International BAE IMCRC Narrative Visualisation Scholarships in Australia

  • Phd
  • $37,285 p.a.

The University of South Australia is welcoming applications for a PhD position in lmmersive Analytics and Data Storytelling to work on the project "Application of Narrative Visualisation and Big Data to Improve High Value Manufacturing" funded by BAE Systems and the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre.

The successful applicant will explore and develop visualisation and data storytelling systems in immersive environments-including virtual reality, augmented reality, and tabletop displays-to elucidate insight in advanced manufacturing environments. Manufacturing in Defence inherently relies on participants in the supply chain performing at a very high-quality level without full visibility of what is happening elsewhere in the chain. Human-in-the-loop decision making is fundamental in high value complex manufacturing, both to correct defects and increase operational efficiency. The problem is a latency of presenting appropriate data to the critical decision makers. Data captured from disparate Industry 4.0 technologies can be transformed into a trusted data driven decision support tool, based on big data and smart visualisation techniques.
