The Australian Institute for Machine Learning
AIML is one of the world’s largest institutes dedicated to basic and
applied research in AI, machine learning and computer vision. It is also
one of the most successful, in terms of winning some of the biggest
research awards and major benchmark competitions in the field, as well as
securing major industry and government contracts.

According to CSRankings.org, the School of Computer Science at Adelaide is
ranked third in the world (within 2010 and 2018) in the area of computer
vision. Much of this excellent result is due to the efforts of the
researchers at AIML.

South Australian Space Industry
The state of South Australia is home to over 60 space- and defence-related
organisations and companies. The state government is committed to further
develop the local space industry to create a thriving ecosystem. This
correlates with the recent formation of the Australian Space Agency, a
national-level organisation to lead and coordinate the nation’s ambition in
the space industry.
