AI-fuelled innovation and transformation at a local level

AI localism, the use and governance of AI at the local level, has the potential to revolutionise how cities are governed, and create more equitable access to data and technology.

Localism or “community-led decision and policy making” is problem-solving from the bottom up, not top-down. In action, it requires networks, collaborations, institutions, and leaders to commit to sharing the data and information critical to enabling localised decision-making.
