The Gathering of Minds in New South Wales

In the sun-scorched expanses of New South Wales, a gathering not seen since the likes of ancient war councils unfolded.

Here, under the wide Australian sky, the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) orchestrated a symphony of brains and machines, a dance of future warfare, the Technical Cooperation Program Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategic Challenge.

It wasn’t just Aussies at the table – no, this was a five-nation bash, with the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and New Zealand tossing their chips into the pot.

Picture this: over 150 tech wizards, their brains wired up like Christmas trees, all huddled over screens and gadgets.
