The Telegraph reports on minister's comments at CPS event

Comments by Cabinet Office Minister Alex Burghart MP at an event held by the Centre for Policy Studies have been reported by The Telegraph.

Burghart told the event, entitled ‘AI in Whitehall’ and chaired by CPS Head of Tech Matthew Feeney, that AI and over computer programmes could, in future, replace some civil service jobs, leading to the quicker, cheaper civil service.

As an example, the minister said “We employ thousands of people on fraud detection, we may not need to employ thousands of people to do fraud protection in the future”.

The comments were also picked up by over 100 local newspapers.
