Innovation Fields in Public IT 2019 2020
What are the main fields of innovation in public IT? What are the most important developments, what application options exist and what effects can be expected? Where are opportunities, where are risks lurking? In order to answer these questions, five key areas of innovation in public IT in a data analysis of almost two million scientific publications were identified: resource-efficient AI, new developments in blockchain technology, artificial realism, weaknesses in AI systems and the automated detection of human emotions , Intentions and behaviour. In addition to a detailed look at the current fields of innovation, we also take a quick look back and give recommendations for the future design of developments triggered by the fields of innovation.

AI4CITIES
Artificial Intelligence (AI), one of the fastest-growing technologies in recent years, has the potential to play a mission-driven role in cities’ climate action plans. The AI4Cities project aims to harness this potential by bringing together leading European cities looking for energy and mobility solutions to reduce GHG emissions and support their climate action commitments towards carbon neutrality. Helsinki (Finland), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark), Paris region (France), Stavanger (Norway) and Tallinn (Estonia) are the six European cities and regions involved in this project.

In AI4Cities, these six cities will go through a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process. PCP is an innovation procurement tool to stimulate market innovation as it enables the public sector to steer the development of new solutions directly towards its needs.

In this context, the six cities will define the needs and requirements of the energy and mobility solutions to be developed, and challenge start-ups, SMEs and companies to design innovative solutions applying the use of AI and related enabling digital technologies, such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and big data applications.

The AI4Cities project is divided into five main phases (0-4): one preparatory phase (0), three standard PCP phases (1 – solutions design, 2 – prototype phase, and 3 – prototype testing phase) and one final impact assessment and follow up phase (4). A group of follower cities will be recruited throughout the project to enhance the market uptake of the developed solutions.
