Australia's National Information and Communications Technology Research Centre of Excellence (NICTA), is leading a multi-million dollar ICT-enabled geothermal energy initiative just announced by the Australian Centre for Renewable Energy (ACRE).
Big data is going to prove the next major frontier for ICT researchers who stand poised on the 'cusp of a new age of wonder' according to Hugh Durrant-Whyte, chief executive of NICTA. The national research organisation is currently refining a tool, called Scoobi, now being tested by a range of organisations, including eBay, which allows rapid analysis of massive collections of distributed data.
The ACT Government is to fund NICTA to the tune of $3 million per year over four years, from 1 July 2012.
