National AI Month commences

CSIRO’s National AI Centre has launched Australia’s inaugural AI Month, kicking off the first of a series of AI-related events nationwide.

AI Month will be held from 15 November to 15 December, and will provide an avenue for AI organisations, entrepreneurs and researchers to showcase Australia’s AI expertise and provide a forum to discuss local perspectives on the emerging technology.

The first AI Month events included a workshop held by the Monash Data Futures Institute covering AI governance and standards; a virtual training course from the IEEE Standards Association on trustworthy AI certification; and DataFest at ANZ, an event for ANZ staff to enter the world of data-driven insights.

In total more than 50 free and ticketed AI-related events hosted by over 40 organisations will be held across the country, including workshops, panel discussions, hackathons and conferences.

National AI Centre Director Stela Solar said AI Month is aimed at supporting the centre’s mission to ensure a responsible and inclusive AI future for Australia.

“The rapid advancements in AI this year have emphasised the need for Australia to seize the AI opportunity and accelerate its global competitiveness,” she said.

“This month we are encouraging everyone to join in the important conversations to make the AI opportunity real. Together, we can shape a responsible and inclusive AI future for Australia.”

A full list of events planned for AI Month is available here.
