NSW AI Assurance Framework to take effect in March

The NSW Government has announced that a new Artificial Intelligence Assurance Framework will come into effect in March.

The new framework has been designed to allow agencies across the government to ensure increasingly sophisticated AI systems are safe, effective and delivering on state outcomes.

The framework was developed as part of the state government’s AI Strategy, which also included the formation of a dedicated AI Advisory Committee chaired by the NSW Government’s Chief Data Scientist, Dr Ian Oppermann. The committee helped guide the development of the framework.

Dr Oppermann said the framework will ensure government services using AI are easy to access and use by customers as well as being personalised and secure.

“AI creates a huge opportunity to improve government services. We are already piloting the technology with eHealth NSW to help doctors to earlier identify sepsis in patients attending emergency departments," he said.

"The framework lays the foundation for appropriate use of AI systems, which in turn means new ways of delivering government services in NSW. AI can be used to drive the state’s economy by helping businesses to grow and could solve some of the state’s most complex challenges, from supporting vulnerable residents to detecting fraud in the banking sector.”
