Local government units should learn a thing or two from Singapore’s Municipal Services Office in their mission to promote peace and order at the municipal level.
Introducing OneService Chatbot – an AI-powered chatbot that is part of the Singapore government’s advocacy for using artificial intelligence in serving the public. The OneService Chatbot by the Municipal Services Office helps Singaporean residents report issues like littering, stray animals, and other neighborhood disturbances in order to improve the community.
A chatbot is defined as an online software that can automate responses to user messages and simulate human conversation through artificial intelligence and natural language processing (NLP).
Chatbots are becoming more popular with businesses as they have the capacity to streamline processes and provide customers a better user experience.
One of the most convenient features of chatbots is that they can be part of any messaging platform, which means that people can easily access them through the apps that they often use.
As for the OneService Chatbot, people can easily send a message to @OneServiceSG on Telegram or text +65 9821 9004 on WhatsApp.
On the chatbot, residents can choose whether to report a new incident, get an update on their pending report, or view some frequently asked questions.
To file a report, OneService Chatbot asks the user to type a description of the issue, and through artificial intelligence, the chatbot can determine what kind of issue the user is talking about. The chatbot then gets additional details like the time and date, exact location, and images if there are any, and automatically forwards the report to the organization in charge.
Since chatbots can process requests and transactions in real-time, the OneService Chatbot ultimately fast-tracks the process of having an issue discovered and addressed by the local authorities.
The government sector is one of the institutions that can benefit greatly from chatbot technology. With a chatbot, government agencies can upgrade their services online and help more citizens get the assistance they need in a more timely manner.
A chatbot can deliver a range of services such as facilitating voter registration and applications for various government services, providing news and public information, answering inquiries, handling concerns, and even processing payments.
In any case, OneService Chatbot is just an example of how organizations can utilize the omnipotence of artificial intelligence and the versatility of chatbots in transforming public service.
