The AI Labour and the Economy working group has been established by the AI Forum of New Zealand to work on raising awareness, investigate and address the considerations associated with the development and application of AI.

This working group connects into the global Partnership on AI (PAI) and will bring a New Zealand perspective into international discussions and projects undertaken.

The learnings and connections from the wider global discussion will be leveraged in the development of our approach here in New Zealand.

Interest areas of this working group:

  1. Equality in the access and adoption of AI technology
  2. Education
  3. Impacts on employment
  4. Policy and regulation
  5. Economic development and innovation
