This scholarship is valued at $6000 and is tenable for 1 year.
International student applicants must have completed their undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney.
This scholarship was established in 2022 to support an honours-level student working on the research project Using Advanced IoT-based Machine Learning for In-Home Quality Ageing.
The project leverages in-home behavioural data coupled with contextual data related to age group, ethnicity, and other parameters to provide a highly personalized detection and prevention of adverse events that negatively affect the quality of in-home aging. The study consists of analyzing individual and aggregate living patterns and activities of the elderly based on IoT data. The goal is to provide an efficient career response protocol by developing machine learning algorithms for detecting and predicting adverse health events for the elderly in a non-obstructive way.
