Artificial intelligence research is a particular strength in the School of Computing and Information Systems. Our researchers address many different approaches to AI, encompassing deep learning, data mining, machine learning, natural language processing, and agent-based systems. Our theories and techniques can be applied to a wide range of practical problems, including cyber-security, health, finance and government.
Melbourne is also host to the IBM and ARC-funded Training Centre for Cognitive Computing for Medical Technologies, which is furthering our research and translating into solving critical needs in the domains of medicine and health.
Data Mining and Machine Learning
We develop novel algorithms that analyse data more accurately and more rapidly. We combine complementary research into both data mining and machine learning approaches, and are very active in the recently emerged field of deep learning.
Natural Language Processing
Using machine intelligence to leverage human language is a fundamental technique for utilising AI, which can be used in medicine, government and to assist search engines. Our natural language processing team work on a variety of methods to make computers better able to find and use textual documents and supplement human abilities.
Intelligent systems can act (semi-)autonomously, working alongside human experts to analyse and help solve complex challenges. Designing good agents needs to balance the ability of agents to work effectively with other agents and human experts to have the maximum real-world impact.
