Changing the world with augmented creativity

We're seeking brilliant and highly motivated students to work on an Australian Research Council-funded project.Our goal is to transform augmented reality (AR) from a hyper-specialised tool for power users, into an enabler of creativity, socialisation, and new forms of community.We will reimagine augmented reality, from the current hyper-specialised tool for power users, into an enabler of creativity and imagination. We seek to engage with artists, designers, musicians, to explore new forms of creativity, art, and performance.

Value-based design of artificial intelligence technologies (AI) for service delivery

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are being increasingly deployed across a range of services. However, embedding public values (e.g. effectiveness, efficiency, fairness, and privacy) in theDesign of these technologies is often complex. Not sufficiently supporting these values leads to service delivery failure and ethical and societal issues affecting service applicants. The project will outline and validate guiding principles for the design of major types of AI technologies to support generating public value through these technologies. The project will need to use …

AI for wildlife conservation

Automated detection of animals using machine learning (AI) from drones and camera traps is creating powerful new opportunities for ecological research. Working as part of a team you will learn how to enable and use automated ID in imagery, use these tools to answer questions around wildlife abundance and interactions and help to shape new research directions. We work with a diverse range of species and you may have the opportunity to work on koalas, kangaroos and other macropods, lions, …

Advanced artificial intelligence based ultrasound imaging applications

Our research in the space of advanced quantitative medical imaging is investigating how to use ultrasound as a real time volumetric mapping tool of human tissues, to guide in a reliable and accurate way complex medical procedures1. We have developed several novel methods which make use of the most cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology2. For example, to show where the treatment target and the organs at risk are at all times during treatments in radiation therapy3, 4; or to inform robots …
