each of our five laboratories come together to show
emerging off their groundbreaking use-inspired ICT research
technology to industry, government, educational and research
institutions, and the general public. This was our sixth
Techfest with over 450 people in attendance.
The event showcased an array of NICTA innovations in
the areas of the digital economy, transport and logistics,
biomedical and life sciences, safety and security,
environmental management, enterprise software and
Research from NICTA’s Implant Systems group, which
is developing small, sophisticated and inexpensive
implantable therapies to help treat neurological
disorders, attracted plenty of attention. The two
research teams involved in the Bionic Vision Australia
consortium were kept busy with inquiries from
visitors keen to check out NICTA’s contribution to the
development of the bionic eye.
Over thirty NICTA research activities were showcased
