Adelaide Connected Podcast – Season 3 Episode 15 with Simon Lucey

Episode 15 of our Adelaide Connected Podcast is now LIVE, featuring Professor Simon Lucey, Director of the Australian Institute for Machine Learning at the University of Adelaide.

Originally from Queensland, Simon is what we term an ‘Arrow,’ someone who has moved to Adelaide to live and work. Simon has spent time working as the Principal Research Scientist at the CSIRO in Brisbane and as an Associate Research Professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute in Pittsburgh, USA. In October 2020, he was lured to Adelaide to set up the Australian Institute of Machine Learning, Australia’s first research facility dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, computer vision, deep learning and innovation.

We chat to Simon about his career to date, his work developing technology for self-driving cars and the opportunity for Adelaide to be a global leader in AI. We also find out what he loves about living in Adelaide, his typical Saturday routine and his favourite Adelaide restaurants, events and regional getaway destinations.
