Analysis of Research on Artificial Intelligence in Public Administration:

Literature Review and Textual Analysis

Keywords: digital tools, artificial intelligence, GPT-4, public administration, regulation


Purpose: This study aims to investigate how analysing academic research through digital tools can improve our understanding of the applications, functions, and challenges related to the use of advanced artificial technologies (AI) in public administration.
Methodology: The applied methodology relies on the use of digital tools, specifically Voyant-Tools and Chat Generative Pre-Trained Transformer (GPT-4), for text analysis in conjunction with a selection of scientific literature on artificial intelligence and public administration.
Findings: The results of our study show that researchers equally report advantages and disadvantages of using AI in public administration. Moreover, the research highlights the benefits of using artificial intelligence while emphasising the importance of the ethical and appropriate regulation thereof.
Practical implications: Our innovative approach of developing and using a combined methodology involving specialised digital tools to analyse scientific literature introduces a new dimension to the examination of scientific texts and has the potential to shape public policy in the field of public administration.
Originality: The existing body of research on public administration and artificial intelligence is limited. Our study expands the scientific field by delving into the use of artificial intelligence in public administration.
