Challenges include lack of awareness and knowledge about AI and a chronic skills shortage and our public bodies’ and business leaders not knowing the potential of AI and how it might impact their organisations.

To tap into the opportunities, we need skills combined with a better business ecosystems that nurture innovation and technological advancement.
