NSW Division Innovation Series - Digital Disruption

Published 25th Jul 17 12:00 AM
The NSW Division presents the third instalment in our Innovation Series: Digital Disruption.

Have you noticed the emerging proliferation of data sensors, the Internet of things, analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics, augmented and virtual reality? The digital realm is increasingly disrupting business as usual in the mainstream, but what about for those of us in the environment sector? What technologies are most relevant to us and our organisations, which of them are mature enough to be used now, and if not, when will they be so? What strategy should be taken to best respond to these rapidly growing trends?

Learn how leading service providers, large organisations and their environmental practitioners are getting their heads around the challenges and opportunities that digital disruption presents. The speakers will each be able their unique perspectives as IT specialists, sustainability managers, representatives from the private sector, public sector and developers of the technology. Several illustrative case studies on key technologies and their applications here in NSW will also be included.

Presentations will be given by:

  • Chris Fechner, Chief Information Officer from NSW Department of Planning & Environment
  • Lee Stewart, Head of Sustainability of Fujitsu
  • Rick Walters, General Manager, Sustainability from UGL

After presentations have been delivered, a panel session will be convened to discuss this fascinating topic.
