Chinese tech giant Lenovo’s data centre group DCG is partnering with the University of Adelaide’s Australian Institute for Machine Learning to provide businesses with better access to the technology, expertise and research required to successfully launch an investment in machine learning projects.

Under the partnership between Lenovo DCG and AIML, Australian and New Zealand businesses will be provided with both the IT systems and machine learning expertise required to identify, investigate and test the optimum areas within their business to invest in machine learning and deep learning applications.

“The partnership with the AIML provides customers with a pathway to cutting edge technology and the expertise of the Australian leader in machine learning,” says Rob Makin, general manager and group director, Lenovo Data Centre Group.

“By working with AIML, Lenovo is bringing leading technology and researchers together to tackle customer challenges and deliver on the promise of machine learning and deep learning applications.”

A recent research survey, commissioned by Lenovo DCG and conducted by YouGov Galaxy, found that four in five IT managers in Australia (79%) are currently investing in artificial intelligence (AI) projects within their organisations.

And, despite the level of investment, the survey found that more than half of the companies surveyed (53%) do not believe that their organisation has a clear understanding of AI, machine learning and deep learning.

“Typically, when a business faces a challenge, they do not have access to the resources or expertise to develop AI applications that can address their specific need. The partnership brings together the technology and knowledge needed to start a business on its AI journey,” Makin said.

Professor Anton van den Hengel, director of the Australian Institute of Machine Learning at the University of Adelaide, said, “Working with Lenovo gives our research team access to the best technology on the market. This partnership will continue the growth trajectory of machine learning research in The University of Adelaide and provide Australian businesses with access to the full benefits of machine learning and deep learning applications.”

In Australia, the primary use for machine learning and deep learning applications in business is security, and the research found that 13% of organisations with over 100 employees are already using the technology for security/firewalls/spam filters – while the main driving force behind machine learning and deep learning comes from IT managers (38%) and the board of directors (21%).

“The development and adoption of machine learning and deep learning applications stands drive a new wave of growth around the world. By partnering with AIML, Lenovo DCG will help facilitate this growth in Australian business and deliver on the tangible benefits the technology offers."
