How artificial intelligence is changing your world
The Australian, Other, 30/07/2022, Jamie Walker
Like this week’s grim economic outlook, the CSIRO’s report on megatrends that will frame the lives of Australians in the coming decades made confronting reading. From the pandemic to drug-resistant superbugs, war in Europe, trade tensions with China and climate change, the threats seem endless. Yet if there is a silver lining, it’s the potential for science to rise to the occasion, the national research agency argues. And not only through tried-and-true human ingenuity. Artificial intelligence, AI, is the hope of the side to take on some of the mind-boggling challenges shaping CSIRO’s thinking about the next 20 years.
