Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)

Artificial intelligence has become a huge buzzword. Is it all hype, or could it really change everything? 

 78% of charities agree that AI is relevant to their charity and could transform it, yet 73% say they don’t feel prepared to respond to the opportunities and challenges it brings. We know that many charities are struggling with a lack of time and skills to use these technologies, but you don’t need to be a big corporate to benefit from them. 

Our team is already advising charities about why, and how, to use AI, tapping into the potential of the opportunities it brings to create efficiencies and better achieve your vision and mission. We’ve created resources to help you understand the possibilities, and what your next steps should be.
