⭐️2nd Speaker 🎤Announcement⭐️
🔸Design Robotics' Dr Jared Donovan (an Artist x Information Technologist x Designer plus!)🔸
.
.
Jared is going to share some exciting new & emerging opportunities, applications & trends impacting design & manufacturing with robotics.
.
.
Whereas the future of local #manufacturing was looking grim, and had stagnated or declined, with enabling technologies we are now seeing a bucking of this trend! .
.
We are welcoming a new era of locally designed & made – and spurring new innovations & businesses. Say hello to more '#MadeinQueensland" & "Made in Australia".
.
.
#Robotics is one technology that’s having a huge impact in this & other domains. We’re on a cusp when robotics is going to be increasingly present in our lives. .
.
There’s also going to be a shift from robotics being an #engineering problem/focus (e.g., looking at well-defined problems, like improving functionality) to a design problem/focus (to considering more systematic & open ended questions, like the impact on society and more). .
.
At Design Robotics, they’re making robots easy to program & control, see what they’re doing, & expanding the range of things they do – as well as imagining new uses. What’s more, they’re sharing these developments through an open innovation network. .
.
Local industry is benefiting – and you might too! Come learn about the new opportunities opening up to innovators, entrepreneurs & businesses.

🔸Health is a priority & opportunity: You can be involved in innovating to improve health & healthcare | $$ Funding available for piloting great 💡| Practice Pitching May 30 | Join Us Creating Solutions June 5-7🔸
.
.
There are great challenges & opportunities in health. .
.
We have an immense diversity & wealth of talent to come up with solutions. Researchers, students, health professionals, patients, innovators, entrepreneurs & more!
.
.
There are new/improving technologies we can use (e.g., in AI, genomics, advanced manufacturing, VR, AR, data analytics, robotics, & more) & new knowledge we can apply to solving problems & creating new value. .
.
Plus there are opportunities to receive funding to enable great ideas to be implemented. .
.
Some challenges:
.
.
Our population is growing, & ageing, & so is the need for health care, having regard to these factors & others (such as the rising toll of chronic disease & dementia on individuals, families & society). .
.
As patients we seek to be empowered. As carers, more support. As a society, we need solutions to improve health, healthcare & accessibility to all. .
.
Key funders are government (via our taxes) and insurers. But their funds are limited. How will they (ultimately we) sustainably serve our health needs? .
.
It is said “Healthcare providers will need to deliver exceptional, evidence-based and patient-focussed care in order to ensure financial sustainability”.
.
.
How can we do better at prevention, where the impact of our investment is highest, & promoting wellness? How can we provide greater value? How can we integrate care? Make it more effective & efficient?
.
.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION!
.
Join us as we partner with eHealth QLD & Hacking Health QLD & other orgs to solve challenges, improve health, & realise opportunities!
