This year’s The Australian 2020 Research Special Report has named QUT as the top robotics group in Australia, based on the group with the most citations in the top 20 journals in the field over the past 5 years.
It also named QUT Alumni and now at CSIRO’s Data61 Inkyu Sa as the top-cited robotics researcher.
Inkyu is both an alumni of the QUT PhD program (supervised by Peter Corke) and a former QUT Postdoc. While at QUT, he was lead author on an influential paper, DeepFruits: A fruit detection system using deep neural networks, which was widely cited by other researchers.
