Society 4.0 - 2018

Shaping the digital economy for good

In November 2018 we hosted our inaugural Society 4.0 Forum to discuss the emerging digital economy - what it may mean for citizens, workers’ rights and wellbeing in a world where data is the new currency, artificial intelligence may be used to drive decisions and automation is the norm.

The event was attended by almost 100 people from a diverse range of organisations to listen to informed and inspiring talks by speakers including Nick Davis from the World Economic Forum, Edward Santow from the Australian Human Rights Commission, Vyki Englert from BrightHive and Tris Lumley from Think New Philanthropy Capital. With the focus on how to shape the new digital economy for good, Nick commented that “Swinburne and the Social Innovation Research Institute can bring big value by making the process of technology development across all sectors more thoughtful, more structured and of more long-term benefit to Australians.”
