Throughout the year, RMIT presents a series of public seminars on current issues and cutting edge research in computer science.
This seminar series provides a platform for speakers from academia and industry to present their research or experience on topics ranging from big data to artificial intelligence, sensor networks to information retrieval, and much more.
The seminars are free and open to the general public. No booking is necessary.
If you are interested in giving a presentation in this seminar series, or want make suggestions for speakers, please contact the seminar co-ordinator Tao Gu.
