We spoke to 200 AI practitioners across Australia about the availability of AI computing infrastructure and services for organisations developing, adopting or researching AI.

59 per cent reported no difficulty obtaining end to end services, cloud platforms, pre-configured or pre-trained AI modules, or Platforms as a Service (PaaS).

However, accessing sovereign AI compute is a bigger challenge, with 75 per cent of AI developers perceiving this to be an important future challenge.

Respondents believed that overall, machine learning was reported to be the AI field with the greatest opportunities. Interestingly, younger organisations tended to note natural language processing as a significant opportunity.

Some of the concerns raised included privacy and security as the primary anticipated challenges when obtaining AI computing or services over the next 12 months and insufficient AI and data literacy was perceived as the second most important change to those seeking to grow AI in Australia.

The study was commissioned by the National AI Centre and CSIRO’s IMT and conducted by Aalto.
