Digital government summit next week

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) will welcome digital technology experts from Australia and overseas in Canberra next Wednesday to explore how technology is transforming government service delivery.

During the annual Navigating Digital Government Summit, a panel of speakers will explore how advanced technologies such as AI, machine learning, robotics and quantum computing will influence the future design of government services.

Speakers will include Dr Genevieve Bell, a researcher from the ANU and the CSIRO’s Data61 and the first female Intel Senior Fellow. Bell will discuss whether digital transformation represents a fundamental restructuring of technology, markets and cultural forces.

The afternoon keynote will be delivered by the Palo Alto Research Center’s Aki Ohashi, who will discuss the cutting-edge field of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). The summit will also include an address during the dinner session from Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation Angus Taylor.

Other notable speakers will include DTA Interim EO Nerida O’Loughlin, AUSTRAC Senior Data Scientist Tania Churchill, AIIA Data Analytics Special Interest Group Chair Roger Kermode, as well as representatives from Dell EMC, Salesforce, HPE, EY and AMP Capital.
