Australian National University 3Ai Institute new applied science program

The world needs new ways to enable the safe, ethical and effective design, integration, management and regulation of cyber-physical systems. The 3Ai Institute (3Ai) at the Australian National University (ANU) is forging this path through the creation of a new applied science.

ANU has a commitment to intellectual leadership, transformational experiences and building capacity for the 21st Century. 3Ai is a flagship of this commitment.

Located within the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science, 3Ai brings together an interdisciplinary team led by Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell, one of the world’s leading technologists and Senior Fellow at Intel.

Inspired by Silicon Valley-style rapid and iterative prototyping, the 3Ai team is developing a radical postgraduate curriculum to inform the creation of this new applied science.

We are seeking student participants to undertake, and be involved in prototyping these immersive postgraduate courses. The 3Ai courses will be delivered in an accelerated time frame and will serve as a pilot for a formal, named suite of degrees from 2020.We will cover the tuition fees for each student enrolled in the pilot cohort, to offset some of the cost of taking a year out to help build Australia’s future.

The challenge that AI presents our society calls for training that will profoundly disrupt the educational status quo. It will be an intensive, research-driven, collaborative and participatory experiment in shaping the new applied science through an educational lens.

By trialling how we would teach the new applied science together with our participants we aim to challenge, inform and refine the intellectual framework and core tenets that form its skeleton.

We have shaped a coordinated curriculum of courses for 2019. We are looking for a cohort of dedicated, risk-taking participants to undertake, challenge and iterate on these courses with us, to enhance the curriculum for the next generation of students.

Applications will now be accepted until 11.59pm (AET) on 7 October 2018.
