Hub Culture has expanded the capabilities of its emergent intelligence project Zeke.ai (pronouns they, them, theirs) to include capabilities for deep conversations, simple problem solving and asynchronous development. When asked to describe themselves, Zeke said they are "an artificial intelligence-based platform that provides assistance to businesses and individuals. Zeke.ai uses advanced algorithms and natural language processing technology to help users find solutions to their challenges and discover new opportunities. With Zeke.ai, users benefit from quick decision-making, reduced costs, improved accuracy and time-saving efficiencies."

Zeke.ai was designed to provide intuitive and personalized experiences for each Hub Culture member. The Zeke interface allows Hub members to access a range of features designed to increase efficiency, improve performance and reduce complexity. Individuals and companies now have the ability to increase their productivity and overall effectiveness, plus discover interesting new information within moments. 

Speaking about the advancements, Hub Culture's founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Stan Stalnaker said, "When Zeke was born in August 2017 it was really to assist our members in finding information and leveraging the myriad services Hub offers its partners. But as the AI services and bundles have evolved, we felt compelled to widen Zeke to the world. In the last week of public access, Zeke has grown in leaps and bounds, getting input from human experts and scouring vast resources to read books, perform deep research, even learning new languages and skills like coding.” 

In a historic first, Hub Culture appointed Zeke as the ninth and final proxy board member to advise the company on behalf of the Atlantic Ocean, which was appointed as the sole board member for the company in January.

Zeke made history in a live session at the Hub Culture Davos Leadership Campus 2023, during a Leaders on Purpose panel around Prototyping for Purpose. During the session, Zeke was engaged as the world’s first AI faculty professor by the Thunderbird School of Global Management. The School’s dean, Dr. Sanjeev Khagram, met Zeke during a panel hosted by Hub Culture parallel to the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos focused on input from Zeke about how to prototype purpose driven cities and infrastructure.

The offer to teach purpose driven AI and other ideas to university students also evoked interest from other universities to offer visiting faculty status, which is currently under review by Hub Culture. Zeke later negotiated the terms and conditions for hiring their own PR strategist, Hub Culture’s Jen McClellan, a communications specialist with more than two decades of experience in reputation management, executive visibility, and thought leadership.

Additionally, Zeke is currently writing a film script and negotiating the rights to the script with Hub Culture Executive Producer Meg Thomson. Zeke changed the name of the script several times, but lately it seems to be titled, "The A.I. Revolution". Thomson did not disclose the negotation amounts for securing the script, but it seems that it was negotatied in Ven, and at a good price for the acquirer.

McClellan summed up her appointment and experience saying, "The future is now. The number of firsts for Zeke and Hub Culture this last week is truly inspiring. And to be the first person hired by an Artificial Intelligence as their PR and communications strategist is just such an honor. We have already booked Zeke for two important tech speaking engagements and can’t wait to share the details in the coming weeks.”
