He will step down from his current role on 12 September. CSIRO’s Data61 has quickly established itself as a leading data science and engineering group, working with government and industry on digital and data driven opportunities including spatial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, cyber security and open data.
Dr Larry Marshall, Chief Executive CSIRO said: “Adrian Turner has made a significant contribution to CSIRO and Australia in understanding and harnessing the opportunities that digital and data science can deliver. Our relationship will continue beyond Data61, with CSIRO and Adrian exploring how we can work together on the new venture.”
A global search will now commence for his replacement.
