A new UNSW Research Institute in artificial intelligence, data science and machine learning
Home to Australia’s leading Engineering faculty1, leading school of Computer Science2, and leading school of Mathematics and Statistics3, UNSW’s extensive track record in the research and development of AI and its application is well recognised globally4. Its academic staff hold many prestigious fellowships5, its graduates are sought after across the globe6 and its staff, students and alumni have started many AI technology enterprises.7
Australian and international students choose to study AI at UNSW in their thousands. Their robots are some of the best soccer players in the world.8
All up, UNSW has over 300 researchers involved in pushing forward the power of AI related techniques for the good of society. These researchers participate in over a dozen research centres, labs and facilities across all faculties at UNSW, including at ADFA@UNSW Canberra providing Australia’s defence forces with world leading teaching and research.
This unique capability has developed organically over time but currently lacks a cohesive means to bring them all together.
UNSW.ai is designed to harness the power of this capability to accelerate our development of new and more powerful AI techniques while ensuring their integrity, security and appropriate use.
UNSW.ai will provide a forum for our researchers and students to interchange ideas, maximising opportunities for interdisciplinary creativity and serendipitous discovery. It will take on a high visibility role in the public eye to play its part in explaining how AI can be of benefit to society and encouraging debate around it limitations. It will also have a commercial arm, providing high quality engineered AI based solutions for our many external partners in industry, in government and in NFP enterprises.
In a word, UNSW.ai aims to develop and harness the deep and diverse capabilities within UNSW to deliver impactful AI solutions for the benefit of society.
