Î¤he report recognises governments that are experimenting with emerging technologies to provide government services more efficiently, effectively and have proven results showing how they have created greater public value and transformed people’s lives. The report analysed and identified 29 Emerging Technologies, grouped in 9 categories that include technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Robotics & Space, Smart Platforms, amongst other.
‘The World GovTechioneers Race’ is an annual award designed to motivate government entities to promote creative smart government initiatives & partnerships with the aim of providing innovative smart solutions for common global challenges.
The technologies have been organised into fields or areas, resulting in nine general categories:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers
- Citizen Engagement & Analytics
- Cloud and High Performance Computing
- New Manufacturing
- Robotics & Space
- Smart Platforms
- Virtual World
For each technology there has been developed a description, including their added value, degree of innovation and level of maturity, as well as the impact their case studies could potentially have on society.
The case studies are evaluated based on the five evaluation criteria:
- Replicability & Scalability
The final technologies list (Graphic 1) was made up of the most cutting-edge technologies that can be applied in digital solutions used by public bodies.
The document, prepared by the United Arab Emirates e Prime Minister’ s Office in collaboration with Indra, represents an executive summary of the analysis findings, incorporating a brief description of the main Emerging Technologies where the selected cutting-edge digital technologies are introduced, followed by a number of examples of international case studies in which governments and public bodies have implemented these technologies.
