(From Anthony Wong, ACS President) : I am very excited to invite you to join us for the Ministerial forum with The Hon Victor Dominello NSW Minister for Innovation & Better Regulation.

This session will tackle innovation and disruption; driverless cars, AI, AR, VR, IoT – the commercial applications have come a long way in a short period of time, and we are seeing an explosion in technology innovation.

Why is it then that developed economies have yet to see any real GDP impact?

And with the rapid moves towards automation, and algorithm lead advice, what are the impacts for the modern day professional?
