New Deep Learning Supercomputer

Deep learning is a term that has not been far from anyone’s lips since the inception of the Centre, with its impact on computer vision and robotics in the last 2 years both immediate and profound.

A new deep learning supercomputer went online at The University of Adelaide and is now providing the computer power the Centre needs to train deeper and larger models and to handle large numbers of parameters and big data.

Three Centre nodes, Adelaide, QUT and ANU, along with Deakin and UWA were all part of a successful LIEF (Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities) grant award by the Australian Research Council. The grant, combined with funding from each of these universities, is worth nearly $400,000 AUD.

Robotic Vision

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision is leading the world in transformational research tackling the critical and complex challenge of applying computer vision to robotics. We believe that the ability to see, to visually understand the complex world around us and respond to it, is critical for the next generation of robots that will perform useful work in agriculture, environmental monitoring, healthcare, infrastructure inspection, construction and manufacturing. We believe that robotic vision is the key to unleashing the full potential of robots and fundamentally changing the way we live and work. Link
