"It's a quick turnaround to the autumn.

The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine dominance has been delayed in Australia . The irony of building an industry to create autonomous machines to take on human roles is that the process needs a lot of skilled people.

The irony of building an industry to create autonomous machines to take on human roles is that the process needs a lot of skilled people.

And while there's been a big increase in AI jobs in Australia over the last two years, there aren't enough people to fill them, according to the world’s biggest job site Indeed.

The skills gap is growing. Over the last 12 months the number of AI roles in Australia has increased by of 306%.

But Indeed’s data also reveals there are almost twice as many AI jobs available as there are suitable applicants, with a ratio of 1.73 roles available per candidate searching in the last quarter.

Billion dollar deal for NRL players

  Billion dollar deal for NRL players The NRL and Rugby League Players association have reached a billion-dollar agreement, securing the playing future of the game's eliteNRL CEO Todd Greenberg has praised the NRL Players association for their professionalism during negotiations in reaching an historic pay deal.

Workers in South Australia are seen as the most vulnerable to having their job replaced by a machine . While, for the most part, Adzuna found that lower-skilled roles were at most risk, it said that white collar workers will not be immune to the rise of the machines , noting that accountancy roles

switch to the Australia edition. While experienced market players might have been able to stabilise the crash by playing a longer game, the machines , faced with uncertainty, got out as quickly as possible.

Interest in AI roles has risen by 463% in the past two years, but not high enough to meet the seventeen-fold surge in postings.

This chart shows how demand for those with AI skills has risen but interest in roles hasn't kept pace:

China is building a police station powered by AI, not humans

  China is building a police station powered by AI, not humans China this week announced an AI-powered unmanned police station will open in one of its capitol cities, proving once again that no other country quite embraces artificial intelligence like it does. The station appears to be designed with driver and vehicle related matters in mind, making it more like a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) than a cop shop. It will provide driver’s examinations via simulator, registration services, and feature advanced face-scanning technology developed by Tencent, according to a report from Chinese financial paper Caijing Neican.

Tenere had been making them for two years, at two separate mechanical presses, where workers fed 6-by-7 inch pieces of flat aluminum into the machine , pressed two buttons simultaneously, and then extracted the metal — now bent at the edges.

The machine was “a power inimical” to the worker, created “for the sole purpose of supplying capital with weapons against the revolts of the working class” — and here Marx singles out the self-acting mule, an early example of automation. Australia .

Research from Accenture shows that if Australian businesses were to embrace AI technologies the country could benefit from a $400 billion increase in GDP by 2035, increasing the annual economic growth rate from 2.2% to 3.7%.

"To put that another way, successful AI scaling will almost halve the time it takes for the Australian economy to double in size," says a study by Accenture on the role of Artificial Intelligence.

"It’s a huge boost by any measure. However, it’s notable that Australia lags many of the world’s other leading economies in scaling the emerging technologies essential to AI adoption."

According to Indeed, while AI job searches might be up 463% since 2015, 30% of those searches are being conducted offshore as Aussie talent looks for better career opportunities overseas.

Typical roles in AI include Machine Learning Engineers and Software Developers in areas as diverse as banking, universities and commerce. In most cases applicants require previous experience and a degree in a subject like maths or physics, although some may even have qualifications in machine learning.

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service

  IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service IBM has been offering quantum computing as a cloud service since last year when it came out with a 5 qubit version of the advanced computers. Today, the company announced that it's releasing 20-qubit quantum computers, quite a leap in just 18 months. A qubit is a single unit of quantum information. define("homepageFinanceIndices", ["c.deferred"], function () { var quotesInArticleFormCode = "PRMQAP"; var config = {}; config.indexdetailsurl = "/en-au/money/indexdetails"; config.stockdetailsurl = "/en-au/money/stockdetails"; config.funddetailsurl = "/en-au/money/funddetails"; config.

Those are the 'initials' imprinted on the elemental shards. Below the initials are a rank marking of some sort. The machinations you destroyed in the Burning Steppes were of 'Rank IV.' I assume that this is a lowly rank.

Australia ’s Fairfax Media and Nine Entertainment will merge. Their business is not so much making new sorts of minds as it is removing some of the need for the old sort, by taking tasks that used to be things which only people could do and making them amenable to machines .

But despite the sector paying well -- the average annual salary for a Machine Learning Engineer is $122,566 -- the availability of workers with suitable skills simply isn’t keeping up with demand.

Machine learning engineer jobs make up 42% of all AI searches in Australia while 29% of searches are looking for data scientist roles.

"Employers in every sector are keen to utilise artificial intelligence and need workers with the right skills to fill these roles," says Chris McDonald, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand for Indeed.

"Our data shows that competition for this shallow pool of candidates is fierce, with the numbers of available roles outstripping potential new hires.

“The AI sector is likely to keep growing as the potential for the widespread application of the technology, across different industries, becomes more clear. Investing in education and the right skills needed to propel the industry forward will be key to its growth in the coming years.”
