Dallas-area CityFront Innovations, the leader in AI technology for mobile city applications, is launching the newest iteration of its natural language processing (NLP) engine, built to power smart city applications, improving service delivery and resident engagement.

The newest version of the CityFront Experience features improved AI technology that delivers NLP and image recognition technology that allows cities to reduce friction when providing citizens with access to services that include permit and FOIA requests and reporting of issues such as potholes. The CityFront Experience provides a unified solution citizens can consult on their smart devices to obtain information about city services and contacts, as well as information about local businesses.

“Citizens are increasingly expecting to interact with their local government digitally,” said Steve Denney, Co-Founder and CTO of CityFront Innovations. “The CityFront Experience is designed with users in mind, providing an experience that delights both the citizen and the local government leader.”

Built via a low-code platform, the CityFront Experience can be rapidly deployed and is system agnostic, allowing for integration into a variety of city legacy systems. Language interpretation, GIS and smart parking are other options that can be built into the app platform, eliminating the need for multiple city applications that users have to navigate.

“Communication with citizens has always been a critical need for local governments,” said Denney. “both for information sharing and to support local businesses. With COVID-19 that need has been heightened. The CityFront Experience can be customized to support each city or organization’s individual needs and can be up and running quickly.”
