The ANU is developing itself as a major centre for data and text mining techniques. Some initiatives from across the university are listed below, such as ongoing research projects and support services, which can be accessed through the websites listed below.
Our research is also addressing the increasing challenge of identity crimes. These offences can result in losses of billions of dollars for financial organisations and serious consequences for the victims involved. We are developing cutting-edge tools that will provide real-time identity verification in a broad range of applications, including e-Government portals, electronic banking, online stores and national security systems.
The Centre for Digital Humanities Research has established a Digital Humanities Lab in the Sir Roland Wilson Building, a much-needed space for research collaboration with colleagues across the ANU, for outreach and training in digital methods, and for student consultation. The Lab is the first of its kind in Australia and supports the work of undergraduate and postgraduate students from a large variety of humanities fields who wish to incorporate digital methods into their research and learning. The DHLab@ANU extends current capacities for digital printing (School of Art and Design facilities) and digital scanning (3D Scanner in DHLab) and provides students and scholars with a first-class facility from which to conduct the next generation of object-based digital research.
