Program

Sunday 15 July

Panel,

Autonomous vehicles

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

Once existing only in science fiction, driverless cars are now a reality and here to stay. What does this mean for our future mobility? And how are we going to shape our lives, industries, cities and neighbourhoods to accommodate them?

Solo event,

The choice with voice…

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

One in five Google searches is now done via voice. But what do we humans get back from the machine? If you type, you receive pages; if you speak, you get, er, singularity. What does this mean for journalism, for media plurality, diversity and, ultimately, for democracy? Let’s talk.

Panel,

Parent guilt

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

We all suffer from it, don’t we? But does it make us better parents or produce questionable behaviours? Join a scientist, musician and psychiatrist for this no-holds-barred discussion peppered with amusing anecdotes and some proper science!

Solo event,

Clarendon Creative dinner party: what sustains you?

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

Marnie led a ground-breaking experience for creatives, thinkers and the general public in the lead-up to the Adelaide Festival of Ideas 2018. Framed as a dinner party, it was a social art project with interventions. Were the participants sustained?

Oration,

Bettison and James Oration: 25zero

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

Climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity. Melting glacial ice is one of the clearest indicators of this complex issue. Nowhere is it more apparent than where you’d least expect to find ice – at the equator, where there are only 25 mountains with glaciers. Within a quarter of a century, these glaciers will be gone. Put simply: 25 mountains. Zero latitude. 25 years. Zero ice. 25 zero. Tim Jarvis was the recipient of the Bettison and James award in 2017.
