Finding ways that machine learning tools can support high stakes decisions by government agencies is the focus of research by Prof Rhema Vaithianathan and the team at the Centre for Social Data Analytics.

Prof. Vaithianathan works closely with agencies to develop and implement machine learning tools that harness existing data to support decision making in health and human services. The use cases for these tools are helping agencies to address the challenges.
