At CeBIT Australia this year international experts will give a fascinating insight into  the future of business technology in Australia.

The speakers will take part in a special FutureTech Stagepresentation and will discuss a range of topics that are expected to have a major impact on business in the future.

This includes the Internet of Things (IoT), FinTech, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning.

Running alongside the Big Data and Analytics, Cloud, eGovernment and Cyber Security conferences, will be three curated FutureTech agendas.

Each speaker will share insights into the cutting-edge technologies that are shaping the future of business and address opportunities and challenges Australian businesses currently face when adapting to technological advancements.

From the machine-to-machine economy, disruptions to banks and investment systems, the automation of traditional jobs and the misplaced fear of AI technologies, the FutureTech Stage will offer fresh perspectives and expert discussions over two days (May 15-16) of the three-day CeBIT Australia event.

Presenters include:

  • Professor Toby Walsh, author of Machines That Think: The Future of Artificial Intelligence, and Professor of Artificial Intelligence, UNSW
  • Tommy Mermelshtayn, Chief Strategy Officer, zipMoney
