Tech leaders in Australia are gathering virtually to discuss the roadmap for the Future of AI in the Country

Australia, Apr 19, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - World AI Show is gearing up to virtually connect the most influential voices in Australia's AI space this April. Notable speakers include the likes of Dr Kate Harrington, Head of Strategic Digital Initiatives, NSW Government Chief Information & Digital Office; Edward Santow, Human Rights Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission; Manohar Esarapu, CIO, City of Port Phillip & more.

Monday, 19 April 2021: Having hosted multiple high-level conferences across the world, World AI Show (WAIS) has established itself as the world?s biggest and elite AI show series. While it has proven itself as the quintessential AI event, World AI Show has a reputation of consistently getting global experts, investors, and cloud entrepreneurs - all under one roof.

Why Australia?

Intending to fund the development of the national AI Ethics Framework, technology roadmap, and set of standards, the Australian government has earmarked US$ 29.9 million in its 2018-19 budget for over four years to enhance the country?s efforts in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The Victorian All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence (VAPPGAI) was launched in Australia at the Parliament House on March 7, 2018. The AI parliamentary group aims to discuss the critical and transformative nature of AI from all sides of the political spectrum. AI and automation are already considered under the National Innovation Strategy and are also featured in several more recent initiatives.

"We generally talk about emerging technologies and how they impact society. But we have never seen a technology move as fast as AI and its impact on society and technology. In today's world, the playing field is poised to become a lot more competitive. Businesses that don't deploy AI and data to help them innovate will be at a huge disadvantage," said Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.

Taking place on 22 April 2021, World AI Show will feature keynotes from thought-leaders and industry experts, private networking sessions, private video meetings and more.

The show will be hosted on the virtual events platform Vmeets to help participants network and conduct business in an interactive and immersive virtual environment. Participants can also engage with speakers in Q&A sessions and network with solution providers in virtual exhibition booths, private consultation rooms and private networking rooms.

A ground-breaking collaboration of experts

Eager to keep the momentum from its previous editions, World Cloud Show will feature prominent experts such as Dan Jermyn, GM Chief Decision Scientist, Commonwealth Bank of Australia; Kshira Saagar, Chief Data Officer, Latitude Financial Services; Ruby Wolff, COO, Aramex; Ashwin Sinha, Chief Data Officer, Macquarie Bank; and Neal Cross - Co-Founder & Chairman, PictureWealth; to name a few.

#WorldAIShow - Australia will cover current topics including AI-driven digital transformation for enterprise, Accelerating and Operationalizing AI deployments within your organization, Enterprise analytics: Managing and making the most out of big data, Data visualization bringing business intelligence to life, AI & ML use cases across industries and more.

World AI Show - Australia is officially sponsored by Platinum Sponsor - Dataiku and Bronze Sponsor - Tiger Analytics.
