About Monash Data Futures
Artificial Intelligence and data science can change the world for the better.
At Monash Data Futures, we understand that the benefits of AI and data science are only achieved when we work across disciplines and sectors. We're creating transformative and lasting change in three key areas: better governance and policy, health sciences, and sustainable development.
Located in the heart of the Monash Precinct, Monash Data Futures is part of an ecosystem of enterprise and innovation. Our open-door partnerships with industry spark ambitious, best-in-class solutions that break down traditional disciplinary barriers.
The Monash Data Futures Institute supports the University's research priorities and is headed by Professor Jon Whittle, Dean of Monash IT and Professor Jordan Nash, Dean of Monash Science.
