    Are Canadians Emotionally Engaged with the Government?

    Keynote speaker: Sumair Sayani, Founder, PathosAI. In collaboration with PathosAI, Citizen First powered by the Institute for Citizen-Centred Service undertook a pilot project using Citizens First research. The purpose was to test their unique artificial intelligence models and tools to measure emotions of Canadian citizens at the point of the service interaction, identify the drivers of those emotions, to finally calculate the emotional engagement with government. Learn about the remarkably interesting results from this pilot project and discuss the method PathosAI deployed to deliver the insights. Explore how you can deploy this innovative method to build a stronger citizen emotional engagement with the services you offer.
