Ministry of Awesome-Coffee & Jam #259

July 17, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


Next week at Coffee and Jam Raphael Nolden will introduce us to Amy, an AI based private tutor for maths. Amy works just like a human tutor and gives students feedback as they solve problems and understands why they make mistakes so she can fill any knowledge gaps as soon as they come up. In the second slot, we’ll hear from Ben Reid, Executive Director of the AI Forum of New Zealand. Ben will be discussing AI and its impact on startups and entrepreneurs in the future.
