The IBM Center for The Business of Government and IBM's A3 Center (IBM's Center for Analytics, AI, and Automation) recently hosted a special event with government leaders to present information about the role of AI.

The content discussed at the event was based on two studies that the Center for the Business of Government produced earlier this year.  Below we summarize the content from this discussion, with links to the audio and video files.
