Meet John Thangarajah: artificial intelligence expert - RMIT University


With his research into artificial intelligence, he sees potential to make a significant difference in the defence and emergency management sectors. His expertise in this area also forms the basis for his teaching in both the Master of Information Technology and the Master of Computer Science at RMIT University. We spoke to him to find out more about his passion for this increasingly relevant area of IT. I'm an Associate Professor in Artificial Intelligence within the School of Science and my work is focused on conducting research in a range of topics in artificial intelligence (AI). I also teach programming and specialist AI courses in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs; supervise a number of projects in smart systems product development; and I'm the program coordinator for the Bachelor of Computer Science.
