Interviewer: Brian Sagala, Pacific Days Host at Pacific Media Network
Luke Fitzpatrick and Brian Sagala discuss how AI can improve engagement with the Pasifika community by creating a more culturally nuanced conversation.
Luke comes from the villages of Afega Manunu Tiavea and Sagone in Samoa. Luke is an AI developer with FranklyAI and a transport engineer with Beca. He is passionate about using technology to bridge the gap between cultures and languages. Luke used his expertise in AI development to create one of our earliest conversational agents that can speak and understand Samoan but also takes culture into account. Currently, Luke helps to look after Pacific language content for FranklyAI so that everyone can benefit from AI.
