Australia joins declaration on safe and responsible AI

Australia is strengthening its commitment to safe and responsible use of artificial intelligence (AI), joining a landmark Declaration on Responsible Military Use of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomy.

In an increasingly complex global environment, it is essential that AI technologies are developed and implemented responsibly.

The Declaration, an initiative of the United States, sets out practical measures to safeguard the way AI is used by militaries. It calls on states to take steps to ensure military use of AI is consistent with obligations under international and humanitarian law, involves adequate training and employs appropriate safeguards.

Deputy Prime Minister, Richard Marles, and Minister for Industry and Science, Ed Husic, both attended the United Kingdom’s recent AI Safety Summit.

Australia’s participation reflected the Government’s strong record of contributing to the safe and responsible use of AI, including through joint initiatives between government, industry and academia.
