Research output: Contribution to journalNewspaper ArticleProfessional


Artificial intelligence is set to impact 1.3 billion iPhone users as Apple integrates ChatGPT into Siri, enhancing its functionality. This move raises questions about AI's broader implications on employment. While Elon Musk envisions a future where AI could render most jobs obsolete, necessitating universal basic income, many experts believe AI will instead transform the job market by automating routine tasks and creating new opportunities. Historical trends show technology often generates new industries and jobs. AI’s potential to augment human capabilities is evident in fields like education, healthcare, and marketing, where it can handle administrative tasks and enhance creativity. However, the ethical and legal challenges of AI, such as data privacy and misuse, require robust regulatory frameworks. For Australia, investing in AI capacity, developing public sector models, and fostering international collaborations are essential for leveraging AI's benefits and ensuring security and reliability in its applications.
