Monash University scientists recognized for research into Data
Analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Information
Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Paul Bonnington and
Kimbal Marriott have received an Agilent Thought Leader Award in support
of their innovative research into Data Analytics, Machine Learning,
Artificial Intelligence, and Information Visualization.
Bonnington and Marriott are professors at Monash
University, based in Melbourne, Australia. The award includes
funding and cutting-edge instrumentation from Agilent that will
facilitate accelerated and transformational research that incorporates
intelligence gleaned from Monash University’s vast knowledge and
experience in the areas of Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial
Intelligence, and Information Visualization. The expectation is the
development of new, innovative, and smarter analytical products which
will empower scientists to better understand their own processes and
business, and ensure their laboratories are operating at maximum
efficiency, as well as support mechanisms that will significantly reduce
“There are exciting new discoveries awaiting us when we bring advanced
scientific instrumentation together with the advanced data processing
capabilities of the Faculty of IT and the eResearch Centre,” stated
Professor Paul Bonnington, Director eResearch Centre, Monash University.
“The recent great advances in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and
Human-Computer Interaction allow us to reimagine the scientific research
lab. For the first time we can build a lab that puts the scientists
first, not the scientific instruments,” stated Professor Kim Marriott,
Director Computer-Human Interaction and Creativity Group, Faculty of IT,
“Our customers are always looking for ways to enhance efficiencies in
their labs,” said Phil Binns, vice president, and general manager of
Agilent's Spectroscopy Division. “This partnership between Agilent and
Monash will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the design,
development, performance, and management of Agilent products,
differentiating both our instruments and our services.”
“It’s a thrill to have Agilent identify the value and quality of the
research and development happening here at Monash University. We are
delighted that the commitments we have made to put in place the
world-class research infrastructure necessary to support our
leading researchers and their collaborating partners, is having a
genuine global impact,” stated Professor Ian Smith, Vice-Provost
(Research & Research Infrastructure) Monash University.
“Understanding that the design of new analytical platforms is heavily
influenced by the patterns of use and operation of current platforms.
Collecting this smart data on those patterns will benefit both the
designers of Agilent instruments and their users,” Phil Binns added.
Monash University is a global leader in these fields, and renowned as
having one of the world’s strongest academic data science teams. The
university has an excellent track record of collaborative work with
business, leveraging the skills, experience, and expertise of its
