Equipping robots with similar navigational skills has been a research challenge for some time. PhD student Kejie Li has been working towards this leap through object-oriented SLAM, which enables robots to recognise objects in context.
Will I have to compete against a robot for my next job? What does the future workforce look like for our children?
Researchers from the University of Adelaide (computer science, engineering, mathematics) attended workshop sessions earlier this year at the Loxton Research Centre along with Wine Australia and Riverland Wine.
A State Government grant will launch a digital precision control system pilot program for grape growers in the Riverland aiming to assist growers to optimise production and support overall vineyard efficiency, profitability and sustainability. Read the full media release here .
Professor Ian Reid and Professor Anton van den Hengel feature in Rising to global challenges, a 32 page magazine showcasing the innovative and world-class research work being undertaken at the University of Adelaide. You can read about their research here.
The AIML (formally ACVT) has joined the Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI), the peak body for driverless vehicles in Australia.
In conjunction with the success of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision’s workshops at CVPR2015 in Boston:
PhD Scholarships in Visual SLAM and Computer/Robotic Vision and Machine Learning for visual recognition
The Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT-now AIML) at The University of Adelaide has 12 PhD scholarships available for both local and international students interested in pursuing a PhD. These Scholarships are funded from an ARC Laureate Fellowship to Prof Ian Reid entitled “Lifelong Computer Vision Systems”, and an ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision, with Investigators Prof Reid, Prof Chunhua Shen, Dr Gustavo Carneiro and Prof Anon Van den Hengel.
ACVT researchers Prof. Ian Reid, Prof. Anton van den Hengel, Associate Prof. Chunhua Shen and Dr. Gustavo Carneiro are part of a team that has been awarded a prestigious ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision.
