The Australian government is providing AU$31.8 million to the Australian Research Council to study responsible, ethical, and inclusive autonomous decision-making technologies.
The Center of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society, which will be based at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), will house researchers who will work with experts from seven other Australian universities, as well as 22 academic and industry partner organizations in Australia, Europe, Asia, and the U.S.
