The James Martin Institute for Public Policy (JMI) has released “Leadership for Responsible AI: A Constructive Agenda for NSW.” The result of a JMI Collaborative Project with policymakers and experts, the report outlines areas where NSW can take a leadership role in regulating and shaping the AI market while building public sector capabilities.

The NSW Government is widely recognised as a global digital leader, and the state benefits from 41 per cent of all Australian software and application programmers and 45 per cent of all Australian AI businesses. An effective agenda on AI is necessary for NSW to remain so – capable of attracting talent and investment in support of inclusive economic growth and ensuring technological advances deliver better outcomes for the state’s diverse communities.

The challenges posed by AI to the rights and interests of people and communities will require leveraging and improving existing laws and policies, and considering new regulations. The report outlines measures to ensure that AI development and use is representative, equitable, and ethically sound.

The report outlines 15 concrete policy opportunities where NSW policymakers could make a step-change on AI, including proposing the creation of an Emerging Technology Commissioner.
