The University of Adelaide’s Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) has officially opened a new research and learning space at the Lot Fourteen innovation precinct in Adelaide.
The AIML is working with another Lot Fourteen tenant, Inovor Technologies, to develop a novel computer vision system for Inovor’s Project Hyperion, which aims to enhance Australian Space Situational Awareness (SSA).
“Our Institute is making an important national and international contribution to pushing the boundaries of what machine learning can do, and how that can be applied to almost every aspect of our lives,” said Professor Anton van den Hengel, director of AIML at the University of Adelaide.
Established in 2018, the AIML had as a launch partner Lockheed Martin’s Melbourne-based STELaRLAB. Machine learning, AI and autonomous systems will be vital in the future, says Dr Tony Lindsay, Director of STELaRLAB, because weapons such as Hypersonic missiles move so quickly humans simply can’t react fast enough. Trusted autonomous systems are essential to respond to such threats in time.
“Over the last two years, we have engaged with more than 100 organisations to help them enter into the new AI-enabled global economy,” says Professor van den Hengel. “We are working with 10 South Australian SMEs to develop world class AI products to sell to the world.”
