It has just been announced that the Data to Decisions (D2D) CRC application was successful. The ACVT (now AIML) forms a major node of the D2D CRC, being responsible for the analytics program within the CRC. The aim of the D2D CRC is to develop robust data analysis tools applicable to problems of importance to Defence, and other industries.
Only 3 new CRC bids were successful, and the D2D bid was awarded $25M from the CRC program. This, when combined with other contributions, results in a total value of over $80M over 5 years.
The awarding of the CRC will see further expansion of the ACVT (now AIML) capabilities in Machine Learning, Big Data, and Computer Vision.
