“Harnessing its potential and ensuring its responsible use is important. The UNSW AI Institute is a platform to help connect UNSW AI researchers with each other and the rest of the world,” Professor Aziz said.

“We have a wealth of world-class researchers working on fundamental AI problems or applying AI techniques to their respective domains. The main consideration for setting up the institute was to make sure that we capitalise on our strengths and make it easier for the world to engage with us.”

UNSW says prominent AI academics and leading AI industry experts will attend the launch, including Stela Solar, the Director of the National AI Center at CSIRO’s Data61; Professor Peter Bartlett, Head of Research at Google Australia; Professor Toby Walsh, Chief Scientist at the UNSW AI Institute; and Dr Ian Oppermann, Chief Data Scientist at the NSW Department of Customer Service.
