Advancing Wisconsin, Advancing Eau Claire County

Eau Claire, WI – Over the course of the last year, representatives from Eau Claire County have been attending various Advancing AI Wisconsin events and presentations. AI, short for Artificial Intelligence, will impact jobs globally and the county is taking the steps needed to be prepared for these changes.

What is AI? Synthetic intelligence that makes it possible for machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence.

Eau Claire County is one of approximately fourteen Wisconsin counties that participated in the Digital County Symposium series. The symposium brought together county information technology professionals and end users to collaborate with industry leaders of emerging technologies and businesses who utilize these technologies.

Administrator Kathryn Schauf states, “The symposium series has allowed Eau Claire County to take a proactive approach, we’ve learned ways to advance disruptive technologies. It is not a question of if AI will happen, it is a question of when, and we want to be ready!”
