Australia’s chief data science research body, Data 61, has put the call out to industry to guide the future regulation of artificial intelligence technologies following the release of its AI ethics framework discussion paper.

The NSW Government has announced an $11.4 million agreement with Data61, a technology research and development arm of the CSIRO, to fund a number of technology initiatives for the state, with a key focus on cybersecurity.

CSIRO is growing its investment base with a $52 million funding program to support breakthroughs in science, and redefine the future for full-scale commercialisation.

With a two-way trade annually valued at over $28 billion, the Australian and Singapore governments are boosting collaboration around ICT exports, while building the science and innovation agenda.
