With the announcement of NCI funding, the infrastructure is now in a good place to look forwards and is placing itself as a facility to assist in solving the next science challenges. It has an opportunity to build for future innovation and discovery.

It took nearly a decade of steady work to put in place a strong platform by which Earth Observation infrastructure is at the modern level, and to open a range of opportunities. A result of this is Geoscience Australia's Digital Earth Australia project, and the vast range of important initiatives that this generates. Other areas that relates to Geoscience Australia's ambition are still progressing.

Dr Ben Evans is the Associate Director for Research Engagements and Initiatives at the Australian National University's NCI. He has a PhD from the ANU and since 1995, he has worked in high performance computing including being involved in the original formation of the NCI. Dr Evans has been a strong supporter of Geoscience Australia's HPC journey.

This talk is presented as part of the Wednesday Seminar Series.
