Artificial Intelligence

According to the recent Artificial Intelligence forum, New Zealand is ill prepared to harness the opportunities - or deal with the risks attached to Artificial Intelligence. Further, Rod Oram highlights that New Zealand joins a cluster of laggard countries ranked poorly on “government AI readiness”. But while governance is typically slow to keep up with business, both the industry - and the technology that underpins it - is moving rapidly. And one business travelling with it is Spacetime: a company that applies artificial intelligence based solutions for both businesses and government. We sit down with its founder, Alex Bartley Catt, who shares the opportunities and risks attached to the nascent industry.
