Japanese conglomerate Fujitsu has opened the Australian Digital Transformation Centre (DTC) at Macquarie University in Sydney. The facility will serve as a space where Fujitsu customers in Australia and New Zealand can garther to create digital transformation solutions together.
Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand CEO Mike Foster has spoken about the facility’s purposes. “We have a strong focus on encouraging innovation, and the DTC is a place where imagination can meet possibility to shape a successful digital future,” he said. “Working closely with Macquarie University paves the way for future collaborative ventures between Fujitsu and the University, where corporate and academia can work together on innovative projects that would benefit from a diversity of talent.”
The CEO added that workshops will be arranged at the DTC on a regular basis to create tangible solutions on digital transformation.
The Australian facility is the sixth for Fujitsu after the company opened five DTCs in Tokyo, Osaka, Munich, London and New York.
Recently, Fujitsu, Macquarie University and GE Healthcare and Macquarie Medical Imaging jointly conducted research on how to use artificial intelligence (AI) for faster and more efficient brain aneurysm detection and monitoring.
As the project’s leader, the Japanese conglomerate will use AI solutions to examine images of the brain taken by GE’s medical imaging scanner. Macquarie University and Macquarie Medical Imaging will then try to detect brain abnormalities and aneurysms using the algorithms.
Fujitsu Australia has also partnered with Kia Motors Australia on the production of a police car prototype for police forces in the hopes of simplifying their vehicles and reducing prices.
