The recovery from COVID-19 is not limited to immediate health challenges, but also the challenges created for the Australian economy and the cumulative impact on many aspects of society. Australia’s response will involve significant correction to existing approaches to policy and innovation as the country adapts and responds to new challenges and growth opportunities.
The instrumental role of digital technology in the road to recovery has been cemented by national and international initiatives, such as the contact tracing app, telehealth and digital health infrastructure, online educational platforms and many others. Expertise that can contribute to these areas spans a number of interconnected areas, such as artificial intelligence, image processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, data mining, control systems, computer science, telecommunications, cyber security, software engineering, robotics, cyber-physical systems, data science and engineering, information systems, human centered computing and interaction design.
The success of the National COVID-19 Expert Database has provided an opportunity augment the Expert Database to enable Australian ICS/ICT experts to be identified and contacted in an accessible and targeted manner.
This initiative is driven by the National Committee for Information and Communication Sciences and the recommendations of the 2019 report, Preparing for Australia’s Digital Future.
