About Us

Charles Sturt University is a young and growing university committed to developing far-sighted people who help their communities grow and flourish. We make a significant contribution to the prosperity and vibrancy of our rural and regional communities, with a reach and impact across Australia and internationally. We work together with industry, communities and students to create new thinking, inspire each other and make a positive and progressive contribution to the world.

Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Futures Institute (AICF) is a new research Institute at Charles Sturt University aiming to become a world class research centre of excellence in data science, artificial intelligence, and cyber security, to pursue the agenda of regional discovery, showing how AI developed 'off the beaten track and 'in the wild can better serve not only rural and regional communities, but society as a whole, creating a new comparative advantage for Australia internationally.

Our aim is to develop a centre of excellence in regional NSW. We'll do this by:

  • building trustworthy data-driven systems and embedding transparent reporting practices in all AI-related research
  • promoting inclusive interoperable AI design relevant not only to cities, but also to rural areas
  • maintaining ethical integrity of AI-driven designs, which should not exploit rural populations for the benefit of urban systems
  • encouraging respectful co-creation between regions and cities.

We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and inclusion. This is demonstrated through our Workplace Gender Equality Agency Employer of Choice Citation and our Athena SWAN Bronze Institutional Award. Charles Sturt is also a participating member in the Australian Workplace Equality Index.
