As Australia develops its digital economy into the future, businesses must get familiarised with new and evolving technologies to expand beyond their physical location and compete on a global scale in the digital space. Australian businesses can greatly benefit from technology while customers can be confident that systems and processes are in place to ensure artificial intelligence’s ethical use.

Completing this guide allows organisations to understand and address governance, infrastructure, communication, and skills gaps, shortlist viable AI vendors, refer industry resources and ultimately be confident in their delivery of effective, appropriate and people-centric AI projects.
