The Data Science and Engineering Research Unit (DSERU) is a research unit located in the Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences, within the School of Computing, Mathematics and Engineering. The research conducted by DSERU is centered around data-driven analysis in various fields, including data mining, machine learning, machine vision, cybersecurity, network simulation and modeling, computational intelligence, and robotics. The unit applies these areas of expertise to address real-world problems in information technology and engineering disciplines.
- Dr Darren Yates from the Charles Sturt School of Computing, Mathematics and Engineering along with Professor Zahidul Islam, Dr Sabih Rehman and other colleagues from Gulbali Institute of Agriculture, Water and Environment, has developed the Combined Location Online Weather Data (CLOWD) app which delivers an online tool to assist farmers in making better crop and pasture management decisions by analysing recent and historic weather for any location in Australia. The app is part of a Food Agility CRC collaborative research project with Charles Sturt University, SunRice and AgriFutures Australia. Further information is available from here.
