reduce waste and connect citizens to state services in faster and more affordable ways. But with that value comes vulnerability. States must consider security, privacy, accessibility and standardization when crafting a roadmap for IoT. This policy brief describes ways that states are currently implementing IoT, possibilities for the coming years, and recommendations on avoiding difficulties along the way.

2015 State CIO Survey: The Value Equation
NASCIO, Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA have collaborated for a sixth consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. The survey sponsors seek to provide these state government IT leaders with an opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions on matters of high importance. Governors, legislatures and business leaders can benefit from these knowledgeable insights about essential state IT services. As highlighted in the survey results, the state IT and business landscape continues to change, reflecting both emerging approaches to delivering IT products and services, and also the faster paced, more complex environment faced by state CIOs. We asked state CIOs to share their perspective on a number of topics, with a particular focus on the emerging role of the CIO as a broker of shared services, and on the use of incremental software development approaches to accelerate the delivery of value to customers. These topics share a common theme – customer expectations continue to rise, and state CIOs must be agile enough to adapt to changing circumstances and to rapidly deliver business value. State CIOs also shared their thoughts on the leadership attributes they perceive as most valuable for a state CIO, and which dimensions of the role were most critical for success. Cybersecurity , cloud services, mobility, broadband and IT procurement represent other high priority topics covered in the survey report.

Is State IT Working on the Right Things?
What does it mean to be working on the right things? This determination is often difficult when considering the state as both an enterprise and a collective of individual agencies. Through interviews and formal surveys, NASCIO and Infosys Public Services gained insight from state IT leaders on the fundamental processes, mechanisms and criteria necessary to ensure that state IT is working on the right things. The resulting report will help state IT decision makers understand the key factors needed to identify the right things to do, see how they and their peer states stand against these factors and what can be done to bridge the gap.
