Have you ever seen a drone autonomously washing the windows on a skyscraper? A sensor detecting the peak ripeness of a watermelon? A child receiving a new 3D-printed hand as they grow and develop?

A new research training centre based in Victoria will develop artificial intelligence (AI) applications for medical technologies and train an expert workforce that will drive Australian innovation.

University of Melbourne, together with University of New South Wales (UNSW), today announced a $8.6 million research project investigating the performance and value of efficient, heavy duty, reciprocating engines running on renewable hydrogen. The research will be partly funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). 

The University of Melbourne is delighted with GM Holden’s announcement that it will be significantly boosting its engineering workforce at Fishermans Bend in Melbourne.

University of Melbourne researchers have developed a software tool that uses applied mathematics and big data analytics to predict the boundary of where a landslide will occur, two weeks in advance.

More than 700 students aged from 5 to 18 years old will gather at the University of Melbourne Parkville campus today, Tuesday 14 August, to compete in the RoboCup Junior State Finals and vie for a spot in the national competition.

study by University of Melbourne researchers reveals clinically relevant epileptic seizure prediction is possible in a wider range of patients than previously thought, thanks to the crowdsourcing of more than 10 000 algorithms worldwide. 

In a world-first, University of Melbourne researchers have designed an artificial intelligence (AI) system to detect and display people’s personality traits and physical attractiveness based solely on a photo of their face.

New research reveals almost one in five (18.9 per cent) Australians report chemical sensitivity, with more than one-third (6.5 per cent) medically diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), suffering health problems from exposure to common chemical products.

University of Melbourne scientists have set a world record in simulating quantum power on a classical computer, demonstrating more quantum data crunching than any of the existing quantum computer prototypes.
