“My doctoral research with Data61 was a rewarding experience. CSIRO Robotics and MLAI groups have a rich history of conducting cutting-edge research in solving real-world problems in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence. I joined them to learn about their innovative research and contribute to some of their ongoing challenging problems with my experience in machine learning and multimedia big data.” Says Saimunur Rahman.

Saimunur Rahman recently completed his doctoral research in a collaboration between CSIRO Data61 and the University of Wollongong. His doctoral research was about higher-order visual representation learning with deep networks. He received his M.Sc. (by Research) in Computer Vision and B.Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering. He has been an awardee on many scholarships and honours throughout his life for academic and research excellence, including the Data61 PhD scholarship. His current research interests include computer vision, robotics and machine learning. He regularly reviews papers from top artificial intelligence conferences such as CVPR, ECCV, ACM MM etc., and serves on the program committees of various international conferences.
