Background:

Technical guidance is required for GRDC’s initial investment in machine learning (ML) capacity and capability, and regarding ML’s application in the grains industry going forwards. The Technical Consultation Group (TCG) will strengthen GRDC’s capability to be an effective, discerning, investor by:

• Peer-reviewing the overall approach(es) and feasibility of ML use-cases in this investment, whilst not encroaching on use-case IP.

The TCG will also:

• Consult with GRDC regarding use-case opportunities

• Provide a platform for developing linkages to external (domestic and international) ML expertise, including in non-grains areas such as engineering, defence, manufacturing, transport and logistics, and finance

• Serve as a ML knowledge-base

Successful tenderers will interact with one another and the ML use-cases, all of whom will be represented on the TCG. The TCG will be crucial to ensuring Australian grain growers realise timely and robust benefit from investment in ML. The anticipated workload is 0.1-0.2 FTE per participating entity annually for the duration of this investment.
