Benefits to South Australia
The Australian Institute for Machine Learning will place South Australia on the global map of world's best centres of excellence in machine learning – the requirement of future global competitiveness.
Establishing the Institute will build on and realise the full potential of the investments in Smart Cities initiatives, the South Australian Health and Medical Institute (SAHMRI), defence industries, as well as priorities such as the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and the renewable energy sector.
It will give our workers, companies and government a global competitive advantage in being able to adapt to a world powered by artificial intelligence. It will help our government agencies to transform and become globally-leading in the adoption of machine learning to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public services.
It will attract the world’s best and brightest to come and work and study in South Australia. World-class education in artificial intelligence and machine learning is going to be in high demand globally, and Adelaide has a chance to be seen as one of the top 'go to' destinations.
The AIML will allow local businesses to access world-best technology in image detection and world-class capabilities in machine learning. Any business can potentially take advantage of AI – and if they can use world-best AI to help their own business, it is likely that these new products will have global appeal.
