    The future of connection: How to better utilise VR, AR, and XR

    The future of connection: How to better utilise VR, AR, and XR

    For the first time ever we’ve seen an Olympics and World Cup contested in empty stadiums and bustling offices turned into ghost towns. However Covid, like all other troubled times, has also been a catalyst for accelerated innovation, from remote working technologies to immersive entertainment and educational experiences. This presents the question, has Covid, in some ways, left a positive legacy?

    In this episode of Tech Cetera, Sarah is joined by Peter Corbett from Deloitte, and Thomas Dexmier from HTC to discuss the changes they've seen across the tech world as a result of COVID-19.

    Peter and Thomas each bring their insights as leaders in technological transformation and virtual reality experiences, as they discuss the possibilities of VR, AR, and XR technology across schools, workplaces, nursing homes, and in our personal lives.

    How 5G stands to change the world

    How 5G stands to change the world

    Technology can’t save the world from all its ills. Humans need to play their part, too. But technology may just be the most powerful, scalable tool we have to tackle some of our biggest issues: issues like climate change, poverty, hunger, and access to clean water.

    What happens when you put two futurists — both passionate about sustainability — in the same podcast and ask them why acronyms like 5G, IoT and 4IR might just help save the world?

    Well, you’re about to find out. Our two guests on today’s show are leading futurist and author, Mark Pesce and fellow futurist, inventor and adventurer, Sally Dominguez.

    Cultural connectivity

    Cultural connectivity

    The oldest living culture, Australia's indigenous communities, have shaped and told the story of Australia for thousands of years. Today, much of this incredible culture is confined to rural areas, disconnected from mainstream Australia.

    In this episode of Tech Cetera we talk to two experts, Luke Briscoe and Mikaela Jade, who are working with indigenous communities. And we attempt to answer the question: How can technology help to protect and ensure the future of this ancient culture, and bridge the digital and cultural divide between indigenous and non-indigenous communities?

    Bridging the digital divide

    Bridging the digital divide

    As we adjust to a COVID-normal world that is more digitally reliant than ever, continuing to close the digital divide is critical. Some of the most digitally excluded people in Australia are low-income households, seniors, people who live in rural and remote Australia, people with a disability, and people with low levels of education and employment.

    What would it take to create a truly digitally inclusive Australia? In this episode, you’ll hear from two industry leaders committed to solving this problem: Gavin Williams, NBN’s Chief Development Officer, and Emilio Romeo, Ericsson ANZ’s Managing Director.

    Why diversity, equity and inclusion matters

    Why diversity, equity and inclusion matters

    Despite an abundance of research that shows companies are more profitable when they have more women in the C-suite, and that women’s higher intuitiveness and empathy can help develop better and more innovative products — the tech industry still remains a man’s world.

    This episode of Tech Cetra brings together two individuals with the shared goal of gender equality in the tech industry, but with very different approaches to solving the challenge. Today we're speaking with Sarah Moran, CEO of Girl Geek Academy, and Gemma Lloyd, CEO of WORK180.
