More than 70 of Australia's Laureate professors, including ACEMS Director Peter Taylor and ACEMS Chief Investigator Kate Smith-Miles, have signed a letter to the minister for education, Dan Tehan. The letter outlines the flaws in the proposed university reforms.
ACEMS Chief Investigator Prof Rob Hyndman was a guest on the Investment Magazine podcast, 'The Curious Quant'. He discusses his work on forecasting COVID for the Australian government, time-series and causality, and his work as editor of the Internal Journal of Forecasting.
Cells don’t move and interact with each other in the way scientists have always believed, according to Australian researchers. Writing in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, an ACEMS team suggests that cell movement actually increases when there are more cells around.
Just like that, our internet connection has become an umbilical to the outside world. We now depend on it to do our jobs, to go to school, and to see other people. It is our primary source of entertainment. And we’re using it a lot.
Think of a Rubik's Cube and most people think of trying to solve it? How many moves does it take? But what about the opposite? How many moves does it take to scramble? And, what does it mean to scramble a Rubik's Cube? ACEMS' Tim Garoni and Eric Zhou from Monash University explore these fascinating questions in this story in The Conversation.
ACEMS' Matthew Adams talked about his research on ABC Radio Drive on the importance of using mathematical models to help managers make the most-informed decisions when it comes to managing species in an ecosystem.
We all know how hard it is to get a car park during the holiday shopping season. ACEMS' Sarah Belet provides some mathematical common sense to the problem in this story about parking lot rage on "A Current Affair".
The recent bushfires in Queensland and NSW exposed again the vulnerability of Koalas, already under threat from land clearing, road kill, and dog attacks. ACEMS researchers are using a combination of virtual reality, drones, and statistics to help predict and protect koala habitat.
A new method of predicting koala habitats has drastically improved the accuracy of koala mapping, with researchers hoping it will lead to better-planned habitats for the marsupials. Researchers from QUT and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers took the already-established technology of heat-seeking koala-spotting drones and 360-degree virtual reality imagery and added it to traditional ground surveys.
