IoT turbo-charged by AI, advanced robotics, automated vehicles incorporating sensing data with other datasets, powerful big data analytics like machine learning driving automated decision-making.
However you choose to paint the picture, the collection of technologies we are currently calling artificial intelligence (AI) is heralding the next industrial revolution. Some of these tools are new, some have been refined over preceding decades. However we are now seeing their rapid convergence into systems – cyber-physical systems – that will have unprecedented impact on humanity through deep economic, social and cultural shifts.
To face challenges like these head on, the ANU strategic plan outlines the need for new education models and new pathways towards commercial and social applications for ANU research, via structures adjacent to established research and teaching programs. Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell was appointed the first of the new ANU Entrepreneurial Fellows and founded the Autonomy, Agency and Assurance (3A) Institute in September 2017 on these principles.
