ACVT has been awarded $210,000 through the ARC Linkage Infrastructure and Equipment Facilities (LIEF) program to further develop its Machine Learning capacity.
Machine learning is responsible for many recent advances in image-based information analysis, from finding minerals in satellite images, to image-based guidance of autonomous vehicles. This progress is due to new methods for learning from the vast volumes of image-based data that are now available. These images present a great opportunity that is only just beginning to be exploited, as automated image analysis methods still lag far behind the human ability to interpret image information.
This project will develop the specific infrastructure required to tackle this problem, allowing Australia researchers to carry out the large-scale image-based machine learning required to achieve automated understanding of the world through images.
