Professor Ryszard Kowalczyk, currently the Director of Swinburne’s Key Lab for Intelligent Software Systems, and the head of Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology research group at Swinburne, has been appointed as the Professorial Chair of Artificial Intelligence.

The two institutions also plan to establish a joint innovation centre to conduct industry-focused research in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning. In particular, the centre will focus on specific applications for digital health and smart cities. This partnership will focus on creating innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) that would benefit enterprises in Australia and the ASEAN region.

“With this powerful industry-academia partnership, we are on course to transform AI and ML as we know it, said, professor Kowalczyk. “AI and ML are today one of the most coveted skills and this innovation centre makes it possible to fast track AI and ML courses for industry professionals and provide the industry with access to a large pool of PhD and undergraduate students at the University.”
