Prof. Toby Walsh | Laureate Fellow & Scientia Professor of AI, School of CSE, UNSW Sydney
What are likely future demands on workers’ skills and what are the implications for Australia’s training system?
From a perspective of organisational readiness and scientific advances, Australia is amongst the global leaders in developing applications for, and with, Artificial Intelligence.
Having adequate numbers of qualified data scientists and machine learning experts is seen as one of the challenges ahead. What does this mean for Australia’s education and training system? What do we need to teach and learn?
Is it all about technical skills – or, as argued in this presentation, are there soft skills to be considered as well?
Prof. Toby Walsh discussed the implications and impacts of future demands for workers’ skills on Australia's training system.
