New AI Adopt Centre appointment

ARM Hub and its partners welcome news of their appointment as an AI Adopt Centre ...

The ARM Hub is collaborating with more than 30 organisations to create the ARM Hub AI Adopt Centre.

The ARM Hub AI Adopt Centre is one of four new centres announced by Australian Government Minister for Industry and Science, the Hon Ed Husic today.

ARM Hub Founder and CEO Professor Cori Stewart said the centre will be a pathway for Australia’s SMEs to become global innovation leaders.

“ARM Hub and its partners are thrilled to continue their work in fostering a world-class AI ecosystem in Australia that embraces safe and responsible AI and is focused on commercialisation and business growth,” Professor Stewart said.

“Australia’s SME manufacturers know that AI can be a major source of sustained value-add and enhanced global competitiveness. Given SMEs represent 93% of Australian business, it is imperative that they can capitalise on the benefits of AI to scale-up and grow.

“The use of modern data platforms in Australian manufacturing is critical to effective scaling-up and business growth and the creation of a ‘smart’ and resilient workforce. The ARM Hub AI Adopt Centre will provide a joined-up service that demonstrates how data and AI can modernise business, build skills and boost productivity.”
