NAIC  invites you to nominate your organisation to be included in NAIC's forthcoming Australian AI Ecosystem Discoverability Platform including a public online directory to enable businesses to find Australian AI capabilities.

The form collects inputs from organisations seeking to be added to the AI Ecosystem Discoverability Platform directory which will be an open online resource. Information collected in the form includes fields that are for internal purposes only to help us validate the data and better understand the nature of AI capabilities in the Australian ecosystem. NAIC consists of CSIRO employees and is funded jointly by CSIRO, the Australian Government Department of Science, Resources, and Industry, and Google.

Nominating an organisation and being included on the Discoverability Platform are free of charge.

What will I be asked to do?

Completing the form should take less than 15 minutes. There are questions to identify a contact person and categories that apply to your organisation. You will be asked to create a short-written summary and complete a warrant to confirm the information provided is true. Your participation is completely voluntary, and you are free to withdraw by stopping at any time.

If you decide to withdraw from completing the form, any responses you have provided up to that point will be deleted. You can request the removal of your profile and any data submitted via the form by contacting, and subject to legislative requirements, these will be removed.

The form is for nomination purposes and upon review the National AI Centre reserves the right to not include an organisation in the Discoverability Platform.
