Protecting Perth’s Aquifers
One of Australia’s most important – and sometimes most tumultuous – relationships with the natural environment is between the public and its water. In the south west of Western Australia in particular, delivering enough fresh water for a growing population is a pressing challenge when the conditions are drier than ever due to less annual

Using Maths to Assess Blocked Arteries
Combining laser imaging with supercomputing, researchers are modelling the severity of artery blockages without physically probing the blood flow, and may be able to identify future danger areas In the near future, heart specialists will be using virtual devices based on mathematics and supercomputing to predict artery blockages before they happen. Cardiologists already have an
The end of Perth Big Data Week 2017!
Big Data Week 2017 was launched by Professor Peter Klinken, Chief Scientist of Western Australia on Monday 8 May at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Kensington. Attendees of the launch included special Guest of Honour, the Honourable David Kelly MLA, Minister for Water; Fisheries; Forestry; Innovation and ICT; and Science. Perth Big Data Week is
Live ASKAP data hits Galaxy
Pawsey radio-astronomy supercomputer Galaxy has begun storing live data streamed from the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope in northern WA. ASKAP is now producing an enormous 5.2 terabytes (15% of global Internet traffic) of data per second, which is processed on site and then streamed down to Galaxy and stored at the rate
Australian technology installed on world’s largest single-dish radio telescope
The world’s largest filled single-dish radio telescope launched on Sunday, and it relies on a piece of West Australian innovation. The telescope—known as FAST—uses a data system developed at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy (ICRAR) in Perth and the European Southern Observatory to manage the huge amounts of data it generates. The software is
Cisco centre builds linkages
A recently opened research and innovation centre at Curtin University is rapidly building interaction between big corporates, small businesses, academia and government. The Cisco Internet of Everything Innovation Centre opened its doors in January after gaining backing from global technology company Cisco Systems, Woodside Petroleum, and Curtin. The three partners have collectively committed $30 million
