Artificial Intelligence

AI is vital to the process of social transformation. We are interested in solutions that relate to all sorts of areas of life and have an AI component or are connected to fields such as machine learning (ML) or process automation.

This is crucial in the post-COVID era. Our thinking on the topic is broad and we are looking for projects in areas including data security, application security, cloud security and identity protection.

Our primary focus in this field is on technologies which will serve local governments and residents, not only by supporting transport, energy, waste and water consumption management, but also by assisting with the digitisation of local administration.
