overview

Thriving and surviving the 4th Industrial Revolution

The innovation agenda has failed to impress disgruntled voters. Yet technological disruption appears to be gaining pace as it transforms the business landscape. As well as dealing with the competitive threats, how can Australian government and business exploit the opportunities this fourth industrial revolution throws up?

Discussing the policy framework for transforming Australia’s innovation agenda during this unique and unprecedented time, the summit examines how organisations from the blue chip to the start-up are grappling with formulating, implementing and measuring the success of their innovation initiatives to embrace these opportunities fully. The two-day summit will look closely at policy settings, systems and values that can better serve Australians as we ride the technological wave. It will also provide a platform to discuss ethical issues, values and legislating and regulating emerging technologies such as the internet of things (IoT) , artificial intelligence/machine learning and much more. The summit will highlight Australian initiatives that truly make us world leaders whilst investigating the pathways to success, inspiring Australians to embrace a global market and competition at an opportune time.
