About

AI4PublicPolicy

Project Coordinated by GFT Italy S.R.L.

AI4PublicPolicy is a joint effort of policymakers and Cloud/AI experts to unveil AI’s potential for automated, transparent and citizen centric development of public policies. To this end, the project will deliver, validate, demonstrate and promote a novel Open Cloud platform for automated, scalable, transparent and citizen-centric policy management based on unique AI technologies.

EGI Foundation role in the project:

EGI Foundation is leading the task which provide technologies to allocate cloud and HPC resources based on the policy under-development, which will be dynamically updated during runtime based on emerging situations (e.g. through a local event that triggers the generation of additional datasets) and the task which will integrate information, content and demonstrators about the project’s outcomes to the on-line portal of the market platform. The task will integrate all the exploitable assets of the project in the market platform.

Expected results:

The project will deliver, validate, demonstrate and promote a novel Open Cloud platform (i.e. AI4PublicPolicy platform) for automated, scalable, transparent and citizen-centric policy management based on unique AI technologies. The AI4PublicPolicy platform will be an Open Virtualized Policy Management Environment (VPME) that will provide fully-fledged policy development/management functionalities based on AI technologies such as Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), NLP and chatbots while leveraging citizens’ participation and feedback. It will support the entire policy development lifecycle, based on technologies for the extraction, simulation, evaluation and optimization of interoperable and reusable public policies, with emphasis on citizen-centric policies development and optimization through the realisation of citizen-oriented feedback loops. AI4PublicPolicy will complement public policy development functionalities with the ever-important process reengineering and organisation transformation activities towards ensuring the effective transition from legacy policy development models to emerging AI-based policymaking.

Relevance for EGI:

The AI4PublicPolicy VPME will be integrated with EOSC with a dual objective. First to facilitate access to the Cloud and HPC resources of EOSC/EGI that are required to enable the project’s AI tools, and second to boost the sustainability and wider use of the project’s developments.
