AI and Cyber for SME Growth Symposium
22 June 2021 - 24 June 2021
CSIRO is excited to present the AI and Cyber for SME Growth Symposium 2021. We invite you to participate in this Symposium delivered through in-person hubs in Sydney (22 June), Melbourne (23 June) and Adelaide (24 June) and connected to other parts of Australia via a remote link.
The Symposium invites a variety of SMEs, R&D organisations and academic institutions to present, brainstorm, workshop and connect through various topics in the AI and Cyber domains. This will enable Australian SMEs to better understand how those technologies and digital innovations could be used and can equip them to grow within a digitally enabled environment. We are aiming to bring about greater awareness of SME engagement in the AI and cyber space to create a collaborative Australian network. The Symposium will bring together the most critical stakeholders in this space to help SMEs understand how to manage risks in leveraging opportunities presented in the AI and cyber (cyber security and cyber physical systems) digital technologies spaces. Discussions will include the complexity, criticality and capability requirements of AI and Cyber, as new models of engagement lower technology adoption barriers, and new business and partnership models emerge around R&D driven organisations and universities. The Symposium will facilitate communication and collaboration between research and the Australian SME ecosystem, and grow SMEs’ digital capabilities.
Participation in the Symposium is free of charge, but registration is required. Registered participants will have access to:
- Talks by AI and cyber experts
- Workshops on leveraging AI and cyber within the digital domain
- Business pitch hackathon
- Social networking functions (limited to in-person participants)
