How team CSIRO’s Data61 won silver at the ‘Robot Olympics’
Here, Team Leader of team CSIRO’s Data61 and Group Leader of Data61’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group Dr Navinda Kottege shares a behind-the-scenes look at the techniques, strategies, and technology the team employed during the Challenge.
How SMEs can harness the power of AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) can affect and benefit SMEs in two ways: by altering their business environment and making the conditions they do business in easier, and by helping them to change their business models and practices, leading to increased productivity and outreach, and to scale up their operations.
Spotlight on Women in Tech: Prof Sally Cripps
Prof Sally Cripps heralds the dawn of a ‘new era’ for data science, moving beyond prediction to demonstrating causality. Here, the newly appointed Research Director of our Analytics and Decision Sciences program talks about what attracted her to Data61, the projects she’s most proud of, and what she’s currently working on.
The platform our scientists used to reveal insights into SARS-CoV-2’s behaviour
A team led by Professor Sean O’Donoghue, from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and CSIRO’s Data61, has produced a resource that can assist researchers with collaboration – and also with the virus’s invisibility. They’ve recently published a paper in Molecular Systems Biology detailing what they’ve done.
How Australia becomes a global leader in digital innovation
It’s easy to be pessimistic when the latest global rankings on innovation come out, but we actually have a lot to be positive about. When it comes to emerging digital technologies, Australia is performing rather well. Take artificial intelligence as an example.
On the road to world-class transport system management
Decisions which previously relied on the manual integration of a dozen distinct systems/datasets at Transport for NSW can be made using one intelligent system. The result: a first of its kind system driving Sydney, and Australia, towards a smarter, safer and cleaner commute.
Artificial intelligence is now part of our everyday lives – and its growing power is a double-edged sword
As the perils and wonders of artificial intelligence begin to permeate our lives, the ‘IPCC report for AI’ calls for action from researchers and government to ensure a safe future.
Team CSIRO’s Data61 representing Australia in ‘robot Olympics’
Team CSIRO’s Data61 will represent Australia – and the Southern Hemisphere –in the ‘robot Olympics’ this month in the United States. Experts from around the world have spent the past three years pushing the boundaries of autonomous robotic technology to map, navigate and search environments as part of the Subterranean Challenge, run by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Professor Josef Pieprzyk awarded IACR Fellowship
Professor Josef Pieprzyk of CSIRO’s Data61 can now add International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) Fellow to his list of outstanding achievements in the field of data security. Below, Josef looks back on his career milestones, most impactful research, and proudest moments, and shares some insights into his next big breakthrough.
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.
