AmCham with Adelaide Business School
We live in interesting times.
Industry 4.0 technologies have potential to provide a major boost to Australia’s economic competitiveness. To keep our eye on this economic prize we need to keep across what society wants from the future. Humans remain focused on the four main pillars of society – food, health, relationships and work. The advances in technology are providing tools to make our society a better place to live.
By embracing technology and innovation, Australia can continue to prosper. We’re on the road to the internet of things where everything is connected, not only to the internet but also to one another. Adam Oliver, State Director of Telstra will talk about the impact of 5G on productivity and economic growth.
Jennie Sage, Country Manager for Next door will discuss how the internet has changed forever the way people meet, stay in touch, find a job and fall in love. Social networking has opened up possibilities that allow people to look beyond their immediate friends, friends of friends, and co-workers, enabling new connectivity and relationships in the future.
At the Australian Institute of Machine Learning; automation is making life a little bit easier but it is also likely to make some jobs redundant. Professor Anton van den Hengel Founding Director will look at how are we leveraging our long-established defence industry, health and bio-tech, and newly emerging space industry to ensure we remain competitive on a global scale.
