Tools like AI-powered chatbots can provide a cost-effective and efficient means of engaging with stakeholders during policymaking by government.
These tools can be designed to interact with stakeholders in a natural language format and gather their input on various policy issues. This can enable policymakers to gain valuable insights on the concerns and opinions of stakeholders and use this information to inform policy decisions.
Additionally, chatbots can provide stakeholders with information and resources related to the policy-making process, increasing transparency and promoting greater engagement.
AI tools can also assist with identifying the most appropriate stakeholder consultation methods based on various factors such as the nature of the policy issue, the demographics of the stakeholders, and their preferred communication channels.
