As a leader in delivering Artificial Intelligence (AI) services, as recognised by Forrester Research, KPMG is very pleased to be able to draw upon our multi-disciplinary expertise to provide our views and recommendations on the Australian Government’s discussion paper, An AI Action Plan for All Australians.
It is our overwhelming view that trustworthy artificial intelligence systems will have a transformational impact on industry and society. We are therefore very supportive of the Australian government’s efforts to develop an AI Action Plan to maximise the benefits of AI for all Australians.
As highlighted in the report AI and Australia: charting a path to sustainable competitive advantage, KPMG is firmly of the view that Australia has the potential to demonstrate leadership and global best practice in AI, but this will require a progressive national AI strategy and plan that brings together stakeholders from government, business, research, education and society. An effective AI Action Plan will be pivotal to Australia’s ability to capture the $315 billion economic opportunity outlined in CSIRO’s Digital Innovation report.
KPMG’s submission provides feedback and recommendations to the specific questions proposed in the discussion paper. Our input draws upon a multi-disciplinary team of subject matter experts who have been at the forefront of the delivery of AI systems, as well as thought leadership on critical elements of AI adoption such as Trust in AI and AI capability development.
