The birth of Hailey AI [with transcript]


Speaker 1 (00:04):

I know that many members of the 6clicks TV audience, not just working in the sectors that use the platform, but are also entrepreneurs themselves, creators, thought leaders. Something that I'm always personally interested in is that aha moment where that spark, where did the idea for Haley come from? Where were you all Who said what? Take us to that moment where you realized, oh, of course. An AI engine.

Speaker 2 (00:36):

Yeah. Look, I think Louis touched on the fact that, I mean, we founded 6clicks probably 18 months ago now. The start of last year. We always had a view that at the right point, artificial intelligence will have a role to play. But I think in terms of understanding exactly what this compliance use case was and how we would apply artificial intelligence and in what way to solve our problem, I think that was probably sometime towards the end of last year, 2019, leading into Christmas. We were sitting, I think Andrew, Louis and I were sitting around a board table in our office in Burke Street, Melbourne, and I think that's where we were sort of jotting out on the whiteboard, how do we do what is done very manually? How do we automate that or make it easier to do? That was the first thing, rather than the spreadsheet that Andrew showed, how do we do that within the 6clicks platform itself? But then what's the role of artificial intelligence to completely change that paradigm and make it faster, easier, and ultimately more effective? So I think it was around about then.
