The following can be attributed to Professor Webb:

“The Australian government is to be commended on the considered and practical approach they are taking to the real and immediate risks associated with AI. Vested interests are generating much hysteria and overblown hyperbole. But we can sleep assured that there is no risk that we will be subjugated by AI overlords. Nonetheless, there are many current risks associated with the current technologies.


“I am cautious about exactly how effective mandatory labelling of AI generated content would be. It is unlikely to stop bad actors, such as a foreign power seeking to disrupt an Australian election or referendum.


“The best way to ensure that Australia is not left at the mercy of the foreign interests that currently control these technologies is to increase Australian workforce training and investment in Australian AI research and development.”
