Efficient Government through AI?

  • AI is revolutionising all aspects of our economy and society, government is no exception.
  • It’s incumbent upon the Australian Government at local, state and federal level, to embrace this change.
  • AIML is attempting to lead this transition by acting as a conduit between world class researchers and major Australian stakeholders, including industry and government services.
