The session covered:

• The different types of AI
• AI uses in specific industries
• New AI platforms, such as Generative AI
• Review of existing AI tools available
• The responsible use of AI
• AI Ethics and risks considerations
• The importance of good quality training data
• AI uses in Grafton’s industry
• Opportunities for AI in Grafton’s group of companies
• Facilitated workshop to derive candidates for a proof of concept
• Actionable next steps
• List of AI resources

The event brought together senior leaders from across each of their brands to be exposed to new ideas and ways of thinking and allowed them to work together and develop ideas into practical actions that can be used in their businesses.

Participants came away from Andrew’s session with greater knowledge of AI, ML and a sense of the art of the possible, with a practical understanding of how and where technology could be applied in their industry.
