Harnessing telecommunications, media and technology to make our own luck
As superfast broadband, 5G, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things usher in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, governments around the world are recognising the strategic importance of the creative industries.
The creative industries are fast growing, have one of the lowest automation susceptibilities and are increasingly playing an integral role in the digitisation of the economy.
Harnessing the creative industries and creative skills is critical to positioning Australia to benefit fully from new technologies and sources of growth as the trend to automation continues.
Australia is at a crossroads, and must adapt if its good fortune is to continue into the future.
Shadow Minister for Communications, Michelle Rowland MP, will discuss the role of policy, law reform and investment in the Information, Media and Telecommunications industries to promote the Creative Economy in Australia.
Join Michelle Rowland, IIC President Chris Chapman and Gilbert and Tobin Managing Partner Danny Gilbert AM, for a discussion of Australia’s potential in the fields of telecommunications, media and technology in the era of disruption.
Shadow Minister for Communications, Member for Greenway
