ChatGPT. Microsoft's new Bing. Google's Bard.

Generative AI is here and there is no doubt that this technology is going to significantly disrupt many areas of life, for better or worse.

Even state and local governments, which have not traditionally been early adopters of innovation, are taking notice of the potential benefits generative AI can bring to their operations and delivery of services to constituents.

Author Vidhu Shekhar, an experienced leader in delivering digital transformation in the public sector, has curated a book exploring the numerous ways in which AI can be harnessed by government entities at the state and local levels. He joins Joe Morris on this episode of Government Technology's "In Case You Missed It" to discuss the main benefits of generative AI, current challenges, use cases and the key factors that will shape the trajectory of this technology.
