Using artificial intelligence (AI) to solve real work problems is no longer science fiction. AI is something that is becoming more common in our daily lives, and it has the potential to enhance the way people use technology in their daily activities.

> In this session, we’ll start with a primer on the types of AI available today that can be used to build modern applications the enhance the user experience for our clients. Then, we’ll take a deep dive by following up with a post-mortem on IST’s own chatbot initiative to explore how the University of Manitoba could use chatbots to provide a robust scalable solution for helping students.
