The NSW Government will work with the Commonwealth to allow greater movement of agriculture workers between States.


 
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said while it¡¯s disappointing a number of States did not sign on to the framework proposed at National Cabinet today, NSW will look to implement the principles of the new Agricultural Workers¡¯ Code.


 


¡°Notwithstanding that National Cabinet could not reach a consensus on this issue, NSW will work towards new rules to allow movement of agriculture workers to benefit our regional communities,¡± Ms Berejiklian said.


 


¡°I thank the Deputy Premier and the NSW Minister for Agriculture for their work and their advocacy on this issue.


 
¡°Subject to the health advice, we want to be able to provide more certainty for farmers and agriculture workers in NSW. We're expecting a bumper harvest in many parts of the State this year and I don¡¯t want our farmers and agriculture workers to lose that opportunity.¡±


 
Deputy Premier John Barilaro said NSW will continue to work towards ensuring our State¡¯s agriculture sector has the workforce it needs to keep powering ahead in the midst of improving seasonal conditions.
 


¡°NSW is an agriculture production powerhouse and this needs to continue to help the economy recover after COVID-19, and bring many communities and farmers back from the brink after years of drought,¡± Mr Barilaro said. 


 
¡°These measures will make sure that we seize the opportunity to convert a potentially huge harvest into dollars for our farmers.¡±


 
The NSW Government will work with the Commonwealth, Victoria and South Australia on the implementation of the principles of the new code including:


¡¤         Ensuring the agriculture industry, ancillary services and activities is not unnecessarily impeded by border arrangements for the movement of workers.


¡¤         Applying health and safety practices in the agriculture industry, services and activities as appropriate to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission and support responsiveness where transmission occurs.


¡¤         Allowing movement across borders will provide for animal health and welfare and biosecurity to be maintained.

 FIRST NSW AI STRATEGY TO MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR CITIZENS


 
An artificial intelligence (AI) strategy released by the NSW Government today will create jobs and deliver smarter and better services to citizens across NSW.


 
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the strategy will create thousands of jobs across NSW including demand for IT professionals, cyber security experts, data scientists, and engineers.


 


¡°This is great news for citizens, researchers and businesses. We know how important AI is and this strategy puts us at the forefront of this emerging space,¡± Ms Berejiklian said.


 
¡°Science, technology, engineering and mathematics will play a pivotal role in shaping our State¡¯s future economy and we cannot be spectators on the sidelines. We must lead and be the engine room for future jobs.¡±
 


Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the strategy sets a bold roadmap for the trusted, tested and transparent use of AI in government services.


 
¡°Whether it¡¯s at home, online, on the road or at the supermarket, the use of AI is becoming more prevalent in day-to-day life and is often deployed in subtle ways to make customer interactions and services more seamless,¡± Mr Dominello said.
 


¡°This strategy brings together the three key pillars of privacy, transparency and security, within the prism of ethics.¡±
 


A new body, the NSW Government AI Review Committee, will be established to oversee the use of AI across government. The Committee will be chaired by the NSW Government Chief Data Scientist, Ian Oppermann and work with all government agencies.
 


The strategy also prioritises the development of AI skills in government and will strengthen industry partnerships through a consistent approach to procurement of AI products and services.


 


Current examples of the use of AI in NSW Government include:


¡¤       Transport for NSW¡¯s use of AI and machine learning to anticipate required maintenance and proactively schedule downtime for maintenance, which helps increase passenger safety and equipment reliability.


¡¤       NSW Health¡¯s use of algorithms from deidentified medical records, to assist with the early detection and treatment of sepsis in emergency department waiting rooms, which helps to save patient lives and improve service levels.


¡¤       NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment use drones and AI to identify and protect threatened plants and animals which is part of the Saving our Species program.


 
The AI Strategy is the third pillar of the State Government¡¯s commitment to making NSW the digital capital of the southern hemisphere, having recently launched policies on the Internet of Things and Smart Infrastructure.


 
The digital suite is secured by the record $240 million State-wide investment in cyber security, announced in June.
