AI (Artificial Intelligence): using neural networks and other algorithms to enable machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing and machine vision.
Limitations of the data
These estimates are intended to illustrate the economic potential of AI but should not be interpreted as forecasts. The Sapere analysis relies on assumptions and has a number of caveats outlined in the final report.
AI applications are in their infancy in New Zealand and, in some cases, in the world. This means that the estimates are subject to a relatively high degree of uncertainty compared to more mature technologies
Sapere Research Group, an economic consultancy, undertook an analysis of broad potential impacts of Artificial Intelligence technology in New Zealand to calculate estimates of net economic benefits. The estimated impacts show the additional economic activity that could be generated under reasonable uptake of AI in 2035 relative to a baseline scenario of no uptake.
