Twitter: @TheAIML | Website: University of Adelaide, Australian Institute for Machine Learning

Co-investment by the State Government and the University of Adelaide saw the concept of Australia’s first institute dedicated to research in machine learning finally come to fruition. In early 2018, the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) was officially established. Although a new Institute by name, AIML was formed from the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT), a group with a long history of delivering high-impact fundamental and applied research. The AIML's world-class research strengths lie in machine learning and the methods that support this; artificial intelligence, computer vision and deep learning.
