Artificial intelligence (AI) that can enhance, improve and scale human expertise is profoundly changing our lives. It is transforming how we perceive and interact with the physical and digital worlds shaping our experiences, beliefs and choices. AI is poised to disrupt industries, economies, and geopolitics.
Australia is surprisingly well positioned to seize the new opportunities for innovation and prosperity that AI technologies can bring. The AI race is not a technology competition, it's a race to attract strategic investment and amass AI talent. It's a race we simply cannot afford to ignore as Australian business and our national digital borders become increasingly vulnerable to the power and influence of AI. Our major trading partners have already declared their ambitions to be AI leaders making substantial investments. Now is the time for Australia to take bold strategic action.
