Pioneering A.I Adoption with Groundbreaking Incubator Program

Fostering a Culture of Continuous Innovation

The two-day hybrid program aimed to introduce Bot Unify, an AI-powered assistant powered by Google’s AI technologies, into Gamuda’s operations. Bot Unify was built in-house by the Gamuda Excellence Transformation (GET) Team.

Through workshops by Google and GET, demonstrations, and brainstorming sessions, hundreds of Gamudians gained insights into the chatbot’s capabilities, paving the way for an agile, technology-driven workplace culture that embraces innovation.

The participation level far exceeded expectations. It was interesting to have different departments share their experiences and domain problems and how they saw the AI bots complementing them on their day-to-day tasks.
