A2I2   began operations as an Institute in January 2019.  The Institute was formed by merging two groups already established at the University; PRaDA (Pattern Recognition and Data Analytics) recognised internationally for its groundbreaking work in machine learning and pattern recognition and DSTIL (Deakin Software and Technology Innovation Laboratory) which has  transformed complex ideas into user-friendly software systems, including mobile and web applications.
