Working with Australian Universities
University of Melbourne
Leidos Australia is committed to supporting our National Intelligence Community and Australian Defence Force research and development. Accordingly, we have initiated a joint investment with the University of Melbourne exploring new ways to bring augmented cloud based AI/ML into the online influence and disinformation arenas.
In 2020, Leidos Australia entered a combined AUS-U.S. team in the University of Melbourne’s international analytic tournament, hosted by the University’s Hunt Laboratory for Intelligence Research. Teams competed to solve complex and realistic intelligence-type problems and produce reports rated by a panel of trained judges. The Challenge invited innovation from intelligence agencies across Five Eyes countries, but open to government or private organisations with intelligence functions.
Leidos Australia is very proud of our association with the University of Melbourne and these joint initiatives are a great way to strengthen our bonds and expand our relationship in the market.
Most recently, Leidos Australia become an endorsement Partner for the University’s MicroCert – Recognising and Managing Disinformation. This Agreement is a first for Leidos Australia and extends our relationship beyond research with Australia’s leading university to actively building the workforce skills of the future is addition to our collaborative research agenda.
