Fusion Party announces tech entrepreneur and AI advocate Owen Miller as candidate for 2023 Aston by-election

Ferntree Gully, Australia, 27 February 2023 – The Fusion Party is excited to announce Owen Miller as its candidate for the upcoming Aston by-election on the 1st of April 2023.

Owen Miller has extensive expertise in technology and entrepreneurial innovation, having worked since 2015 at major tech firms in the United States. Now back in Melbourne, he is more committed than ever to serving his community and country. With his experience and excitement, Miller brings a fresh perspective to the political landscape.

Miller's campaign for Aston is focused on building a better world for the future, with a particular emphasis on rescuing the climate. We also recognise the importance of how the economy must adapt, especially as AI, information subversion and climate mobilisation continue to shake up the world. To address these challenges, we are advocating for the use of Universal Basic Income to provide a safety net for all Australians.

Many hard-working Australians have spent their lives tirelessly building this great country, and they deserve a comfortable retirement with dignity and financial security. Younger generations need reliable access to fulfilling jobs that contribute to the betterment of society, while automation and AI take care of the repetitive and demeaning tasks.

We will work collaboratively with the Albanese Labor government to ensure that the needs of Australians are met, but we will also hold them accountable for their actions.

Miller commented on the ongoing Robodebt Royal Commission:

"Alan Tudge has undermined the reputation of robots. They have so much more to offer to our society. If we continue to think of them as surveillance equipment and agents that we don't want to talk to, we are losing a lot of economic potential. They can be our sidekick superpowers. In the way that guide dogs assist blind people to navigate society, robot assistants can fill in for physical or cognitive impairments: they can give us thinking superpowers. We are getting left in the dust, while we are framing robots as evil spies who want to kill us, instead of embracing them as superpowers for enabling our full potential."

Owen Miller and the Fusion Party are committed to creating a better future for all Australians. We believe that by embracing the latest innovations and opportunities, we can build a stronger, more resilient country, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve the people of Aston.
