While we have come a long way since the days of computers that took up an entire room, brick-sized mobile phones and Walkman personal stereos, in some ways the future of technology has only just begun.
With ground breaking advances in 3D printing, cognitive computing and other emerging trends now upon us, Australia’s ICT industry is continuing to push the boundaries of innovation - with a wide range of exciting and world leading careers and opportunities available to us as a result.
Please join us for a two course lunch and drinks and prepare to be blown away by this year’s ICT Trends presenters, each of whom are working on some of Australia’s most incredible ICT innovations and technologies.
The 2014 ICT Trends topics will include:
- Cognitive computing – and the ways in which this innovative, futuristic technology is used today to drive businesses across a wide range of industries, with cognitive computing systems like IBM Watson now able to process natural language, interact with people, propose and evaluate hypotheses… and learn along the way.
- Advances in 3D printing – and the implications that printing body parts and organs, food, makeup, weapons and machinery can have - socially, morally and economically.
- Emerging technologies that can affect our privacy and security – and the numerous ways in which they are starting to challenge and impact privacy on both an individual and organisational level. With the sci-fi technology that was previously reserved for blockbuster movies already a reality, it’s time to raise our risk awareness.
Following the presentations, our 2014 ICT Trends speakers will participate in a panel and interactive Q&A session. During the event you will also have opportunity to network - with over 200 guests expected to attend, you will be sure to make some great connections on the day!
If you're an ICT professional - or student - don't miss the chance to join others in the local ICT industry to celebrate the innovations that are being developed today which will impact businesses and the community tomorrow.
