The Albanese Government is taking further steps to ensure the growth of artificial intelligence technologies (AI) in Australia is safe and responsible.

Joint media release with the Minister for Skills and Training, the Hon Brendan O'Connor
Australia’s tech workforce has grown 8 per cent in the past 12 months, putting the nation on track to achieve the Government’s goal of 1.2 million technology related jobs by 2030. 

Five Australian companies will share in almost $5 million to develop new digital technologies which will help make compliance and service delivery easier. 

A Dark Matter Road trip, sharing First Nations science and drone coding are just some of the projects receiving a share of close to $500,000 in grants to support National Science Week.

The Australian Government has updated the List of Critical Technologies that will help secure Australia’s future.

Locally developed and manufactured technologies will play a critical role in Australia’s transformation into a renewable energy superpower.

The jobs of tomorrow depend on the decisions we make today. That’s why in this Budget, the Albanese Government is investing more than $500 million to lay the foundations for future economic growth in science and industry.

Australia has been a global pioneer in cutting-edge quantum research for decades.

Now we need to translate that advantage into thriving quantum industries that boost our economic competitiveness and help solve our biggest national challenges.

That’s why the Albanese government is today releasing Australia’s first National Quantum Strategy.
