Zeren and Chapman Tripp are proud to support the Artificial Intelligence Forum of New Zealand.

Launched officially in Wellington on 7 June this year, the Forum seeks to raise the level of awareness and capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) in New Zealand.

The Forum brings together citizens, business, academia and the government connecting, promoting and advancing the AI ecosystem to help ensure a thriving New Zealand.

The rapid development of AI technologies presents major opportunities and challenges for our country: from creating world-leading AI businesses, nurturing a pool of talented AI engineers, applying AI technologies to our agriculture, government, manufacturing and service industries to holding a meaningful national debate on the broader implications for society.

Head of Zeren and Chapman Tripp partner Bruce McClintock is a member of the Executive Council of the AI Forum. “We’re excited to be part of the AI Forum,” says McClintock.

“AI is a game changer and it’s here now. New Zealand needs to actively engage with AI in order to secure our future prosperity. The AI Forum is promoting the opportunities raised by AI, supporting local uses and emerging New Zealand firms.”
