To harness and expand the University's research potential in Information and Communication Technologies, by creating an innovative research agenda and providing a stimulating research culture and training environment that supports fundamental and applied research into advanced computing techniques and products that address practical problems requiring intelligence and the integration of diverse capabilities. Mission statement
The next generation of products, tools, services and systems will need to exhibit two distinguishing features: a set of capabilities and behaviours that reflect built-in intelligence and another set of capabilities and behaviours that are collaborative and integrated to amplify their overall effect. Technology with these features will be more user-friendly, capable, effective and adaptive in responding to the needs and challenges of complex, changing and unpredictable environments.
The Institute's new projects will draw upon our internationally recognised track record in knowledge representation and reasoning, information visualisation, speech and image processing, collaborative internet computing, autonomous robots and vehicles, machine learning, modelling complex systems, and knowledge management. We will address fundamental research problems and form strong partnerships with industry to conduct applied research that has the potential for commercialisation and exploitation by the wider community. By creating a stimulating research environment that fosters innovation and mentors young scientists, we will establish Griffith as a world-class centre for research in integrated and intelligent systems.
The prize, which was awarded at the Gold Coast campus on June 4, goes to the best industry project developed by Griffith’s IT and Multimedia students.
The result was more than 1000 registered participants taking part, including about 700 hackers and 130 competition entries all competing for their share of glory, and the prize money.
A growing shortage of information and communication technology (ICT) skills may threaten future economic growth world-wide.
