The Opportunity

Monash University Faculty of Information Technology is driven by a unifying vision: to utilise technology to achieve better social outcomes. Closely aligned to this vision is the Better Care Victoria (BCV) Innovation Fund Project, “Artificial Intelligence in carDiac arrEst” (AIDE).

This ground-breaking project is led by Ambulance Victoria (AV) and involves world-class researchers from across all three of the Faculty’s departments: Data Science & AI; Software Systems & Cybersecurity; and Human-Centred Computing.

The project also involves a collaboration with the Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority (ESTA) in Victoria. Out-of-hospital-cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a significant public health issue in Australia, affecting all ages, with few survivors.

It is a time-critical condition requiring immediate resuscitative interventions. Triple Zero (000) call-takers play a pivotal role in the early detection and provision of bystander interventions for OHCA patients. Intervention to improve the early detection of OHCA in the call has great potential to improve survival rates and long term patient outcomes.

This project aims to develop an Artificial Intelligence (AI) framework for Triple Zero (000) call-takers to use as a decision support tool. The tool will recognise potential OHCAs during the Triple Zero call and notify the call-taker of the level of probability of a cardiac arrest at the earliest possible point of recognition.

This project aims to develop a methodology that can rapidly be replicated in other cohorts such as stroke, heart attack, mental health, domestic violence and low acuity patients. It is a project that may literally save lives.

The Research Fellow will work on the AIDE project, focusing on the NLP and Machine learning components of the decision support tool. The Research Fellow is expected to design and implement new algorithms and machine learning models to analyse dialogues between callers and Triple Zero call-takers, in order to identify cardiac arrest at the earliest possible point.

This is a full-time position; however, flexible working conditions may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University may require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
