Presenter

Dr Daniel Schmidt

Daniel Schmidt is a Senior Lecturer in Data Science at the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. Since completing his PhD, he has spent 10 years working primarily in the area of Bayesian inference, with a specific interest in applications to epidemiological problems, particularly the area of statistical genomics.

He's interested in using mammography and machine learning techniques to improve risk prediction and the stratification of women by their future risk of breast cancer, with the aim of assisting the creation of personalised screening programmes.

"AI currently sits at the heart of the top five fastest-growing jobs in Australia* and is growing more important across all organisational areas and industries." Daniel believes graduates entering today's job market need to better understand this technology and it's limitations. Find out how you can gain the knowledge and skills to drive, shape and harness the growth of AI - and make responsible, informed contributions to our future at the Graduate Study Expo.

Our Information Technology change makers

Find out how the work and thought-leadership of our Information Technology researchers is having a positive impact on the world.

  • Social de-skilling: the art of being human in the era of ‘smart’ machines

    Will the rise of algorithmic decision-making and AI threaten the essential elements of being human?

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning: separating the hype from reality using social research

    Don’t worry, your self-driving car won’t kill you – as long as research focuses on people and society, too.

  • Image-based abuse: the disturbing phenomenon of the 'deepfake'

    The popularity of face-swapping software has resulted in the disturbing trend of 'deepfakes' that can be used for nefarious purposes.

  • AI may decide the outcome in civil disputes

    An AI court system isn't a distant dream. “It’s here, it’s happening,” says former chief justice Marilyn Warren.
