Many organisations are keen to adopt Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to dramatically improve operational efficiency. However, evidence to date highlighted various associated challenges associated with adoption of RPA in organisations.Furthermore, recent surveys by consultant organisations found a high RPA project fail rate and their inability to meet the expected return on investment.

Online dating and the constraints of economic access

Economic access and dependency impact men and women in different ways. These impacts can be more or less pronounced at different life stages, and different for both sexes. The internet is now the number one way people find their partners, and theoretically provides participants quasi-infinite choice and unconstrained access to all potential suitors. But for many, searching for a mate, and finding that one true love is in many ways still constrained by pure economic constraints.

'Because you're worth it!' - Understanding informed consent and decision making in Australian cosmetic surgery settings

Complications after cosmetic surgery are relatively common (Khersonsky et al. 2009; Miller et al. 2018). And there is a growing consensus amongst Australian plastic surgeons that during the consent phases of patient/doctor consultation, there is potentially an issue surrounding whether patients are being fully informed about the short term and long term risks, be it medical or financial (Zuckerman & Abraham 2008; Miller et al. 2018; Van Slyke et al. 2018). While there are strict legal documents that methodically point …

Responsible urban innovation with local government artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is not only becoming an integral part of urban services, but also impacting and shaping the future of cities and societies. However, the current AI practice has shown that urban innovation without responsibility generates more problems than it solves. Especially, the absence of a deep understanding of the costs, benefits, risks, and impacts of deploying government AI systems creates negative externalities and serious concerns in the society.AimsThe project aims to:generate a consolidated understanding of the most appropriate …

Parameter Identifiability for Stochastic Processes in Biological System

Stochastic models are used in biology to account for inherent randomness in many cellular processes, for example gene regulatory networks. Noise is often thought to obscure information, however, there is an increasing understanding that some randomness contains vitally important information about underlying biological processes.When applying these models to interpret and learn from data, unknown parameters in the model need to be estimated. However, not all data will contribute to a given estimation task regardless of the data quantity and quality. …

Scalable and privacy-preserving publish-subscribe for data sharing

The publish-subscribe communication protocol is widely used in real-world data-driven applications. Data producers and consumers share their data using the publish-subscribe communication protocol, which relies on a centralized data sharing server. As the data load increases, the publish-subscribe broker fails to meet the real-time demands of the applications.This project will investigate and develop a scalable and privacy-preserving publish-subscribe protocol.

5G and IoT smart ontology learning

This project aims to investigate privacy preservation protocols in a 5G integrated IoT environment through an analysis of the depth of smart-device use in common smart domains. 5G’s addition to IoT-based smart devices will be effectively deployed and utilised by a large majority of individual and organisation-based users. The knowledge-based ontology and tools developed in the project will help form the new privacy preservation mechanisms that are required for the 5G enabled environment.The development of an ontology for 5G enabled …
