ACS Foundation Lunch - Melbourne - 26 September

Technology Trends – Living in a Connected World

The world we live in is constantly changing.  It is a more densely populated, hungrier, older and more urbanised world than ever before.  It is also a better educated, better connected, more mobile, more personalised world than ever before.  Within the context of these global mega-trends, opportunities exist for information and communications technologies to not only be more efficient and more productive, but to transform how we live every aspect of our lives.

This presentation will highlight some global trends, and then focus on some examples a little closer to home.
