The country's largest data specialist business, Qrious has the results from its inaugural State of AI report.

It reveals that the adoption and use of AI in New Zealand businesses could be a lot quicker off the mark.

Only one in five organisations have gone beyond AI trials and currently have the ability to achieve scale and impact from using AI technology.

Qrious' acting CEO, Stephen Ponsford, says it's the most complete picture of artificial intelligence maturity in business and provides not only benchmarking, but a path for future progress.

It shows some businesses risk being left behind in a post-Covid economic recovery.
