WG5 – Growing the AI Talent Pool

Encouraging Kiwis to choose AI related careers

This working group will look at how universities can offer more courses and degrees in this field, while also encouraging the choice of AI-related fields as a career and meeting demand to help bridge the short term supply gap.
