Artificial Intelligence

Demystifying AI for Business Owners

Artificial Intelligence has the potential to make a transformative impact on Alaska, by leveling the playing field between us and the rest of the world.

To that end, the Alaska SBDC has established an Artificial Intelligence Resource Center (AIRC). Our AIRC can help connect business owners with new tools and resources, and leverage AI solutions for business operations, customer experiences, and product development – while contributing to the advancement of AI in Alaska.
