Derby City Council, GB connects residents to city services with AI-powered digital assistants

Derby City Council, GB AI Digital Assistant Connect Resident

In Progress

Derby City Council introduced chatbots Darcie and Ali during an April 2023 rollout. Both bots use conversational AI to answer questions and direct inquiries to the correct city departments. Residents speak with Darcie via the council's website and the main phone line. Ali helps visitors to the Derby Homes website. Digital assistants and digital kiosks at Council House provided after-hours services during a pilot of shortened reception hours.
