CSIRO National Artificial Intelligence Centre

Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to be worth $22.17 trillion to the global economy by 2030, but poorly developed AI solutions can have serious consequences, from data and privacy breaches to ethical issues.

Because of this, it's critical that AI systems are designed responsibly right from the very beginning. Organisations that design responsible AI systems will not only stand out from the competition but will likely win market share based on their ability to earn and retain trust from the communities they serve.

To ensure Australian businesses are equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to responsibly create these systems, the National AI Centre's (NAIC) Responsible AI Network (RAIN) will host a series of workshops to guide attendees through the design process.

The first event in this series, 'Introduction to Responsible AI Engineering’ will walk you through the development and application of responsible AI.
