​​​​​​Webinar Recap 
At the end of March we ran a well-received webinar on AI in Social Housing, hosted by Gary Dickson, SFHA Digital and Design Manager with a presentation from Michael Appleby, Managing Director of Altair Consulting.  
Key takeaways 
Michael delivered a great talk and led us through a journey of generative AI to date and where we will see the use of it in our sector. Some key takeaways mentioned that SFHA members should take note of: 

  • Humans using AI will replace those that don’t 
  • AI is already commonplace so you need to consider its use 
  • Draft an AI policy, however simple 
  • Consider upskilling staff in it 
  • 2024 is the year of AI embedded in practical use 
  • AI is a leadership-level issue, not a technical issue
