Senior Consultant- Branding and Communications
I think it's a topic that is worth having a conversation, but at the same time, I feel like it's too soon to sort of come to a conclusion and definitely one afternoon is not going to give us that. It's going to be in our DNA whether we like it or not. I believe that keeping up with what's happening in the world is crucial for us and the students. And the world is moving towards AI.
Founder, Principal Architect

I feel that AI is changing processes right now and as an architect, it's important to understand these processes and be equipped to handle them. Understanding how AI is changing the market and how it may boost your value is crucial. Discussing the role of AI in the industry is essential in order to take advantage of the opportunities it presents and address the challenges it provides.

AI cannot replace human creativity and empathy, and it should be seen as a supplement to the creative brain. While AI is designed to replace manual labour with a more effective and quicker way of doing work. The AI revolution will enable all sorts of professions to do their work more efficiently.

AI is an enabler for humans to be disruptors, creating invention and moving up the value chain. As we move up, life will get easier, but more complex as we figure out innovative ways to use AI to differentiate ourselves. AI technology is transforming every aspect of life, from data analysis to decision making. It is important to understand the capabilities of AI and how it is growing, as it is a tool that is constantly learning and evolving.
Investing in a design system can add value to marketing campaigns and product launches, making it a big enabler. AI can enable people to do more things than we thought of, and it presents tremendous opportunities for economic development. In the education landscape, AI can support personalised learning, acquire insight through data analysis, automate processes, and interact with students.

The Matic Studio
In my point of view it's a disruptor first and then an enabler, because AI is working so well, at first it will make people uncomfortable, but after they get used to it, it will become an enabler. So it's going to be a disruptor first, people get used to it, then enabler. We had a few great conversations about how AI is being used in the industry today and how it will be used in the future.
