You may have noticed our new logo popping up online. We were very excited when Supermoon, a globally recognised branding agency with a strong Kiwi link, approached us with a gratis offer we couldn’t refuse! They provided us with four equally good options which we presented to our Kahui Māori and a subset of our Executive Council. Their decision was unanimous and we look forward to sharing the brand story in the coming weeks
Exciting times ahead!
We have had three key working groups running this year, each of which are publishing outputs. Each of our groups set out to provide the Aotearoa New Zealand context for AI, how we are thinking about it, using it and how to do so responsibly.
AI Governance Website Launch
Please join the AI Governance website launch on Wednesday 1 November in Wellington. The website provides a set of best practice frameworks, tools and approaches to AI governance, curated for New Zealand’s environment. It’s not too late to register here.
Explainable AI (XAI) White Paper Launch
Join our live webinar for the launch – making AI models, systems and their decision-making processes more understandable, interpretable and transparent to humans. Please join us on Wednesday 8 November. Register now.
I’ll also be talking about these and our LLM/Gen AI Working Group’s efforts at a large number of events this November – see you there!
Last month, our AI Strategy reboot workshop was well attended and we have plans for a December follow up, so watch this space!
EC Elections – Voting closes tomorrow
Don’t forget to cast your vote in our Executive Council elections before Wednesday 1 November. The nominated representative for every member organisation has been sent voting papers.
