NICTA carries out fundamental research that advances knowledge and produces technology that will benefit end users by solving real problems.

Our research is structured around five research groups:

Computer Vision – Understanding the world using images and image sequences.
Machine Learning – Making sense of the ever increasing amounts of data gathered in all areas of human endeavor is an important contemporary challenge.
Mobile Systems – Developing mechanisms that will improve the quality of experience of the users when accessing information and services, especially at the wireless edge.
Optimisation – Using scientific results to model any organisation or system, simulate and optimise it, and
Software Systems – Achieving fundamental, game-changing improvements in the design, implementation, and verification of software systems scaling from the embedded to the enterprise space.
