BON Public Lecture

Integration, automation and achieving some level of intelligence in ICT systems is of cardinal importance to amass the benefits of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). This seminar explores the baseline concepts that need to be explored in designing contemporary systems in the era of the 4IR. The discussion is premised on the design and interpretation of contemporary e-Government systems that give promise to delivering public services anywhere and anytime. To achieve this, a specific aspect of emerging e-Government, namely the design of AI-Augmented government systems employing robotic process automation is explored. The seminar further explores the enlarged scope and spread of e-Government, including design of information architectures and smart cities. The session concludes with a focus on-going research and collaboration opportunities at the Center for Data Science, University of Johannesburg. The main premise of this public lecture is to explore emerging areas in e-Government from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
