There is a global race to build guardrails for AI development and deployment to ensure responsible AI practices are developed in parallel with a rapidly accelerating Artificial Intelligence (AI) landscape.
Worldwide, Standards and regulatory changes are coming, which will require major upskilling and change for organisations to adapt to this new regulatory landscape.
In response to this global momentum and a clear industry need for guidance, the National AI Centre - together with our Knowledge Partners - are delighted to announce the Responsible AI Network, a world first cross-ecosystem collaboration aimed at uplifting the practice of responsible AI across Australia's the commercial sector.
We have partnered with the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group), Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), CEDA, CSIRO's Data61, Gradient Institute, Standards Australia, The Ethics Centre, The Human Technology Institute at UTS, the Tech Council of Australia, and the Governance Institute to create curated advice and best practice guidance within seven actionable pillars:
