Starting with a visit to the Mixed Reality exhibition by the Hon Karen Andrews, Day One of D61+ LIVE examined the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Australia’s data-driven future, industry’s digital opportunities, and the immense potential of artificial intelligence.

Collaboration was a reoccurring theme throughout the day, with Karen Andrews encouraging partnership between government, science and technology, while CSIRO Chairman David Thodey asking that we recognise achievement and work together to make a difference.

Everything from massive data sets coupled with sensors and automation being the new oil (Dr. Kathy Foley), tackling deep fakes and misinformation (Cyber resilience: adopting an opportunity vs. risk culture), artificial intelligence reshaping how we diagnose mental health (AI for Health booth) and how the technology industry can flourish in Australia rather than relocating overseas (Going Global).

 

Former CIA and Facebook employee Yaël Eisenstat spoke about digital deceit and the power of engagement, while the Smart Cities panel tackled sustainability challenges in the metropolitans of the future as the Robotics and Autonomous System’s team demonstrated bot Gizmo’s moves at the other end of the exhibition hall.

We look forward to welcoming you to Day Two of D61+ LIVE at Carriageworks in Sydney tomorrow, with keynotes, panels and masterclasses exploring and solving some of the biggest digital and technological challenges that still remain.
