Description

The 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us. Whether you believe emerging technologies such as AI and Robotics spell the end of life as we know it, or the beginning of a human renaissance, the next decade holds many opportunities and pitfalls. We will need to manage across diversity, education and automation and deal with the augmentation of our workforce.

Grab breakfast with us early Oct 13th at the beautiful Tower Two Barangaroo, as we kick off our event with speaker Michael Priddis, who will discuss the future of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics and the Internet of Everything.

Mike will focus on the impact of automation and what the jobs landscape will look like in 10 years-time, in addition to sharing new data and insights leveraging publiclyavailable workforce data and Faethm's recently launched predictive analytics platform, Tandem.

An expert panel will then focus on how we move from the myriad of reports and publications defining the problem, to the actions individuals, industry and governments can take to prepare for and benefit from the automation opportunity for Australia. They'll be ready to take your questions and discuss a variety of topics such as:

  • Why such divergent views of this problem?
  • Who owns the problem?
  • What actions can any organisation take to benefit from this future?
