We are thrilled to announce Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell AO FTSE FAHA, Director of the School of Cybernetics, has been recognised on The Australian Top 100 Innovators List.
The List: Top 100 Innovators, celebrates and highlights future-focused leaders and companies helping to put Australia on the map as an innovative nation. Innovation takes many forms and its proponents share a common goal to help drive Australia forward, inspiring the rest of the nation to achieve continued success.
As outlined by The Australian: “Australia is a nation of early adopters. With innovations as diverse as AI-based drug making, virtual soccer leagues, orbital launch vehicles and bionic voice boxes, our entrepreneurs are working towards a common goal of propelling the country forward and inspiring the next generation.
“Amid the backdrop of a macroeconomic downturn and increasingly turbulent times, these 100 resilient innovators are reshaping Australia’s economy and leading it into the future”.
Genevieve was recognised for her work in pioneering a new approach to engineering and technology design alongside others selected for innovative contributions to thought leadership including Colette Grgic from Amazon Web Services, Ian Gardiner, co-founder of Innovation Bay, and The Hon Ed Husic MP, Minister for Industry and Science.
Today we celebrate the work of other extraordinary thinkers and leaders across the sector, and congratulate all this year’s recognised innovators. Special shout out to our colleagues from The Australian National University:
- Professors Marcus Doherty and Andrew Horsley for their work to build the world’s most powerful and accessible quantum computers;
- Kyle Hardman, Christian Freier and Paul Wigley from Nomad Atomics for their work on quantum sensors; and
- Jekaterina Viktorova and Professor Luke Connal for their work to make 3D-printed electronics a reality.
