Background:

There is an opportunity to extract greater value from text-encoded information in resources such as GRDC reports and other publications relevant to Australian grain growers. Much grains R&D output is only accessible in text format. Taking GRDC as an example, much R&D output is only captured in project reports and communications – such information is not always easily discovered or synthesised. Machine learning (ML) could be applied to text, through Natural Language Programming. 

Such a ML solution could be packaged into a Question-Answering (QA) tool like those deployed in public and private customer service settings. The QA tool would be able to parse questions posed by growers and then draw upon machine-learnt text to provide suitable responses, improving information-delivery to growers.

Evaluation Criteria, Outcomes and Outputs:

Applications must address the evaluation criteria, outcomes, and outputs relevant to the specific procurement being applied for.
