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.
Our research projects address fundamental problems and help form strong partnerships with industry. We conduct applied research that has the potential for commercialisation, and can be a benefit to the community. By creating a stimulating research environment that fosters innovation and mentors young scientists, we provide a world-class centre for research in integrated and intelligent systems.
Our flagship programs:
Health Informatics: Aiming to improve healthcare with the use of IT and computer science, this flagship program explores highly relevant themes including: the role of IT planning, robotics and mobile applications in healthcare.
Bioinformatics: The Bioinformatics flagship program aims to understand the molecular mechanisms and development of predictive bioinformatics methods for protein folding, stability, and binding of ligands, peptides, and DNA.
Environmental Informatics: Environmental Informatics studies how information can be acquired, processed, modelled, and communicated for environmental sciences and management.
