Event description

Technology is flipping the world upside down. Proudly presented by Murdoch Launchpad, 'Ready or Not: The Tech Takeover' will be the first event of its kind in WA.

By pairing esteemed academics with trailblazing tech entrepreneurs, the event pioneers for a series of nuanced conversations around the ethical and social implications of disruptive technology, especially the role of education in facilitating (or being a victim of) the tech transformation. The event aims to champion critical thinking and embrace the complex realities that we are collectively facing, and most importantly how to translate this into productive decision-making. 

Event structure and speakers:

  • 5.30-6 PM: Curious about AI revolution and its impacts on job security, systematic biases, and the education sector? Hear exclusive insights from Schellie-Jayne Price, who's leading the AI law practice as a partner at Stirling & Rose and Sarada Lee, Co-Founder of Perth Learning Machine Group. 

  • 6.05-6.35 PM: Concern about data ownership, privacy, and informed consent in the age of digitisation? Listen to Tyler Spooner, Co-Founder and CEO of The U Group & Co and Renae Desai, Murdoch University's Dean of School of Media and Communication. 

  • 6.50-7.20 PM: Interested in the effects of digital technology in marginalised & vulnerable groups and the diversity & inclusion issues in the tech industry?
