Knowledge is Power

The free ‘Introduction to Artificial Intelligence’ course provided by CSIRO National AI Centre (NAIC) will cover what AI is, common terminologies, real-world applications of AI, Australian AI case studies, advice from industry experts to start your career in AI, and more. The two-and-a-half-hour course provides a non-technical introduction to AI fundamentals and is designed for people at the beginning their AI literacy journey. This makes it ideal for workers seeking to upskill, individuals starting their career in AI, and small to medium business owners. No programming or computer science background is required for students to enrol, and the virtual nature of this course facilitates an easier path for Australians to upskill in AI, whenever and wherever they choose. Students will receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the course – Register for the course.

Consumers Federation of Australia (CFA) engages with these issues by supporting a representative to the Standards Australia technical committee IT-043 Artificial intelligence as part of the CFA standards Project.  The committee is involved in the development of standards for AI including AS ISO/IEC 42001:2023 – Information technology – Artificial intelligence – Management system, a new global AI management system that addresses the need for consistency and ethical implementation of AI.

Why are standards important? and  Why should I get involved?
