Take the Next Step: A Practical Approach to AI for Businesses


The rapidly changing world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has put us all on a road with seemingly no arrows or stop signs but is fast moving and full of endless wonder and possibilities.

Listed as one of the top ten technology trends for 2023 by Forbes, AI has seen unprecedented growth and development in the last few months and will continue to do so at an accelerating pace. With the power to automate tasks, improve customer experience and optimize content, AI is transforming the way the world works, leaving businesses wondering what’s next.

Join the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade for this breakfast event which will take a practical approach to AI for businesses with a focus on:

  • Applications that can help a business unlock growth and create efficiencies
  • Potential risks and mitigation strategies
  • Choosing the right applications for your business
  • First steps for a business looking to integrate AI into their operations.
