Prof Christoph Schumacher - GDPLive – From the concept to the release of the first live GDP tracker in the world!

Christoph SchumacherNovember 14, 2019

About the Webinar

Unlike governments, who release GDP information with a six- to twelve-month delay, GDPLive provides real-time GDP values as well as forecasts up to the end of the subsequent quarter. It is a powerful artificial intelligence that turns daily data-feeds from major New Zealand enterprises into a GDP value on a national, regional and industry level. Since its release in December 2018, the GDPLive website (gdplive.net) has had over a million page views and has attracted the interest of the business sector as well as government. In this webinar, I will talk about the rollercoaster ride of product innovation: from initial idea to building the AI model, to releasing the website.
