NSW government is calling on artificial intelligence (AI) experts to join a new committee that will advise on the appropriate use of the technology in the state.

The AI advisory committee, which is the first of its kind for any federal, state, or territory government in Australia, was a key commitment in NSW’s inaugural AI strategy.

Chaired by the NSW government’s chief data scientist Dr. Ian Opperman, the eight-person committee will play a central role in the development of the state’s AI assurance framework.

The framework will be used to determine the level of risk based on the data that the solution is using and the types of decisions it will generate.

The advice provided by committee members, who will be appointed for up to a period of two years, will also be used to build community trust by helping agencies manage and mitigate risk.

“It’s an exciting time to contribute to shaping the emergence of AI implementation across the NSW public sector and create the world’s most customer-centric government,” the expression of interest reads.
