In order to get the most out of their data, businesses and governments need better solutions to manage their digital resources, analytics and computational platforms.

They also increasingly need to gain unique and trusted insights from data across different organisations through collaboration, and under complex regulatory environments.


The Software and Computational Systems program focuses on next-generation technologies in secure data sharing, distributed and trusted data analytics and collaborative computational platforms.

Our team conducts world class fundamental research in many areas such as trustworthy and secure systems; computational platforms, including image analysis and molecular modelling; legal informatics; blockchain; and biological data visualisation.

Our work spans government services, defence, agriculture, aviation, mining, personalised health, smart cities and environment management. Recently, we've had success with our projects in high assurance cyber-military systems funded by Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); leading the national effort in blockchain; regulation-as-a-platform, modular Information of Things security; high content analysis; and nanodiamonds for drug discovery/delivery.

We collaborate broadly with more than 20 local universities and many international institutes such as the University of Cambridge, MIT, Purdue University and Chinese Academy of Science. Our network, which also includes partnerships with government and industry, means we can draw on additional capabilities to co-create value when solving problems with our customers.
