Dave Levy, vice president of worldwide public sector at Amazon Web Services, said there are four areas where generative artificial intelligence could benefit public sector organizations and the first is the capability of large language models and other generative AI tools to process and analyze large volumes of data, enabling agencies to glean insights and make informed decisions.
Levy, a four-time Wash100 awardee, wrote in an article published Wednesday on Forbes that generative AI could help agencies optimize resource allocation through analysis of historical data and demand patterns.
He noted that the technology could accelerate scientific discoveries by enabling researchers to quickly find information and by serving as an idea generator.
“In the medical field, this could ultimately support faster drug discovery, more accurate disease detection and efficient treatment,” he added.
The AWS executive cited how generative AI could help agencies deliver personalized services to citizens and improve productivity.
“As generative AI continues to advance, it’s crucial for the public sector to foster the safe, responsible and effective deployment of AI by establishing and implementing the necessary safeguards to protect citizens,” Levy wrote.
