CECC 3MT candidates Dan Virah-Sawmy, Jonathan Ting, Fiona Yu, and Fazeleh Kazemian pose with judges Professor Chris Kellett, Dr Michael Norrish, and Professor Alex Zafiroglu; and Associate Dean Higher Degree Research Professor Dirk Pattinson.
Congratulations to PhD student Dan Virah-Sawmy, who won over both the judges and crowd at our recent 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) event for his engaging pitch on using sustainable technologies to save the Great Barrier Reef.
Ioana Ciucă and her research partner Yuan-Sen Ting came to ANU to explore the origins of our galaxy from the nexus of artificial intelligence and astronomy. Their findings have confirmed the remnant chemical imprint of a galactic collision 10 billion years ago, and spurred a global effort to enlist large language models as co-pilots in academic research.

Talei Elu discusses a prototype she created for a satellite beacon to be used in boating emergencies at the School of Cybernetics' Demo Day.
The Australian National University (ANU) cybernetics students presented cyber-physical systems as industry partners, collaborators and the wider community gathered on campus for Demo Day.
A coconut shell robot was among many dozens that attempted to complete mazes in "Discovering Engineering", an introductory course for students at ANU.
Student teams watched with hands clasped in prayer as their robot cars attempted to navigate mazes using sonar sensors to detect and avoid obstructions.
Professor Andrew Blakers speaks at a recent celebration of the 2023 Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, awarded to him and his colleagues for the development of Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) solar photovoltaic technology.
Professor Andrew Blakers has dedicated his life and career to creating innovative solutions that help tackle climate change.
“Improving efficiency of solar cells is really important because that directly drives the cost,” says Professor Kylie Catchpole. “If you want to use solar to make things like hydrogen to replace fossil fuels you need to bring down the cost of electricity.” Photo: Jamie Kidston/ANU
Solar energy is having its moment in the sun. What’s next for the technology that powers it and how do we get more people to use it? Making solar technology cheaper and more efficient is now a key focus for researchers, including Professor Kylie Catchpole.
Alexander Ollman enjoyed the Capstone engineering course so much that he took it twice. Now he's returned to Capstone as a mentor aiming to design a remote piloting system for the long haul trucking industry.
When a kangaroo jumps in front of a semitrailer, who should make the course correction? A human driver? AI? How about a semi-autonomous piloting system controlled by a human operator thousands of kilometres away?
17 ANU-ASD Co-Lab Honours grant recipients were celebrated and welcomed into the program earlier this month. We had the opportunity to meet the group and learn about the CECC Honours projects of 2023.
“When you apply machine learning to a new industry, there is always a lot of uncertainty. It’s the not knowing that I love the most. It’s thrilling,” said Tanya Dixit, Master of Machine Learning and Computer Vision 2021.
Machine learning engineer Tanya Dixit ventured from India to Australia in 2019 to join one of the few graduate programs in the world focused squarely on machine learning.
She also wanted to reboot her life.
