CSIRO Julius Career Award – Dr Peyman Moghadam
Congratulations to Dr. Peyman Moghadam from the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group at CSIRO’s Data61 for receiving the prestigious CSIRO Julius Career Award.
Peyman was one of a handful of CSIRO staff awarded a CSIRO Julius Career Award and the only recipient from Data61 Business Unit in the 2019 round.
The award supports 3-years of funding to enhance the careers of exceptional early to mid-career scientists. The aim is to develop and retain outstanding early to mid-career scientists with a view of enhancing science quality, and to reinforce a culture of scientific excellence.
Peyman plans to use the funds to enhance his science and technology leadership through external secondments in overseas world-leading research facilities and industry partners.
The Award will strengthen Peyman’s leadership and professional development in science and technology and promote CSIRO and Data61 brands internationally.
The awards offers excellent opportunities for Peyman to collaborate with internationally renowned experts in the field of self-supervised deep learning for robotics.
The potential impact of deep learning in real-world is limited due to the lack of large and annotated datasets. Peyman’s team are working on developing self-supervised learning systems using strong spatio-temporal coherence as supervisory signals in training to alleviate these limitations.
