“Delivering AI outcomes and digital capability opportunities for Australian SMEs is imperative to advancing the nation’s sovereign capability; particularly in major industry sectors and growing our high-value global supply chains. The SPRINTS initiative is another way ARM Hub is delivering on our mission,” says Cori Stewart.
There is great potential for Australian manufacturer’s to perform complex tasks using AI, machine learning and deep learning. These natural partners for robotics and computer vision are solving global problems like traceability and better energy use.
With the potential to operate at greater scale and speed, Australian manufacturers can become more competitive and secure their place in sophisticated global supply chains. Accelerating this digital transformation, the ARM Hub is connecting existing industry to the nation’s best science and technology expertise and amplifying this with the SPRINTS accelerator program.
