Look, but don’t touch: Digital Humans and performance analysis
Harnessing the power of high-performance computing, a Digital Human is a detailed replica of a person (or part of a person) and their environment. It digitally duplicates someone’s anatomy by using data from body scans and medical imaging, enabling us to evaluate the functions, movement and health of a person without putting them through invasive tests.
A 300-tonne challenge for the AI industry

How we’re using machine learning to detect coral-eating COTS
The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s most diverse and unique landscapes. Covering more than 2,900 individual reefs, it is home to unmatched marine biodiversity. A multidisciplinary group of researchers from Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, have been working on projects using innovative science and technology to help combat some of the threats facing our reef. Meet the team and learn more about their work here.
Meet our Responsible AI Science leaders
There are many benefits to Artificial Intelligence (AI) - it can make fast work of huge amounts of data, speed up processes, and collaborate with humans to provide a better outcome than either could create on their own. However, if not done ethically, the development of AI technology can come with significant risks. For this reason, the development of responsible AI sits at the heart of our work and we have brought together one of the largest groups of responsible AI researchers in the country. Meet the science leaders guiding this work.
