Mid-last month, Wellington.AI
hosted its first ever event with the theme of “AI for Public Good”.
(CEO of Bot the Builder) explained how AI has the potential to save lives, speaking vividly about his new chatbot for a New Zealand youth support and development organisation ‘Youthline’, while Nick Gerritsen
(investor and entrepreneur) officially launched SAM: the world’s first AI politician!
The peer-to-peer AI clinic session sparked creative discussion in three key areas: using AI to aid in pattern matching and volume recreation for VR, identifying biosecurity risk items in shipping containers or personal luggage via x-ray analysis, and getting Siri to understand Māori place names.
