Spotlight on Women in Tech: Dr Petra Kuhnert
Statistician Dr Petra Kuhnert loves solving gnarly problems. Her work enables decision-makers to make fast, informed decisions under volatile and dynamic conditions. This International Women's Day, we spoke with Petra about how she is harnessing data and AI to improve the quality of decisions made about Australian agriculture and the environment.
Summer of Science: Meet three of our vacation students
Hear first-hand what spending your summer at CSIRO’s Data61 is like from three of our vacation students. Taj Wedutenko, Olivia Dry and Cedar Lett are part of a cohort of 50 undergraduates working alongside our world-leading researchers to tackle some of our most pressing digital challenges.
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.
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.
Coastal hazard assessment tool wins national environment and sustainability award
The Port Phillip Coast Hazard Assessment project, conducted by CSIRO’s Data61 in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), has received the Environment and Sustainability award at both the Victorian and National APSEA Industry Awards, held separately in March this year.
New version of Spark to be used nation-wide to model and predict bushfires
