To support business and operational goals, it is essential to learn what information a human operator needs and when it is needed; the impact of high-stress environments to study memory, navigation and functioning; how decision makers rely on multiple information sources; and how bias or decision failures arise
Exploring the challenges of visual narratives and developing novel ways to navigate complexity using creative methodologies from the video game, 3D computer animation and Virtual Reality (VR) creative content industries.
Bionic array Directed Gene Electrotransfer (BaDGE®) is a platform technology for targeted delivery of naked DNA. The first clinical application uses DNA encoding neurotrophins to drive regrowth of the auditory nerve.
The UNSW Medicine Biodefence Collaboration is between the Kirby Institute and the UNSW School of Public Health and Community Medicine; bringing together chief investigators in Epidemic Response and complementary capabilities in public health interventions and acute response to biological threats.
Using sensors, data analysis and extensive clinical expertise, human performance can be remotely monitored in real-life stressful environments and interventions suggested to improve performance outcomes.
The Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics is the largest genomics facility at any Australian University. It is comprehensively equipped with the latest next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, with single-cell genomics platforms and with high throughput microarray systems. It is funded by the Australian Government as infrastructure of national significance.
An independent community of scholars adding breadth and depth to research on the diverse interactions among technological change, law, and legal practice, enriching academic and policy debates. Driving considered reform of law through engagement with the legal profession, the judiciary, industry, government and the broader community, it incorporates a wide variety of more specific research streams including Data Justice, Data Protection and Surveillance, and Technologies and the Rule of Law.
Studying the factors that influence how people generalise what they have learned to new contexts and situations. Basic research in this field provides guidelines on best to optimise generalisation of learned skills and knowledge.
Oculog is an innovative new remote eye tracking tool that tracks pupil and corneal reflection in a controlled lighting environment to estimate gaze position relative to a stationary or mobile camera. It can potentially be used to track eye movements of many people across a variety of real-world environments. Data can then be auto-aggregated to yield population gaze metrics.
A cross-disciplinary research environment dedicated to understanding how humans can interact with three-dimensional robotic agents and responsive structures within the context of creative and social robotics.
The School of Humanities and Social Sciences at UNSW Canberra provides expertise in policy, strategic and operational outlook for the employment of special operations forces in the current and emerging conflict environment.
