The program will create a network of AI Adopt Centres, aimed at establishing a ‘front door’ for SMEs looking to explore responsible and safe adoption and usage of AI.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • support the safe and responsible adoption, implementation, and demonstration of real-world applications of AI technologies to address sectoral and local challenges
  • support SMEs to responsibly integrate AI products that assist in development of new or improved products and services
  • improve Australia’s future prosperity and our productivity growth by increasing AI adoption in SMEs and upskilling Australian workers in the usage of AI technologies

This includes engagement with the National Artificial Intelligence Centre and the Responsible AI Network to build a cohesive and comprehensive network
  • provide equity of access to SMEs nation-wide who are operating within the identified sectoral area, aligned to the National Reconstruction Fund priorities
  • create further opportunity for growth in the AI technology market through a broad increase in international demand for Australian AI capabilities
  • positively impact participation of underrepresented cohorts in technology, including women, First Nations Australians, and those with disability
  • support the Australian Government in reaching its target of 1.2 million tech-related jobs by 2030.
