Innovate Marquette SmartZone hosts AI technology expert

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Innovate Marquette SmartZone continued its monthly technology series today with a focus on artificial intelligence.

This month, organizers invited special guest speaker, Casey Phillips to share his experiences with AI.

Phillips integrates AI chat-bots for Intuit products like TurboTax.

He says AI is being used in new and exciting ways and that the new technology will continue to expand globally.

Today, Phillips was able to shed some light on the topic and dispel any misconceptions held about the budding technology.

Phillips says accepting this new technology will pay dividends within the next several years for those that adopt it.

"We just want to make things easier for users. We want to add more value. We want to make filing taxes easier for users and take a lot of confusion out of it. That way people don't always have to pay someone hundreds of thousands of dollars to get their answer to tax questions. Everyone can do it quicker easier and simpler from the comfort of their own home,” Phillips disclosed.

Phillips demonstrated that AI presents a unique opportunity for everyone to expand their business and grow their career right here in the Upper Peninsula.
