The Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 is disrupting every industry across the globe. Characterised by the convergence of cyber and physical systems, it has accelerated innovation transforming entire systems of production and creating new rules of engagement. The technologies that underpin this revolution are providing a new means for competitive advantage and countries are now locked in a digital innovation race. Leaders from Australia’s six Industry Growth Centres take to the stage to explore the impact and opportunity of Industry 4.0 for Australia’s key global competitive strength areas.
Dealing with rapid urbanisation: how smart cities will transform urban life
1.00pm – 1.45pm
Moderator: Katie Ford, CSIRO’s Data61
According to the United Nations, 3.5 billion people – half of the world’s population – live in cities today. By 2050, the urban population is expected to reach 6.5 billion, including 43 megacities capturing 10 million residents each. This massive shift is forcing new approaches to urban management and planning. From ‘Digital Twins’ of entire cities to traffic congestion modelling and smart sensors, we explore the future of data-driven infrastructure and its impact on the people that live there.
