The Artificial Intelligence Forum of New Zealand (AI Forum) is a purpose-driven, not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) that is funded by members. The association was founded in 2017.
The AI Forum brings together New Zealand’s community of artificial intelligence technology innovators, end users, investor groups, regulators, researchers, educators, entrepreneurs and interested public to work together to find ways to use AI to help enable a prosperous, inclusive and thriving future for our nation.
The Forum advances New Zealand’s AI ecosystem through connections, advocacy, growing talent and collaboration. The AI Forum promotes the economic opportunities raised by AI, supporting great applications of AI and emerging New Zealand AI firms, and also works to ensure that society can adapt to the rapid and far-reaching changes that AI technology will bring.
The Forum holds an evidence based approach, focusing on addressing challenges to realise opportunities.
