This annoys me. CSIRO don't always kick goals, in fact most things fail. The morons looking at the books for them see lots of failures for lots of money in. What they don't see is what the failures lead to. Learning. Sections like Data61 should be the reference and go-to point for all things data and AI here in Australia. Instead, they've been hobbled and barely able to tread water with requests and outcomes. The end result is that instead of passing on lessons learned to businesses, all businesses get to learn the failures themselves and in isolation. Net result is large productivity losses and greater risk adversity, which means less exports and this means less government revenue. If they had the comprehension to look a the bigger picture, it's an overall net loss for the economy. Old MCB covered it nicely on 60 minutes recently: 1 billion a year in revenue and our "leaders" couldn't even comprehend that they're an export company, yet alone what they do.
