Victoria University is one of New Zealand's most respected universities. Based in the seismically active area of Wellington and subject to several significant earthquakes in recent years, the university's Infrastructure Services team was tasked with the development of a disaster recovery (DR) data centre.
Researchers from the University of Warwick in the UK and York University in Canada have created a molecular communications system which can be used for the transmission of messages and data in challenging environments.
The Validyne HD310 Data Acquisition System enables high-speed monitoring of multichannel nuclear power plant systems. The model's flexibility means the device can be modified or expanded to the changing requirements of the user's needs.
Computer scientists at McGill University have developed an online puzzle game, called Phylo, which also contributes to genetic research. The game has been played by 300,000 people over the past three years - now, its creators are making the players available to scientists around the globe.
The Catlin Global Reef Record is a free global database and standardised research tool relating to major coral reef ecosystems.
A national integrated geoscience data network is being developed by CSIRO, Geoscience Australia and AuScope. The network is designed to break down barriers and open access to Australia’s wealth of geoscience data.
A team of Australian engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has demonstrated a quantum bit based on the nucleus of a single atom in silicon, promising dramatic improvements for data processing in ultrapowerful quantum computers of the future.

Researchers at Imperial College London have developed an artificially intelligent (AI) computer program that has itself designed a video game for the Christmas season, which can be downloaded for free.
A decade ago, a British philosopher put forth the notion that the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation run by our descendants. While that seems far-fetched, perhaps even incomprehensible, a team of physicists at the University of Washington has come up with a potential test to see if the idea holds water.
Optibrium and Digital Chemistry, providers of software and database solutions for drug discovery, have announced an agreement to collaborate on the integration of Digital Chemistry’s Bioster database of precedented bioisostere replacements with Optibrium’s StarDrop software suite.
Patients and their doctors can now get up-to-date information about pathology testing on their smartphones whenever and wherever they need it.
An event at the University of New England (UNE) last month marked the beginning of a new era of research on the plants of north-eastern NSW and the UNE’s contribution to botany.
