SME business owners, leader

CeBIT Australia 2018 is expected to attract a large audience of SME business owners, as experts converge on Sydney to discuss what the future of business technology will look like in Australia.

A highlight of the technology exhibition and conference, dubbed the FutureTech Stage, will feature a host of the world’s most renowned industry experts on matters relating to the internet of things (IoT), fintech, AI and machine learning.

Running alongside the conferences on the big data and analytics, cloud, e-government and cyber security will be three curated FutureTech agendas.


Each will share insights into the cutting-edge technologies shaping the future of business and address both the opportunities and challenges Australian businesses currently face when adapting to technological advancements.

Presenters include professor Toby Walsh, author of Machines That Think: The Future of Artificial Intelligence and professor of artificial intelligence at UNSW; Tommy Mermelshtayn, chief strategy officer at zipMoney; senior principal researcher at Data61 - CSIRO, Dr Fang Chen; and lead data scientist Coca-Cola Amatil, Dr Siamak Tafavogh.

NSW minister for trade and industry Niall Blair said that CeBIT Australia continues to be at the forefront of innovation and technologies.

“The FutureTech Stage is another way CeBIT Australia is addressing the topics Australian businesses want to tackle,” the minister said.



Managing director at organiser Hannover Fairs Australia Harvey Stockbridge said that the FutureTech Stage brings new perspectives to the program, answering the most pressing questions about the changing landscapes, technologies and the future of jobs in Australia.

“CeBIT Australia is maximising the discussions and perspectives of industry experts throughout the program,” the MD said.

“The FutureTech Stage will play an integral role in examining what the future of our industry will look like, covering all aspects of technology that will have the most impact on organisations.”

He said that the sessions are “short snapshots”, yet they deliver the most important information “succinctly and in an understandable way”.

“We have strived to get the best speakers from a multitude of companies, institutions and councils using advanced technology to demonstrate the way of the future,” Mr Stockbridge said.
