With two Q&A panels, parallel workshops after lunch, and an interactive futures session on ‘digital humans’ in the afternoon, DISRUPT.SYDNEY 2018 is shaping up to be another engaging highlight.
Join Kai Riemer, Michela Ledwidge and Sandra Peter as they chat with MIKE, a virtual, digital human.
Join us at our Vivid Ideas event! What will our lives be like when we live with digital humans? In a world first, our panel of experts will join a live interactive, photo-realistic computer generated digital person on stage to look at the long term ethical and social issues we will be facing with digital humans. Join leading experts and researchers from the University of Sydney Business School and Sydney Business Insights as they explore how far we should let them in.
The session will draw upon three years of research into automation and the future of work by Leslie Willcocks and Mary Lacity, covering multiple industries, applications, and shared services, and uses case studies to establish action principles that mitigate automation risks.
20 Talks, 10 Bars, 1 Night. Join us on October 25th, 2017 as we share our expertise and knowledge with our community by taking 20 academics, including Sandra and Kai, out of the classroom and into 10 of the best bars in Sydney.
We live in disruptive times. When markets and society change in unprecedented, unpredictable ways, understanding the future is no longer a matter of extrapolating from the past. The future is created and has to be actively imagined.
The Digital Disruption Research Group and Sydney Business Insights were joined by speakers Euan Semple, Simon Terry, Sandra Peter, and Anne Bartlett-Bragg who shared their experiences and debated the key issues facing leadership teams in the digital future of business. This panel was chaired by Professor Kai Riemer, leader of the DDRG .
DISRUPT.SYDNEY.2016, in its 4th year, is Australia’s first and oldest disruption conference. In 2016 we engaged deeply with the topic of change itself. Our speakers and workshop facilitators addressed a range of crucial questions.
Two of the biggest challenges facing modern organisations in disrupted marketplaces are 1) to rapidly create new insights and 2) to accelerate professional development and knowledge transfer to stay on top of change. This workshop brings together the ground-breaking work of Gary Klein in these areas.
