Discover what’s essential in the tech market of today and tomorrow’s trends with Dr Kate Raynes-Goldie, an award-winning game designer and educator.

If you’ve ever wandered through the maze of tech trends and wondered what will last, Dr Kate Raynes-Goldie will lead the way. From augmented reality to Bitcoin, Kate will speak about key trends in technology in her EdXN talk, “The Future of All the Things,” and how these trends will shape and inspire your work and business. 

Dr Kate Raynes-Goldie is an educator, technology analyst and award-winning augmented and mixed reality game designer. She has spoken at top academic and industry conferences, including SXSW (Austin), NXNE (Toronto) and TEDx Perth, and has been featured on MTV, BoingBoing, NPR, Elle and The Australian Financial Review.

 

About The Future of All the Things

We are living in an unprecedented age with unprecedented potential.

In the 2000s, the Internet and social media reformed the way we work and live. Now multiple disruptive and transformative technologies are on the horizon. From virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) to automation, we are in a time of accelerated change. With that change comes pivotal potential for a bright future.

The challenge for both professionals and organisations becomes how to select the trends and technologies that matter.

Kate’s EdXN talk will accessibly explain key trends and technologies. You will discover what matters in the tech world and what it might mean for your work or business, today and tomorrow.

You will learn about hot trends: how the aerospace industry is using mixed reality to train astronauts and how the resource sector is using virtual reality to improve worksite safety, how Blockchain (the asset platform behind Bitcoin) is being used for clean energy distribution and how citizen science, big data and algorithms are being used for drug-free, effective contraception.

You will also learn about how these technologies intersect and enable new ways of working, living and learning. From co-living to co-working spaces, from exotic business to the digital nomads, to guaranteed minimum income, the way we work and live is forever changing, and changing forever.

The original dreams of early Internet pioneers of a freer, decentralised society look even more possible: the potential for a human-focused future is becoming more real.
