Public Lecture by Senior Professor Pascal Perez SMART Infrastructure Facility, University of Wollongong
Wednesday 24 October 5:30 - 7:00pm
Five technologies that are supposed to change our lives...really?
Public media, industry outlets and research publications all converge to promote the next digital revolution. From smart cities to smart industries and infrastructure, this revolution will have a profound impact on the liveability of our communities, the productivity of our cities and the resilience of our infrastructure. The ‘Big Five’ conspire to make this vision a reality: artificial intelligence, internet of things, automated vehicles, virtual reality and blockchain transactions. As often with revolutions, this digital movement is riddled with frequent approximations, slight omissions and a few downright lies. Should we be afraid? Probably not…Should we be aware? Definitely yes! This public lecture is being delivered by Senior Professor Pascal Perez from the SMART Infrastructure Facility, University of Wollongong.
