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.
Spotlight on Women in Tech: Dr Monica Wen Chen
We’re speaking to Dr Monica Wen Chen, an award-winning AI research scientist in the Decision Making Under Uncertainty group within the Analytics and Decision Sciences Program here at CSIRO’s Data61. Dr Chen discusses her career path, what she’s currently working on, one of the biggest changes that needs to take place in the tech industry and her advice on breaking into the world of data science.
AI-powered spinal segmentation technology could ‘save radiologists and surgeons thousands of hours of work’
A new AI-powered piece of medtech segments spinal vertebrae, partner Singular Health anticipates a 95% accuracy in two minutes, which could enable medical professionals to better plan their surgeries.
AI can now learn to influence human behaviour
Artificial intelligence (AI) is learning more about how to work with (and on) humans. A recent study has shown how […]

How machine learning is detecting seizures in people with traumatic brain injuries
By applying sensors, machine learning and energy harvesting technology, researchers at CSIRO, CSIRO’s Data61 and Australian medical device company Anatomics could prevent the development of seizure disorders in patients that have undergone decompressive surgery (craniectomy) through the creation of a data-driven and highly personalised treatment plan.
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.
Eight papers accepted at world’s most prestigious machine learning conference
Eight papers detailing bleeding-edge machine learning research written by scientists from CSIRO’s Data61 and collaborators have been accepted by NeurIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems) 2020, the largest and most prestigious machine learning conference in the world.
