ARC Training Centre in Cognitive Computing for Medical Technologies

Project Details

The Centre will train individuals to learn skills applicable across technologies and medical sectors and will focus its research on four high-value medical domains:

1) epileptic seizure prediction based on real-time data analytics and online training using data streams from neurobionics devices;brain-controlled prostheses to improve the mobility,
2) function and quality of life of the disabled, based on machine learning using multimodal data streams from brain implants and video and speech inputs;
3)predicting the Alzheimer’s disease (AD) risk trajectory of an individual; and
4) real-time clinical decision support to improve the quality of clinical decisions.  

This Centre will train a new generation of entrepreneurial experts in cognitive computing for medical technologies, who will understand business drivers and opportunities for Australian industry. The experience of 12 months embedded in IBM will give the participants real industry experience and meet a key recommendation of the Australian Councilof Learned Academies (ACOLA) Review of Australia’s Research Training System.
