Chartered Director

An introduction to AI for directors: A Chartered Director Lunchtime Webinar

29 May 2018

AI, Machine Intelligence and 'Bots'. These terms have much hype and, unfortunately, mystique about them.

In the next in our series of Chartered Director Lunchtime Webinars on Friday 15 June, we'll be joined by Josh Comrie of Ambit, who will lift the lid on this somewhat mysterious technology, and make it accessible and understandable for directors who have had no exposure to the sector before.

Josh Comrie is the founder and CEO of Ambit - New Zealand’s leading conversational AI company.  He has several successful ventures and exits behind him, in addition to being an experienced Director and Chair. As a business person, he brings a unique perspective to bear, avoiding any of the jargon or hype usually associated with AI, which can act as a barrier to understanding. In this session he will outline what AI is, how it came about, why it's so important and how to make a foray into the arena. Plus, we're told, a couple of bot jokes. 

Josh's Chartered Director Lunchtime Webinar will run from 1-2pm on Friday 15 June, and is open to Chartered Directors, as well as Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction holders so do pass the registration link on to your colleagues and peers. 

If you are unable to listen to the webinar live, registering your details in advance will ensure you are sent a link to the recorded session afterwards.
