We are excited about the future of technology in local government! Smart street lights, connected public spaces, beacon based community interaction, municipal mesh networks, responsive chatbot messaging, driverless cars, blockchain-based solar collectives, open data set driven local start-ups, connected seniors and youth, RFID chipped rubbish bins, machine learning and cognitive computing, licence plate recognition, smart parking - the list goes on and on!
Responsible for 80% of the public infrastructure in Australia, councils are on the forefront of use cases for the explosion of technology happening around us. Unfortunately, your average local government software solution struggles to support adoption of these new technologies. Not ours.
