Data has tremendous potential to build resilience in government. To realize this potential, we need a new, human-centred, distinctly public sector approach to data science and AI, in which these technologies do not just automate or turbocharge what humans can already do well, but rather do things that people cannot.

Professor Ben MacArthur has recently published a paper on data science for government, with Turing colleagues Helen Margetts and Cosmina Dorobantu.
