The role of AI in Australia in 2030: Policy Implications and the Nature of Industry in Society

Join IPAA and the Australian Council of Learned Academies (ACOLA) for a future-focused event on Artificial Intelligence.

Featuring a keynote presentation by Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel AO, IPAA and ACOLA are pleased to bring together the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Expert Group and key Government officials leading AI implementation for a panel discussion on the future opportunities and challenges of AI in Government operations and service delivery.

The panel’s conversation will focus on the role of AI for innovations in industry and service delivery and what implications this will have on society for 2030, discussing how AI will reshape government delivery and the importance and need to harness AI in Government. 

Showcasing the Commonwealth funded ACOLA AI report released in August 2019, the discussion will highlight the importance of multidisciplinary thinking, with a chance to increase productive dialogue between academia and policymakers.
