Public Sector Use of New Technology


Published in Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration

Governments are often criticized for being slow to embrace new technology, but close examination reveals that government is often at the cutting edge of technological change. Many influential technologies—like the Internet, intelligent voice assistants, and genetic tracing—were developed by governments.  This virtual special issue features ten articles related to public sector use of new technologies and the role the public sector plays in influencing dissemination, utilisation, and regulation of new technology.  The articles cover a wide spectrum of technologies, ranging from artificial intelligence, e-government, urban sustainability, position management innovations, and crowdsourcing.

FREE ACCESS to the below articles via this page until 30 June 2022
