The collaboration between ACVT and LBT Innovations won the SA Science Excellence award for Research Collaboration for the development of that APAS technology. APAS is an automated agar plate reader, which promises to greatly reduce the cost of this critical pathology procedure. APAS achieve first-in-class FDA approval last year.
A team led by Damien Teney (ACVT) and Peter Anderson (ACRV, ANU, and Microsoft) has just placed first in the VQA 2.0 challenge. Other members of the team include David Golub from Stanford, Po-Seng Huang, Lei Zhang and Xiaodong He from Microsoft, and Anton van den Hengel from ACVT. The leaderboard is here.
Not that these ranking exercises mean all that much, but the latest Shanghai ratings put the University of Adelaide at 43 in the world in Computer Science and Engineering, above Cambridge, Caltech, Peking and Delft. The University of Adelaide in total ranks 109 in the QS rankings, 139th in the ARWU and 142nd in the […]
Entries for the latest VQA v2 challenge close on Monday morning, and we’re currently number one amongst the entries that have been submitted thus far. There will be more submitted as the deadline approaches, but we’ll improve our performance also. So we’re not there yet, but we’re in a very good position. The task of Visual […]
The group had 11 CVPR papers accepted this year, which is another incredible result. The IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) is the number one venue in Computer Vision (by Google Scholar‘s h-index metric) and number seven in Engineering and Computer Science. It also has the highest h-index of any conference in any […]
Congratulations to Zifeng and Chunhua on having made it to the top of the Cityscapes leaderboard again. Cityscapes is a semantic segmentation dataset of city scenes, and a hotly contested international challenge. The challenge is to separate the pixels belonging to different classes of objects. Semantic Segmentation is one of the fundamental challenges in computer […]
We just had a piece on medical machine learning published in the Conversation.
The ACVT has been working with LBT Innovations, a South Australian medical device company, for more than 5 years on a new form of medical device to automate the reading of Agar plates. The processing of Agar plates is an important and time-consuming part of the normal operation of hospitals and clinics around the world. […]

We’ve had another great year in the ImageNet competition. We came 2nd in the Scene Parsing challenge, which requires pixelwise segmentation of a large set of images into 150 classes of things and stuff. The ImageNet Challenge is one of the most hotly contested challenges in Computer Vision, and is constantly updated to reflect the current […]
