Data intensive research groups in WA generating world class research

Research Groups

Sitting at the intersection of domain expertise, mathematics and computing, the applications of Data Science are pervasive. Research Groups are increasingly utilising the availability of large volumes and more complex data sets to solve challenges across sectors, from agriculture, astrophysics and health care to asset management, finance and logistics.

UWA

Automation and Robotics

The Robotics and Automation discipline at UWA addresses challenges in engineering where continuous human presence is either undesirable or impossible, and where teleoperation and automation can improve operations.
