We need long-term visionary plans for increasing migration, and creative, interconnected urban development to house the State’s projected population in safe, green, spaces with well-serviced infrastructure,” said UWA PPI Director Professor Shamit Saggar.

Responding to Professor Eun-Jung Holden and Professor Mark Reynolds’s great piece on the significance of responsible and ethical big-data usage, titled “Responsible data-driven decisions for modern society” (p. 59), DUG chief information officer Dr Stuart Midgley said: “The increasingly data-driven nature of decision making and knowledge transformation not only highlights the fundamental importance of accessible high-performance computing (HPC) resources, but also thrusts the need for environmentally sustainable computing into the spotlight. To address the growing requirements of WA’s society and the associated challenges, reliable, well-supported, green HPC is paramount.
