2019 AIIA Navigating Artificial Intelligence Summit

‘Are you AI ready?’

“If a machine can think, it might think more intelligently than we do….”

Alan Turing 1951

We are entering the true age of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – which some see as our salvation and others, our potential downfall.

Self-driving vehicles are now being tested around the world and are successfully travelling in space, with the rovers Spirit and Opportunity being used to collect data on Mars.

And closer to home, we can see the impact of AI with the mobilisation of drones being trialled in Mitchel, Canberra to deliver coffee to local customers.

Across other areas of our economy, banks are using AI to help detect fraudulent activities and to predict stock market changes and the police force are using AI to help decipher grainy CCTV images in order to catch culprits.

Doctors are now using machines to help them spot and diagnose diseases and other ailments for their patients and Air Traffic Controllers utilise AI to help keep passengers safe in the air and on the ground.

In parallel to the current rapid advancements that we are seeing in AI technology, questions are being asked about the adequacy of existing privacy, security, ethics, regulatory and governance frameworks surrounding AI practices.

In recognition of the developments of AI technology and the questions it’s posing, the Federal Government’s 2018-19 budget included $29.9 million which will be used over four years to strengthen Australia’s capability in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

The bulk of this funding is being delivered through the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science's Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program. Its focus is on applications of AI in health, agriculture, energy, mining and cybersecurity. The funding will also be used to develop an AI Ethics Framework and standards.

AI is also fostering new collaborative models within industry such as the partnership on AI between some of the big global technology companies.  This partnership aims ‘to study and formulate best practice on AI technologies to advance the public’s understanding of AI’.

As we sit on the cusp of this extraordinary new age of Artificial Intelligence, many impacts need to be considered, addressed and fully understood:

  • the ongoing introduction of AI highlights the need for specific new skills requirements and the need to address Australia’s ICT skills gap to ensure that there is no barrier to AI adoption and innovation in Australia, both in the public and private sectors;
  • data, together with its quality and depth, is also a critical ingredient to the successful application of AI. Therefore, skills in data analytics will continue to be in demand;
  • while there is much discussion around which jobs AI might replace, the reality is that AI will also augment human intelligence and capability, and create new opportunities;
  • the application of AI to augment intelligence and government service delivery and defence capability is already being considered by Australian social service delivery agencies and the Department of Defence.  However, we need to start innovating beyond our immediate needs;
  • AI’s impact on the Internet of Things is also being explored in different areas such as AI based home monitoring systems for the elderly and people with special needs.    These ideas need to be discussed, explored and shaped to maximise Australia’s productivity and technology driven global competitiveness;
  • The relationship between government and industry needs to be explored and galvanised around the subject of AI in order to ensure that outcomes that involve AI will deliver benefits to society

  • AI’s impact on digital inclusion also cannot be ignored. Will AI help bridge or create a further divide?

The 2019 AIIA Navigating Artificial Intelligence Summit will provide the opportunity to hear from global and local experts from industry, research institutes, startups and government agencies on this emerging topic.

To help drive this important agenda and continue the conversation, AIIA encourages you to be part of the conversation at the 2019 AIIA Navigating Artificial Intelligence Summit.

The Navigating Artificial Intelligence Summit is designed to initiate collaboration between government, industry peers and educators, and determine how best to ‘get AI ready’.

The aim of the Summit is to facilitate the conversations that technology and digital leaders are driving.

More specifically, as we sit on the cusp of this extraordinary new age of Artificial Intelligence, many impacts need to be considered, addressed and fully understood such as:

*          AI and the ICT Skills Gap

*          AI and Data Analytics

*          AI and the augmentation of human intelligence

*          AI and Government Service Delivery

*          AI and IoT

*          The relationship between AI, Government and Industry

*          AI’s impact on digital inclusion
