Welcome to our final newsletter of the year. In 2017, our first year of establishment, we have been creating connections and learning about global AI developments as part of the Forum’s mission to enable New Zealand to be positioned to maximise our opportunities from AI. Along the way, we have come across numerous useful AI resources. We thought we would share our favourites with you in our Summer Holiday Reading List.
In other developments, we are delighted to announce the first round of partners and speakers for AI-DAY 2018 in partnership with NewZealand.ai. Tickets went on sale last week and at the time of writing, there are still a few early bird discounted tickets available, don’t miss out.
Recently, Canterbury University’s (and AI Forum Executive Council member) Dr Amy Fletcher wrote a thought-provoking piece on how the arts will be key for humanity to thrive in the coming artificial intelligence future.
A friendly reminder, if you haven’t already, please let us know what you want from the AI Forum next year. We are keen to know what you’d like to see from us! There is so much happening in the AI ecosystem right now, but we want to know how we can help deliver important outcomes for you and your organisation. Your feedback will help prioritise our work streams and the AI Forum’s agenda. Please share your views with us by completing our short survey.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the AI Forum’s work during the year! Wishing you a relaxing, restorative summer break, wherever you may be.
