External Keynote Speaker: Who Can You Trust In The Digital Age?

From government to business, banks to the media, trust in institutions is at an all-time low. We might have lost faith in some organisations and leaders, but millions of people hop into cars with strangers, exchange digital currencies, or depend on algorithms for recommendations. We still trust: but not the way we used to. Digital technologies are creating one of the biggest trust shifts in history – from institutions to individuals – and we are being asked to leap faster and higher than ever. But in an era where we are increasingly alarmed about issues like tech addiction and privacy, how can we be persuaded over the chasm of fear and encouraged to take a risk on something new? Drawing on her latest book Who Can You Trust?, Rachel explains why trust and influence now lie more with ‘the people’ – family, friends, colleagues, even strangers – than with experts or elites. This eye-opening keynote provides a dynamic guide to how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired in the digital age.

Top 10 Technology Trends for 2019

As we enter the fourth year of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” – the era of connected intelligence, our relationships with technology and its impact on global society will come into even sharper focus. The reality of the revolution is both promising and threatening. The primary new technologies of this decade – Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, mobile/5G, cybersecurity, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) – are even more significant and impactful than we may realise. They are powerful actors that can change the core of society. They are beginning to intersect and produce what is sometimes referred to as ‘combinatorial innovation,’ with software at the epicentre and connected intelligence the end result. Left unchecked, these technologies and complex interactions will shape us. We can expect more regulation if companies don’t move to sensible self-regulation. It is critical that we look ahead into what is possible, lead and thoughtfully shape this fourth industrial revolution. If we succeed, the outlook for information technology to impact and improve our lives will be very bright.

HEALTHCARE AGENDA

Information is fuelling the continued transformation of healthcare, enabling a system that can address the growing challenges of quality, equity, and cost. But as health systems and hospitals digitally transform, and as they increase their ability to acquire and process clinical information, it’s important to consider how effectively they are using that information to drive improved care processes. Are such organisations fully leveraging the information opportunity before them?

 

Between hoping for better healthcare and delivering it, there’s a bridge.

If you can imagine it, we will build the bridge to get you there.

Challenges and Opportunities for Technology Catalysed Transformations in Healthcare

Innovation in healthcare is a complex process that requires the weaving together of skills sets ranging from social sciences through to information and technology design.  Australian healthcare providers are often limited in their ability to access this broad set of capabilities in a coordinated fashion, in sync with the organisation’s requirements.  Cisco has partnered with two of Australia’s leading design and technology focused Universities (RMIT and Flinders Universities) to look at how this problem can be approached by establishing deep engagements with a small number of Australia’s foremost care providers.  This presentation outlines this story, how it is being driven and the outcomes we are looking to drive.  It also talks to how hospitals and care providers around ANZ and the region can participate.

RETAIL AGENDA

Consumers are more digitally savvy than ever before. A new generation of consumers is changing the way we approach retail experiences. People no longer ‘go shopping’—they shop all the time. What does this mean for the digital retail experience you’re delivering? With e-commerce and online shopping platforms emerging, the channels of distribution have transformed and are changing the entire marketplace. The future of retail lies in a single word: experience.

 

Between craving a better experience and delivering it, there’s a bridge.

If you can imagine it, we will build the bridge to get you there.

Top 10 Technology Trends for 2019

As we enter the fourth year of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” – the era of connected intelligence, our relationships with technology and its impact on global society will come into even sharper focus. The reality of the revolution is both promising and threatening. The primary new technologies of this decade – Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, mobile/5G, cybersecurity, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) – are even more significant and impactful than we may realise. They are powerful actors that can change the core of society. They are beginning to intersect and produce what is sometimes referred to as ‘combinatorial innovation,’ with software at the epicentre and connected intelligence the end result. Left unchecked, these technologies and complex interactions will shape us. We can expect more regulation if companies don’t move to sensible self-regulation. It is critical that we look ahead into what is possible, lead and thoughtfully shape this fourth industrial revolution. If we succeed, the outlook for information technology to impact and improve our lives will be very bright.

TRANSPORTATION AGENDA

Transportation is the lifeblood of any city. An efficient, safe, and secure network is critical to support an increasingly mobile population. Digital business transformation is a journey toward adopting and deploying digital technologies and business models that measurably improve performance. How are you using technology to inform, connect, predict and enable key transportation outcomes?

 

Between craving a better experience and delivering it, there’s a bridge.

If you can imagine it, we will build the bridge to get you there.

External Keynote Speaker: Who Can You Trust In The Digital Age?

From government to business, banks to the media, trust in institutions is at an all-time low. We might have lost faith in some organisations and leaders, but millions of people hop into cars with strangers, exchange digital currencies, or depend on algorithms for recommendations. We still trust: but not the way we used to. Digital technologies are creating one of the biggest trust shifts in history – from institutions to individuals – and we are being asked to leap faster and higher than ever. But in an era where we are increasingly alarmed about issues like tech addiction and privacy, how can we be persuaded over the chasm of fear and encouraged to take a risk on something new? Drawing on her latest book Who Can You Trust?, Rachel explains why trust and influence now lie more with ‘the people’ – family, friends, colleagues, even strangers – than with experts or elites. This eye-opening keynote provides a dynamic guide to how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired in the digital age.

What Role Does Technology Play in Informing, Connecting, Predicting and Enabling Future Transport?

Technology allows for a smoother flow of traffic, reducing congestion and secondary collisions as well as overall fuel/energy consumption, and paves the way for a foundation upon which connected, autonomous vehicles can communicate with their surrounding environment. It can help simplify operations through automated, real-time updates to digital signage based on roadway and weather conditions as well as improved communication to first responders regarding traffic injuries and collisions. Are our organisations optimizing the use of technology?

 

Jeff Sharp, General Manager, Technology, Partnership and Innovation Tech, Transurban

 

1:30pm – 2:15pm

Panel: Transport Safety – Are we putting too much trust in technology?

There is no doubt that technology has played a major role in improving transport safety especially as we work towards automation. However, are there risks that have been overlooked with embracing technology at the current pace?

Panel: Data in Transport – Why won’t we share?

Transportation modes are becoming increasingly integrated, connected, and in the near future, automated. There is the potential to explore new opportunities, combining data and insights from multiple sources to lead towards more intelligent, efficient use of multimodal transportation assets and creating new business models. However, there continues to be challenges and resistance around sharing data which precludes the next generation of Transportation services from being realised. This panel discussion brings together a number of experts from different areas to explore the reasons behind why we don’t share data and the reasons why we should.
