Society 4.0 Forum

DETAILS

What is the digital economy? What does it mean for your organisation? What is your role in driving change for good?

Contemporary organisations and citizens are embroiled in the early stages of the Fourth Industrial Revolution – a disruption characterised by mass data digitisation linked with machine learning, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics and work automation.

Presented by the Social Innovation Research Institute and Swinburne Research, in association with Family Life Ltd (Australia), Analysis & Policy Observatory and Pro Bono, this forum will scrutinise some of the key issues associated with Society 4.0, including:

  • Impacts on work, workforce and workplaces
  • Digitisation of services, highlighting government, human/community services and potential for new types of business and service approaches
  • Technology in future service design, to improve user experience and worker wellbeing

The Forum will draw on worked examples rather than conjecture and give attendees the opportunity to engage with national and international leaders who are currently implementing and using digitising technologies.

We will provide positive cases as well as timely lessons about how technologies can power-up and support change, providing grassroots evidence of transformation and indicators of promising new practice. Attendees will leave feeling inspired and knowledgeable about what to do.

A two day event, the Society 4.0 forum will cover:

  • Day 1: Leaders and Worked Examples – Issues and Solutions
  • Day 2: Research Symposium

Who should attend?

You should attend this if you are:

  • A CEO, senior manager or innovation leader in government, community, social, humanitarian or business sector
  • A leading, thought-leading, innovative practitioner
  • An applied researcher keen to hear about practical leadership and examples

Forum Aims

To highlight what is really happening in Society 4.0 and what organisations, leaders and managers need to do, now. This includes:

  • The timescale
  • Implications for Australian work, jobs, needed skills profiles
  • Implications for workplaces, employers, employees and work wellbeing
  • Implications for Australian public services, community sector and business
  • Consider effects on social equality and social inclusion
  • Drive effort towards the upside of risk and social good – instilling public and social value into technologies, systems and governance
  • Prompt action on what to do and how to be ready
