Hassan Noura | Australia's automation opportunity

Hassan Noura | Australia

Powerful new automation technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced robotics are transforming the Australian economy and how we work, presenting an enormous opportunity for national and personal income growth.

McKinsey & Company published in their latest report Australia’s automation opportunity: reigniting productive and inclusive income growth that automation technologies could add up to $4 trillion to Australia’s economy over the next 15 years and provide every Australian with up to $15,000 in additional income by 2030. However, the potential scale and distributional impacts need to be carefully managed to ensure we accelerate automation and adoption in an inclusive way.

Q&A | The rights of Indigenous people

Q&A | The rights of Indigenous people

New thinking, critical reforms and determined steps are required if we are to live up to our international obligations and our shared responsibility to ensure ours is a society, an economy, and a Federation in which First Nation peoples thrive.

As we negotiate a future Australia, the value of title and ownership are disputed and the price of injustice is questioned. Many are committed to deliver on responsibilities in an equitable society and to support the aspirations for truth, voice and agreement as articulated in the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
