Eleonora Harwich - Reform
Ele’s work focuses on how tech innovations can help public services deliver better outcomes for people in the most efficient way. She co-authored a project which looked at the uses of distributed ledger technologies for identity management in the public sector and is particularly interested in the public-sector applications of artificial intelligence (AI). She has led and co-authored a paper on AI in the NHS. This project looked at how AI could help the NHS deliver its service transformation plans, as well as the challenges that need to be addressed to make this a reality.
She writes regularly for the online and print press, including The Guardian’s Public Leaders Network, Public Sector Focus Magazine and the British Journal of Healthcare Computing. She is also frequently invited to speak at various national and international conferences on the subject of AI in public service or AI in the NHS.
