At our recent Jax Tech event, sponsored by SourceFuse, we delved deep into the dynamic realm of Artificial Intelligence. Attendees braced themselves for an electrifying experience as we brought together visionaries, thought leaders, and experts who shaped the landscape of AI in ways that left everyone both inspired and awestruck.

We explored the pivotal role AI plays in the world of startups, uncovered the cutting-edge AI tools revolutionizing enterprises, and gained insights into the overarching landscape of enterprise AI.

But it wasn’t just about knowledge transfer and thought-provoking discussions. At our core, we believe in fostering connections and building a community that thrives on collaboration. That’s why, as always, we kicked things off with a vibrant networking happy hour. It was the perfect opportunity to forge new connections, exchange ideas, and discover that next groundbreaking collaboration.

Over the last year, an exciting new market has appeared, building and using large language models like ChatGPT to solve valuable but previously difficult problems. When startup activity is extremely high (AI doubled from 12-26% of all funding in one year) it creates many new products and an opportunity to quickly leverage them to gain an edge over your competitors who aren’t tracking it closely. In his talk, Philip covered where the hottest new AI products are appearing the fastest and which ones can help you accelerate product development, marketing, and all other aspects of your business.
