Disruptive technology and AI are both recognized as emerging areas of influence on the economy. WisBusiness.com featured the topic in a recent podcast with WBA’s Mike Semmann. WBA has been on the ground floor of this effort in Wisconsin. As a co-founder of Advancing AI Wisconsin, Semmann has been representing the banking industry over the past 18 months as the grassroots initiative continues to raise awareness related to several disruptive innovations—machine learning, artificial intelligence and other technologies. 

WisBusiness.com interviewed Semmann after learning of WBA’s and Advancing AI Wisconsin’s recent testimony in front of the Assembly Committee on Jobs and the Economy. Several Advancing AI members explained to Committee Members the impact of disruptive technology and AI on Wisconsin businesses, workforce needs, educational programming, and the State overall. 

Members of Advancing AI Wisconsin testifying that day included representatives from Marquette University, UW-Madison, Brown County and more. Advancing AI Wisconsin has over 80 members. You can learn more about the group at AdvancingAIWisconsin.com or by contacting Semmann via email
