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.
The AI Roadmap prepared by CSIRO/data61 for the Australian Government in 2019 identifies opportunities for the greater use of AI - and ways to realise them.
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 will discuss the implications and impacts of future demands for workers’ skills on Australia's training system.
