The School of Computing has a strong foundation in the computing and information sciences at the ANU. We are a transformative centre for research in artificial intelligence and machine learning, computer systems and software, and theoretical foundations of computing. We span traditional computer science and modern data and computational science.
We organise ourselves across several broad activity clusters. Research groups and projects often span clusters.
Home of the ANU Laptop Ensemble, the c/c/c studio is a research group whose goal is to create spaces for talking, thinking and making about the way that code (software), creativity (especially...
Computational Media Lab
The Computational Media Lab at the ANU focuses on computational problems for understanding online media and their interactions with and among humans. We develop core methods in machine learning and optimization. We...

Graph Research Lab
Our overarching research goal is to explore and understand graph-structured data. In today’s real-world applications, graphs are ubiquitously used for representing complex objects and their relationships such as cities in a road...
The High Performance Computing group works on the development of algorithms and software artefacts that leverage high-performance computing and AI and run on cutting-edge HPC machines, such as exascale supercomputers, to push...
Humanising Machine Intelligence
We are philosophers, computer scientists, political scientists, lawyers and sociologists, working together to develop democratically and culturally legitimate machine intelligence.
