Designing trustworthy machine learning systems
Op-ed: Many methods have been developed to promote fairness, transparency and accountability in the predictions made by artificial intelligence and machine learning systems. A technical approach is often the focal point of these methodologies, however, to develop truly ethical machine learning systems that can be trusted by their users, it's important to supplement this with a human-centred approach.
Explore CSIRO’s Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder with their digital twin
By applying state-of-the-art computer graphics, simulation, virtual reality and augmented reality, researchers from CSIRO’s Data61 in collaboration with CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS), CSIRO’s Information Management and Technology (IM&T) and UNSW’s Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre) have designed a digital twin of one of Australia’s largest radio telescopes.
Track your pet’s movements in real-time with this smart collar
After releasing a 'fit bit for cows' in 2018, Ceres Tag in collaboration with CSIRO's Data61 are developing a prototype smart tracker for cats and dogs. The Companion Collar will be able to track an animal’s movements in real-time, sending updates to the owner’s phone whenever their pet wanders outside of a virtual boundary they established.

The future of COVID-created workplace: Insights
Prior to the pandemic, around 30 per cent of Australians worked from home at least part-time, with these numbers steadily increasing year on year. The pandemic has drastically accelerated that shift, but permanency of this switch is now being scrutinised as organisations plan their post-pandemic operations.
