It's very concerning that if you invest $5 billion as a multinational you then get a contract for AI when there are Australian companies that can do the exact same thing. The draft exposure legislation for the Defence trade controls amendment would prohibit Australian companies from selling their AI tech to a wide range of countries. Is this restriction of Australian AI exports related to the government's new partnerships with Microsoft?
