10 November, 2020

Iskra Yovkova from Innovative Sofia presented Policy Cloud in the Parallel Session on Smart Government: Co-Creating Services with the use of AI and Data at the EBDVF2020 on Thursday, 5 November. By the invitation from the organizers, she took part in the forum as the R&D Coordinator of the project on behalf of Sofia Municipality. She presented Policy Cloud’s use case of urban policymaking through analysis of crowdsourced data:

The session showcased examples of Smart Government initiatives across Europe that integrate AI, Digital Twins and Big Data solutions. Among the objectives of the discussion was to identify a possible input for a shared policy brief with recommendations on the gaps discovered in the session.

‘We want to improve the urban environment: transport, waste collection, air quality, parking, and public order, using Policy Cloud’s tools with different sources of data. By using PolicyCloud’s tools, cities will be able to adopt, assess, and make adequate decisions about their policies. Public administrations will be able to better spend and distribute resources’, Iskra Yovkova said during the panel.
