Global effort to build the quantum economy
Quantum computing is developing rapidly with government and business investment reaching $35.5 billion across a range of quantum technologies globally. But how do we prepare for the societal-scale transformation that will be brought about by a technology that has not yet reached maturity?
RI in the lab: Impacting the course of biomedical innovation
Can embedding social science in new technology development drive more socially responsible outcomes? We chat to a researcher who has spent the last 18 months working alongside systems biology researchers. Meet JOHN NOEL M. VIAÑA
Lessons learnt from designing Industry 4.0
The term Industry 4.0 has well and truly migrated from boardroom buzz to new science and technology. But in 2022, have we successfully harnessed its full potential? We speak to RMIT's DR LISA DETHRIDGE to find out
AI you can trust, thanks to new reusable guidelines
Over the last few years the tech community has seen a flux of regulations and principles for the creation of responsible artificial intelligence (AI) come online. QINGHUA LU and colleagues have set out to transition these principles from theory to practice. They're building guidelines that will provide concrete, reusable advice for developers, technologists, management, and regulators.
Future science teamwork yields unique international collaboration
The modern researcher tends to need to be good at some form of cross discipline integration of research and development practice. But what of the integration of future science agendas as they are emerging? Does this require new ways of collaborating with researchers and research stakeholders? SIMON FIELKE and EMMA JAKKU report
Fuel for thought: understanding public acceptance around hydrogen
Hydrogen has been tapped as the 'fuel of the future' in Australia's transition to a clean energy future. But as with any technology, public acceptance will be required for it to be adopted. We speak to Mitch Scovell about his research into hydrogen.
