The Responsible AI Software Engineering (RAISE) program aims to create the first national cohort-based world-leading training centre addressing the urgent need for deep expertise and excellent skills in Responsible AI Software Engineering for digital health, transportation, and defence sectors.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are increasingly employed by industry and government alike to make or inform high-stakes decisions for people. Although AI techniques are solving real-world challenges and transforming industries, there are serious concerns about their ability to behave and make decisions in ways that are considered responsible. RAISE will urgently address these national challenges by training the next generation of graduates to better design, develop, manage, maintain, test, and deploy AI software in a cost-effective way such that their AI algorithmic decisions are responsible to society.

RAISE will produce 11 graduates (7 PhDs, 1 Masters, and 3 Honours) who can innovate, operate and lead the design, development, management, maintenance, testing, and deployment of AI solutions while adhering to the Responsible AI principles. To achieve this, RAISE's graduates will aim to investigate and develop actionable theories, frameworks, and practical techniques and tools to help companies cost-effectively deliver Responsible AI-based software systems, providing significant benefits to students, academia, industry, governments, and society.
