Signals, Information and Machine Intelligence Lab (SIMIL)

About Us

SIMIL brings together the expertise of a number of academics from the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications at UNSW who specialise in speech, image and signal processing, machine learning, system identification and modelling, telecommunications, networking, control theory and high-performance computing.

It aims to work collaboratively with researchers and research teams to collaboratively develop methods for predictive data and signal analytics and machine learning systems.

In order to develop and validate these systems, we have access to and experience with a number of computing platforms ranging from GPU compute capable workstations to UNSW’s Katana computing cluster and the Raijin cluster at NCI Australia.
