Knowledge Hub: An Introduction to AI for Small Business

20 July, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join our Introduction to AI Knowledge Hub and learn how to start working with the latest AI tools, to save time and money in your business.

This year has seen an explosion in mass-market AI software, from image generation to chatbots. The sector is evolving rapidly, with major web and application developers from Microsoft to Google adding a variety of AI tools to their platforms. As a small business, what do you need to know?

Chances are, your business is already using some form of AI, even if you don’t know it yet. Many of the automation, prediction and personalisation tools that underpin the technology we use every day are getting more sophisticated, as they become more capable of making autonomous decisions and recommendations, or responding better to natural human speech.

This Knowledge Hub session will provide you with a bitesize introduction to time-saving and productivity-enhancing applications for businesses, what to understand before starting to use them, and how to future-proof your team for the mass-market tools that we might all be adopting soon.

The session will cover:

  • An overview of AI and machine learning use cases, and how to identify opportunities within your business
  • How to benefit from generative AI tools such as ChatGPT, Google Bard and GitHub Copilot – whilst safeguarding privacy, IP and quality
  • How to get started with a roadmap for integrating data science and AI into your business and technology strategy
  • Likely trends in AI over the next 18 months, impacts on different areas of business, and how to position for advantage
  • Q&A
