About us

We are the Cybernetics Research Group, part of the Cyber-Physical Systems Research Program at CSIRO’s Data61 Business Unit.

Our vision is to create a future enhanced by ubiquitous devices, where the interface between machines and complex environments is seamless, and to create situational awareness in real-time.

The research of the cybernetics group is highly multidisciplinary and involves working with experts in domains from entomology and neuroscience to mining and agriculture. It aims to create real-time situational awareness in complex environments, particularly of biological agents such as human brain state or animal behaviour.

With over 30 people spread between Sydney and Hobart, Australia, our team is comprised of Research Scientists, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Engineers, PhD & Masters Students and Industrial Trainees.
