In her role as Managing Director, Sarah Adam-Gedge is setting the vision and direction for Avanade Australia with a clear agenda for ensuring its expert teams with deep specialist Microsoft knowledge deliver outstanding solutions for clients.
In a recent article in the Financial Review, Sarah has now commented on the part Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play in the future of Australia’s workforce.
Embracing AI at Avanade
Following a survey undertaken by Avanade Australia, Sarah Adam-Gedge believes the country is already way behind in AI advances. She proposed that the government really needs to provide more incentives for businesses to automate whilst also offering more to companies offshore to invest in Australia, stating “It could be lower corporate tax rates or it could be a policy change or focusing investment into an industry where Australia already enjoys some competitive advantage such as healthcare or agriculture."
The survey, which was discussed at a recent AI roundtable co-hosted by The Australian Financial Review and the Australian Computer Society (ACS), implied that organisations could not drive any more productivity out of traditional optimisation approaches such as industrialisation and labour arbitrage and that AI-driven automation could in fact drive human productivity and and therefore prosperity globally.
