Impact and media – Issue 5

By July 10th, 2018

May was a busy month for Data61, with several announcements and media stories showcasing our diverse expertise:

  • CSIRO’s Data61 was a major sponsor at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), where our robotics technology was on display. The event had widespread media coverage on television and print and digital media. We published a blog post on our robot family and our trip to the Amazon rainforest
  • We participated in the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s National Privacy Week with a series of videos featuring our CEO, Adrian Turner. We also wrote opinion pieces for media outlets . We supported the launch of the Immersive Environments Lab, a purpose-built facility for augmented reality and 3D web systems research. There was coverage of the event in ABC Radio Canberra and a story in the Canberra Times , and we wrote a blog entitled Reality bytes: How Augmented Reality will change our lives.
  • We supported the Pint of Science communication events, with talks from Data61 experts and support from our staff.
