Hey hey! I’m going on tour for the Australian Computer Society’s Education Across the Nation (EdXN) series. Starting late March (full list of dates and links for tickets below), I’ll be visiting each capital city to speak about The Future of All the Things.
I also have a limited number of meeting spots available. So, drop me a line if you’d like to speak with me about how I can help your organisation playfully prepare for the future while I’m in your city.
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.
