Artificial Intelligence (AI) is receiving widespread attention around the world, with breakthrough results in a range of domains generating excitement, speculation and concern about the potential revolutionary impact of AI on economic growth and the future of jobs in the face of automation. 

At UQ, academics and researchers from across many Faculties and Institutes are actively working on the development and application of AI techniques in a diverse range of disciplines and application domains.  The purpose of this workshop is to bring these people together to share knowledge, explore synergies and develop collaborations around AI.

UQ staff and HDR students were invited to give a presentation at the Workshop. We had 14 oral presentations & 13 poster presentations.


Presentations included:

  • Current UQ research involving the development of AI theory, algorithms, techniques or analyses.
  • Current UQ research involving the application of AI to real-world applications, scientific or other problems.
  • Outlining of current or prospective work at UQ where AI has the potential to play a significant role.

The workshop was highly cross-disciplinary. The emphasis of the workshop was on gaining a shared understanding of the breadth of AI-related work at UQ. Presenters were encouraged to make their work accessible to an audience from a wide variety of backgrounds.
