With New Zealand's Artificial Intelligence industry growing at a fast rate of knots Justin Flitter (Marketer, TEDxAuckland Producer) has jumped on an opportunity to satisfy the demand for knowledge and advice from the business community.
Last month Justin launched NEWZEALAND.AI, a platform to inform, support and showcase Kiwi businesses utilising artificial intelligence. He sees a significant community already actively supporting developers but very little to support the wider non-techie business community.
"In every industry business leaders know Artificial Intelligence is going to impact their business planning, strategy and processes, customer engagement and marketing, even the roles and skills they'll need in the future. To manage these changes and leverage AI technology business leaders need to focus on their data strategy and build internal capability. They want to know about the different types of AI, how to identify business opportunities to use AI and who they should be hiring or partnering with to make that happen," says Justin.
His new business AI New Zealand will work with partners to build out the NEWZEALAND.AI website with resources and tools for anyone to start learning about AI and exploring the possibilities within their business.
AI New Zealand hosts monthly AIHappyHour events attracting 100-150 people each event. The next AIHappyHour is at Microsoft on August 23rd. Details and tickets are available here.
In 2018 he's planning a series of AI Business Conferences with the first for Business Leaders to be hosted at the ASB Waterfront Theatre on March 28th and AI-DAY for Marketers scheduled for July 5th at the same venue.
To get involved you can follow AI New Zealand on TwitterFacebook or subscribe to emails here or email [email protected] if your company is interested in sponsoring the AI-DAY Business Leaders Conference, if you'd like to recommend a speaker or topic or would be interested in joining the Advisory Board.
