ChatRegs23 will be held on the Gadigal lands of the Eora nation. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This land is the site of the oldest continuing culture in the world and the most enduring system of living knowledge.
AI Policy Workshop
19th july 2023
The Faculty of Science
AI Policy workshop
AI regulations for Australia
We are bringing together a wide range of people researching the risks and ethical impacts of AI and those working on how we can responsibly adopt these technologies into Australia.
Responding to Government calls
On 1st June, the Department of Industry, Science and Resources (DISR) announced two discussion papers on the governance and regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in Australia.
The government feedback form is open till 26th July 2023 and consists of 20 questions. Speakers and participants will be discussing these questions at the workshop.
The workshop is designed to facilitate conversation amongst diverse experts that might not normally come together to share their perspectives on AI policy in Australia. Attendee expertise includes AI, policy, law, social science, business, philosophy, computer science, neuroscience, education, and more. For some GenAI fun, anonymous comments will be collected via an app, fed into GPT-4, aggregated then given back to the participants to "Grade the Machine" on how well it captured the room's voice and zeitgeist.
You may register for the waitlist on Eventbrite: ChatRegs23If you have registered and can no longer attend, please cancel your registration so we can give your spot to someone else, thank you.
F23 Administration building
The F23 buidling is on the corner of City Road and Eastern Avenue on the Camperdown Campus.
Workshop section 4 (Q's 12-20). Each table will be allocated four-five to focus on. Only do the rest if you have extra time.

Each table cluster at the workshop will form a little 'campfire'. We are using an app to collect your anonymous comments to create a shared repository and feed all those comments into GPT-4 for aggregation. The app (Padlet) allows you to see the comments that others are making in real-time. Sharing comments in real-time with the whole room is too much; contributing on solo forms is too isolating. You will be able to see all the comments from your table participants in real-time as you chat across the table.
Everyone expresses themselves differently, so we want to capture your way of describing the conversation at the table. Even if you are saying the same thing as someone else, still type it into the Padlet in your own words. GenAI models are sensitive to different prompts, including wording, punctuation, and spelling. Also, if many people express similar sentiments, that is likely to impact how the model aggregates the sentiment of the room.
You can sit at any table you like. You can sit with your colleagues if you prefer, but we do suggest sitting at a campfire with people you don't know, or know less. The idea is to hear different perspectives on these topics. All comments are entered into GPT-4 for aggregation. After the event we will share all of the anonymous comments with all participants.
Each Campfire (table) has their own links to access their shared space. Make sure you click on the link for your table.
To learn the meaning of your campfire name and how to pronounce it, you can go to this website.
Grade the machine!
After each workshop section your comments are fed into GPT-4. We will present back to you the language model's aggregated comments. Then we want you to grade how well you think the machine did at capturing the zeitgeist. We will guide you when to do this.
