ignite+Deakin: How artificial intelligence (AI) can stimulate growth and investment

Industry 4.0 refers to the fourth industrial revolution and the trend of improved artificial intelligence (AI), automation and continued technological improvements.

What is the impact of AI on business and manufacturing in particular? What does it really mean for Victorian business? There are many doomsday scenarios of human redundancy and economic collapse but Deakin University sees the emergence of AI as undoubtedly a disruptor, but one that can be leveraged to enhance growth and job opportunities.

Deakin has established the Applied Artificial Intelligence Institute (A2I2) led by Australian Laureate Professor, and world-renowned AI expert, Svetha Venkatesh. Working with other research centres at Deakin, A2I2 looks to optimise material design and industrial processes. The aim is not to reduce employment, but to drive competitiveness through greater productivity.

Join us at ignite+Deakin to hear from thought leaders from the university and its partners. Learn how Deakin has been able to adapt to disruption and apply those lessons and modern data analysis techniques to stimulate economic growth and investment in Victoria.
