Who is building, managing and decommissioning our Ai-enabled future?
This question is at the heart of our mission. Located within the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University we are guiding and accelerating into existence a new branch of engineering centred on cyber-physical systems and artificial intelligence. Our mission is to build the skills and knowledge we need to help shape the future safely, sustainably, responsibly.
In 2021, 3Ai will have a home in the new ANU School of Cybernetics. Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell will be the Director of both the School of Cybernetics and 3Ai. Our team will transition into this new school in early 2021, and over time we will add Systems and Design capability to our portfolio in the school. More details to come.
Are you interested in joining us at the School of Cybernetics? We are recruiting!
Why do we need a newbranch of engineering?
As people invent, commercialise and operationalise new technologies, new practitioners emerge to manage them. Just as the invention of programmable computers led to the professionalisation of software engineers, cyber-physical systems will lead to a new type of engineer.
We don’t know what this new type of engineering will be called yet, but we know we need it if we are to build a safe, sustainable and responsible future.
And we know that we need to be explicit about values along the way. So we are shaping a different set of conversations about people and technology, conversations that will include voices from unexpected places.
How else can we navigate this data-driven, digital world, and make it into a place that reflects all our humanity, all our cultures and all our cares, and ensures that we are responsible custodians of planet earth?
How will we get there?
This new era will demand new ways of thinking.
