Government Information Summary by WikiGOV

GOV.UK is a UK government website that provides access to government services and information. It launched in 2012, replacing Directgov and Business Link online services, and as of 2023, it is the second-most used government website globally. GOV.UK has won several awards, including Design of the Year 2013 and a D&AD Black Pencil award. The site was created as a result of the Alphagov project, with the aim of improving the citizen experience of government web services and achieving yearly savings of £64 million. The GOV.UK Design System was introduced in 2018 to provide a centralized location for government departments to access styles, components, and patterns.


WikiGOV takes information from GOV.UK. It makes a "WikiGOV summary" like this one with key takeaways by using the ChatGPT. Then it gives detail from GOV.UK. The goal is to experiment with seeing how well ChatGPT can summarise information.
