Hyperspectral imaging for analysing materials
Checking the contents of tablets, finding new ore bodies to mine, identifying tumours – these are just some of the applications of hyperspectral imaging. This technology has been the focus of CSIRO research which helps determine the composition of different materials and how composition varies throughout the material.
Health information and patient management
New health management systems, through the applications of advanced information and communication technology, data analysis and statistics, are delivering improved patient treatments and new ways to retrieve, organise and communicate healthcare data.
Global banks use CSIRO financial maths
CSIRO has partnered with GFI Group to develop a powerful collection of models to assist banks and financial institutions in pricing all major exotic foreign exchange (FX) options.
GeneRave: software for bioinformatics
GeneRave is a new statistical technique specifically for microarray data that is able to cope with the multivariate nature of microarray data and extract meaningful information from it, available as an add-on library to the statistical software package R.
Speeding up science: CSIRO's CPU-GPU supercomputer
CSIRO's latest supercomputer cluster is among the world's first to combine traditional CPUs with more powerful graphics processing units or GPUs, providing a world class computational and simulation science facility to advance priority CSIRO science.
Forecasting: dealing with uncertainty
CSIRO is finding new ways of reporting uncertainties in forecasts, such as climate change predictions, for more reliable environmental planning and policy making.
Identifying, measuring and pricing risk
CSIRO specialises in identifying, quantifying, measuring and pricing risk for the finance and insurance industries. We offer flexible customer relationships for research, consulting and technical services.
Environmental monitoring and risk assessment
CSIRO statisticians are finding new ways to help manage the risks associated with the use, protection and sustainable economic development of Australia’s natural resources, particularly in fresh and estuarine waterways.
Environmental monitoring and analysis
Our scientists are providing quality information to planners and policy-makers about the complex systems that make up the natural environment.
Our scientists are providing quality information to planners and policy-makers about the incredibly complex systems that make up the natural environment.
Environmental and agricultural informatics: strength in numbers
Major issues such as climate change, sustainable fisheries and urban water quality benefit from CSIRO's statistical and mathematical expertise. Our methods are being adopted and, in some cases, mandated by state and federal governments, and international agencies.
Early statisticians at CSIRO
CSIRO’s first three statisticians were all women and all three had trained at Rothamsted Experimental Station in the UK under RA Fisher or F Yates, two of the founders of modern statistics.
