Building Aotearoa’s Artificial Intelligence Capability

Join a panel of experts discussing New Zealand's Artificial Intelligence capability and the opportunities for AI adoption and growth.

What's it all about?

Artificial Intelligence offers opportunities to grow and enhance technology skill sets, develop new talent and invest in high-growth sectors. In addition, AI-based technologies offer new and exciting solutions to a wide-range of social and business problems – with AI adoption promising huge economic benefits.

Research by the AI Forum notes: “New Zealand will need to cultivate a broader understanding of AI and train more AI practitioners to successfully increase AI adoption rates.” [AI Forum Report: Towards our Intelligent Future].

This event presents a not to be missed panel discussion on building Artificial Intelligence and emerging tech capability throughout New Zealand via cross-sector collaboration and will highlight the benefits of industry, academia, community and Government working together to boost AI education and expertise.
