Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology that enables machines to solve problems on their own without human intervention, while machine learning (ML) is a subset of AI that allows machines to learn from past data without explicit programming.
Developing and commercialising AI is expected to add more than $22 trillion to the global economy by 2030, while digital innovations including AI could contribute $315 billion to Australia’s GDP by 2030. Spending on AI systems in Australia is expected to grow to more than $3.6 billion by 2025.
