You're a busy person, and your time is valuable. You should not have to wait on hold when calling a government office. Artificially Intelligent bots should be able to answer most questions immediately. As Circuit Clerk, Ryan will build a Voice User Interface, also known as Alexa, that allow anyone to communicate with intelligent applications from the comfort of your living room.
For example, you'd be able to ask Alexa how to file a FOIA request, to give you directions to the Courthouse, about your Jury Duty, the Office hours, or anything else you can think of.
While this idea exists in the test environment only right now, click on the video to the right of this text to see an example of how it would work.
"You should never have to wait on hold when calling a government office. My goal is to make waiting a thing of the past."
— Ryan Kauffman, Democratic Candidate for Kendall County Circuit Clerk
