Australia’s artificial intelligence ecosystem is on display this month as the country celebrates its prowess in this fast-developing technology.
Launched by CSIRO’s National Artificial Intelligence Centre (NAIC), Australia’s first AI Month – which runs from 15 November to 15 December – seeks to bring together AI entrepreneurs, businesses, and experts.
There are more than 50 events around Australia scheduled for the month ahead.
National AI Centre Director Stela Solar said the month-long event was an opportunity for Australians to get involved in creating a “responsible and inclusive AU future”.
“The rapid advancements in AI this year have emphasised the need for Australia to seize the AI opportunity and accelerate its global competitiveness,” said Ms Solar.
“We are encouraging everyone to join in the important conversations to make the AI opportunity real.
AI Month was officially launched by the Minister for Industry and Science Ed Husic at the opening of Friend or Foe – The Rise of Artificial Intelligence, a new exhibition by Australian technologist and artist Luke Millanta at science museum Questacon in Canberra.
Businesses holding AI events between 15 November and 15 December are encouraged to email details to NAIC at firstname.lastname@example.org so it can be added to the national calendar.
