The Brisbane-headquartered ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Hub has launched a new training program, beginning next year, for “micro-to-medium sized manufacturers” wanting to use artificial intelligence to improve their operations.
The SPRINTS Artificial Intelligence Accelerator Program is open to manufacturers around the country, and will see successful applicants work with AI and robotics experts for six to nine months “to increase their digital capabilities.”
According to ARM Hub, the program will provide skills and resources valued up to $25,000, giving “a direct technical injection” to manufacturers involved.
“Commercialisation of innovative solutions can be slow. This program seeks to overcome that and to give micro-to-medium sized manufacturers the unique opportunity to get an injection of technical expertise and resources in a short period of time to fast track their innovation,” said Associate Professor Cori Stewart, the ARM Hub’s CEO.
“We wish all the best to interested applicants and hope to provide a platform that allows them to adapt their skills and technologies before their next growth phase.”
Program guidelines can be found at this link. Expressions of interest are being accepted until January 9, 2022.
