Abstract

Data-driven technologies, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), are becoming more widely used in all domains of South African society. From private companies to non-profit organisations and government entities, the interest in data-driven models and systems for improving planning, decision-making and service delivery is steadily rising, motivated by both global trends in digitalisation and the competitive edge that such technologies appear to offer.
