Dr Andy Bond is Director, Future Mobility at QUT. His role looks to the future of transport through the perspective of new technology opportunities and patterns of use based on work in road safety, law, and robotics. Prior to QUT, Andy spent a decade in digital health with the Australian Government working on electronic health records and health informatics. He has played a leading role in digital health standards, in particular in the application of national and international digital health architecture and interoperability. His early career was in research and development culminating in the position of Chief Scientist at the Distributed Systems Technology Centre (DSTC) where he was responsible for client engagement with research and the transition of technology into commercial opportunities. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the Victoria University of Wellington, which investigated the application of artificial intelligence methods to the scheduling of tasks across a distributed system of computing resources, learning from and predicting behaviour and optimization.
Dr Bond has worked in distributed systems research for over 30 years, specifically in areas such as middleware, enterprise architectures, and interoperability. His work has included the Australian Government Technical Interoperability Framework (AGTIF), routing architectures for the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity, the Queensland Government Authentication Framework, and the Australian eHealth Interoperability Framework. His expertise lies in research, innovation, and technology from recognition of opportunities through to wrapping technology potential around complex problems.
