International Dimensions of Artificial Intelligence
22nd Febuary, 2019 | Crawford School of Public Policy, Canberra
How public policy, research and industry are approaching the opportunities and risks of AI in an international context
Experts from Australia and from Europe will enable discussion around current public policy and research trends in different aspects of artificial intelligence, in particular as they relate to the Australian Government’s newly released “Australia’s Tech Future” strategy.
A morning panel discussion will explore different national approaches, policies and strategies around AI. It will include presentations from the European Commission’s perspective, as well as from EU Member States, plus the Australian Government. This discussion will provide a forum to share experiences and policy directions, and to compare different approaches from different jurisdictions.
The afternoon sessions will involve several workshops on pertinent research topics related to AI, followed by networking cocktails. Each workshop will address different aspects of AI, focussing on current trends in research and industry, and will including international perspectives also. Workshop topics will include:
- Cybersecurity - when AI becomes a threat but also a part of the solution
- Security - safeguarding online and physical systems
- Law/Policy - enabling reliable and trusted governance and business environments
- Health - improving health and well-being outcomes
- Education - transforming learning environments, organisations and professions
- Arts/Culture - enlivening experience and community
