Where is Artificial Intelligence taking us?

The Christchurch Business Club luncheon speaker on Monday 8 April is Ben Reid, Executive Director of the AI Forum of New Zealand, which sets out to raise the level of awareness and capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in New Zealand. If you ever wondered about how A.I. might change your business or worried about whether robots will overthrow humans, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Ben is keenly sought after as a speaker on A.I. in Australasia and InfoTech strategy.

He graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy and has had a 24-year career in software development and strategic technology consulting, working with multinational software vendors, start-ups and government. He has led the A.I. Forum since June 2017.

He was former Chairman of Canterbury Tech, the regional tech industry body, and the establishment Chairman of Canterbury Angel Investors Inc., the regional early stage investment network.  Ben is a member of the Institute of Directors in New Zealand. 

The venue for this week’s luncheon is at The Canterbury Club located at 129 Cambridge Terrace, Christchurch Central, Christchurch 8140
