“What the heck is AI and What Can it Do for My Business?”
AI is exciting, confusing and scary all at the same time. For people starting a business or managing an existing one, the decision to embrace AI or not could be one of the most critical decisions they make. Nathan and David will attempt to demystify AI and provide a way to evaluate if AI is right for your business.
