Manufacturing News

A new programme to support Australian businesses adopt and integrate Artificial Intelligence safely into their work practices has been launched by the Minister for Industry and Science Ed Husic.

The Australian Government’s Responsible Artificial Intelligence Adopt Program will provide $17 million to establish up to five AI Adopt centres across Australia.

The government is seeking applications from Australian businesses, industry partners and research institutions with the capability to deliver training and upskilling packages to businesses.

Each centre will target business in one of the key priority areas of the National Reconstruction Fund creating a network of industry specific centres designed to:

  • Showcase the innovative capabilities that AI can unlock
  • Provide guidance on how to adopt AI responsibly and efficiently
  • Provide specialist training to help develop specific skills to effectively manage AI
  • And offer training without charge to eligible businesses.

The centres will complement the National Artificial Intelligence Centre and participate in the Responsible AI Network.

The Responsible Artificial Intelligence Adopt Program applications are open until 29 January, 2023.

Husic said: “Harnessing the power of AI will enhance productivity helping to crack one of the biggest challenges facing Australia.

“This network of centres will give businesses clear and direct advice on how to integrate AI into their work systems.”
