Amii Monthly News - December 2023

It’s been quite the year, both for Amii and the world of AI at large. We’ve seen exciting leaps forward in the technology, and AI becoming a bigger part of our daily lives. More and more companies are seeing the potential that artificial intelligence has to transform what they do. 

This month, we’re taking a look back at some of the big trends in AI in 2023 and how Amii has been involved in them. We'll be celebrating some of the ways that Amii has pushed forward the science of machine learning, and the ways we have helped industry leaders develop real-world AI solutions. We just posted about Finbarr Timbers' talk during Upper Bound about GPT research and what the future might look like.

We'll have more Best of Amii posts in the coming days, so keep an eye on our LinkedIn, X/Twitter, and Instagram.

We’re looking forward to even more in the new year. As part of that, our Talent team is interested in hearing from you: what do you think will be the biggest gap in skillset for emerging AI talent over the next year? We’d love to hear from you in this short survey so we can better understand what your needs are for AI Talent. 

I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday this year. We’re looking forward to another inspiring year in 2024.

See you soon,
