Vidar Hokstad is the founder of Engage/AI, a new artificial intelligence tool which  he has created to take the effort out to engaging on social media.

As a local developer and consultant, Hokstad turned to social media as a lead generation tool for his services. He soon discovered how much effort is required to engage and build an audience, so he decided to devise a way to automate the process.

Hokstad is currently trialling the tool across various Twitter profiles and will discuss his next moves in making the product available.
