Event overview

Building on the success of CEDA’s Digital Bytes program over the previous two years, and with added emphasis on innovation policy at both the state and federal level, CEDA is delighted to introduce the Innovation and Disruption series in 2017 to CEDA’s broad-based membership.

To launch the series, CEDA is examining the fourth industrial revolution and its impacts on society due to the trend of automation, the internet of things, cloud computing, and advanced data analytics.

While the pace of change is unprecedented and presents challenges for governments, industry, and workers alike; Industry 4.0 also presents vast opportunities that are vital to Australia’s continued economic transition.

CEDA’s opening event in its 2017 Innovation and Disruption series will examine:

  • A road map for the fourth industrial revolution – where have we come and where are we going?
  • How the internet of things and advanced data analytics is shaping commerce and the modern workplace?
  • Winners and losers in the fourth industrial revolution – where are the opportunities for economic growth?
  • Preparing our future workforce and ensuring that our portions of our current workforce are not left behind.
