- Brendan McCane, Steven Mills and Holger Regenbrecht are associate investigators in a Science for Technological Innovation (a National Science Challenge) Spearhead Project worth $2,000,000 called: "Karetao Hangarau-a-Mahi: Adaptive learning robots to complement the human workforce". July 2017-June 2019.
- Alistair Knott is co-investigator on the AI and Law in New Zealand project (together with Colin Gavaghan from Law, and James Maclaurin from Philosophy). This grant, worth $337K, was awarded by the New Zealand Law Foundation, and runs from 2017 to 2020.
- Stefanie Zollmann - $300,000 Marsden award for her project 'Bringing 3D to home videos'.
- Stefanie Zollmann - $1,000,000 MBIE research funding award. Her three-year project is called "Situated visualisation to enrich sports experience for on-site spectators". Secured September 2017.
- Yawen Chen's Marsden-funded project secured in 2016 is entitled 'Optical Network-on-Chips (ONoCs): Architectures and Routing Algorithms for Ultra High-Throughput and Energy-Efficient On-Chip Communications'.
- Brendan McCane is an associate investigator in the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, in the Photonic Sensors and Imaging theme. His interests are in analysing the images that are created by these new sensors and technologies.
- Brendan McCane has an applied research contract with InterAg, a NZ company focusing on using infrared thermography for assessing animal health and welfare. The research involves in locating important parts of the animal from thermal images (e.g. their eyes or nostrils).
- Michael Albert is a principal investigator in the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, on the theme Quantum Manipulation and Information. His current project ran from 2015-2016, and focussed on Quantum Debugging, and employed Matthew McKague.
- Michael is also a co-investigator on Finding structure in sets of permutations (Icelandic Research Fund, 2014-17, PI: Dr Henning Ulfarsson).
- Alistair Knott and Lubica Benuskova had a Marsden project, running from 2014-2017: Does language mirror the structure of sensorimotor cognition? The project employed two postdoctoral researchers: Martin Takac and Lech Szymanski.
- Steven Mills is a consultant on a project to develop a vine-pruning robot, led by Richard Green at the University of Canterbury, also involving Lincoln University, funded by MBIE. Steven's involvement relates to computer vision aspects of the work.
