Australian Institute for Machine Learning

A unique building on the site of the old Royal Adelaide Hospital has been beautifully restored to provide a home for Australia's first institute dedicated to research in artificial intelligence, computer vision and machine learning. 

The old Womens Health Centre has been transformed to create the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) and is home to around 160 staff and postgraduate students. The space features a stunning mix of old and new, with original 1930s windows, saw tooth south lights and stairwell balustrades complimented by soaring ceilings and wide hallways.
