How we are creating change
The project set out practical, innovative, and long-term policy options for the NSW Government. It brought together various AI experts from multiple domains, including academia, industry, and civil society.
The policy opportunities outlined in the report are timely and directly relevant to other jurisdictions in Australia. With other states and the Commonwealth government currently working on actions they can take to regulate and influence the development and use of AI, the approaches outlined in the report can support these efforts by offering concrete avenues for reform for policymakers in other jurisdictions to consider.
In addition to crafting transformative policy options, the report generated an evidence base for potential policy development in a complex and rapidly evolving field.
By bringing together a wide range of researchers, industry experts and senior NSW policymakers, the project also created opportunities for collaborative idea exploration and exchange.
The report was launched at the 2023 NSW Future of AI Summit and received positive feedback from senior NSW Government policymakers and researchers. Its findings and policy opportunities are now being considered by digital policy leaders in the NSW Government.
