AI at CSIRO

Applying AI to tackle Australia's greatest challenges

For more than 100 years, CSIRO has been using innovative science and technology to tackle national challenges.

Today, we are continuing that tradition by harnessing the power of digital transformation to amplify and accelerate our science, open new frontiers and deliver benefits for Australia. Across the globe, AI is transforming the way we work, socialise and deliver services such as healthcare.

CSIRO is home to one of the largest applied AI capabilities in the world, with more than one thousand researchers working on a diverse range of AI and data science projects. Our researchers are using AI to tackle challenges from bushfire management to boosting agricultural productivity, improving cybersecurity and protecting our environments including the Great Barrier Reef.

We are working with industry partners to apply AI, for example helping manufacturers use computer vision to increase production and ensure safety on the factory floor.

We are also developing the frameworks and capability to lead the world in the ethical and responsible use of this powerful set of technologies.
