Smart Tools for Governments

Consensus AI uses the newest proven technologies to make governments more efficient, increase understanding between governments and citizens, and between citizens and each other.

Using signals gathered from citizens, either actively and passively, combined with available data sets, Consensus AI helps governments understand their citizens at a much deeper level.

This deep connection allows for very tight feedback cycles, a constant finger on the pulse of citizens as feelings and attitudes evolve, and predictive analytics to help governments understand where sentiment is headed.

Making eGovernance a Reality

As governments at all levels around the world make the transition to electronic services, moving services online, and ultimately rolling out eIDs to simplify government-citizen interaction, it’s imperative governments use this transition to introduce modern tools for collaborative engagement between electorate and elected.

The world is getting increasingly complex, major decisions can no longer be boiled down to ‘yes’ or ‘no’. New tools are needed to dig into issues with data driven analysis so that representative bodies can confidently do what’s best for their citizens.

Digital Innovation Through Trust

Governments who have taken steps towards a digital transition are ideal partners as this is the perfect time introduce new tools for governance and new efficiencies from top to bottom. For countries or regions with an eID program in place the Consensus AI platform is largely turnkey.

We realize as a global society we are in the early stages of this transition, but if you are considering the shift, now is the time to talk.

As you make this transition and for years after, Consensus AI can help you understand your most important audience–the people that trusted you with leadership.
