South Australia’s getting tech-savvy as the tech giant Google joins the Lot Fourteen hub.

It has been confirmed that Google Cloud is setting up shop at Lot Fourteen and will be their hub for Google Cloud’s Adelaide-based Public Sector team and will also be a training and event place for both customers and employees to work with their technology.

Premier Steven Marshall said it was a great accomplishment that Google Cloud has decided to invest right here in South Australia.

“This is now the third global company to choose South Australia as its home, creating thousands of jobs in the high-tech, digital, space and defence industries.”

“South Australia has world-leading capabilities in AI, data analytics and cyber security that make us globally interesting and provides digital tech companies with an opportunity to come together to partner on projects that can literally change the world we live in,” Premier Marshall said.

Google is expected to focus initially on health research and technology, including collaboration with the SA Health and Medical Research Institute.

Minister for Trade and Investment Stephen Patterson said SA is becoming one of the best places to do business globally.

“We are building a world-class innovation ecosystem that’s underpinned by a competitive business environment that gets the fundamentals right for all businesses.

“Google Cloud joins a line-up of international hi-tech companies investing in South Australia in recent years including; Accenture, Amazon Web Services, and MIT.

“By working closely with industry to enhance our hi-tech capability across key sectors, we are attracting the best of the best from around the world.”

Let’s hope with all these tech giants moving in that we get dibs on flying cars first.
