Solo event,

My teacher said I’d need maths one day

3pm - 3.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Duncan will take you into the secret world of mathematics and how it helps to solve some of the most complex crimes. His talk spans millennia – from the time of ancient Sparta to the artificial super-intelligence of the future, examining how our use of data continues to evolve.

Solo event,

The best of both worlds

4pm - 4.50pm | Saturday 14 July

How do we leverage the amazing benefits of both man and machine? Positive human connection creates physical synchronisation that affects everything from health to trust and problem-solving. Increasing technologisation impacts this, delivering transformative benefits and capacities coupled with drawbacks around interaction, thought and emotion.

Solo event,

The disillusionment with democracy

4pm - 4.50pm | Saturday 14 July

In Eastern Europe and many parts of Asia, governments are neither freely elected nor accountable, while the freedoms indispensible to democracy are withheld. In the United States, Britain and Australia, politicians and public institutions are held in disrepute. What light can history throw on this disillusionment with democracy?

Panel,

Jesus wasn’t white

4pm - 4.50pm | Saturday 14 July

. . . a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle; he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white. The problem is, Jesus was not white.’ Rev'd Whitaker, The Conversation

Solo event,

Women, climate and the green economy

4pm - 4.50pm | Saturday 14 July

After 5 years of tracking buying habits, attitudes, trends and media, ekko.world is looking to mother-ship leadership to subvert the inertia in the general population's seeming lack of responsibility for their planetary diet. What is the conspiracy, why does it involve women's logic and how do we build a self saucing system to inspire better behaviour?  And a global movement to counter consumption marketing?

Oration,

Barbara Hardy Oration: Our future energy supply

4pm - 4.50pm | Saturday 14 July

With escalating energy costs, uncertainty in energy supply reliability and security, and the need to halt greenhouse gas emissions, the energy supply industry is at a crossroad. This panel presentation will consider the questions: Can we move to a zero carbon future? What does tomorrow’s smart grid look like? And what innovations are being developed at UniSA to help reach this goal?
