Speakers Announcement for GeoRabble Sydney

Bring your brain in curious mode, and gather together with your fellow GeoRablers  from all parts of the community this Thursday for some good times, brain food and friends.

This week we have a couple of new presenters and some familiar ones as well, followed by a panel session where you control the action just like a day at Jamberoo.

Joshua Soo – Stepping into the Future with Design Thinking

Design Thinking is a creative and human-centered problem solving methodology that is fast becoming the way start-ups and established organisations innovate and tackle challenges.

Maryse Fantin – Global Trends and what it means for future tech

Technology reflects ourselves: our needs and wants; our mindset and culture. Based on the NIC Global Trends, this is a summary with my view on what’s to come.

Luke Metcalfe – Does a Data Scientist Belong on your Geo Team? 

What Data Scientists do, pitfalls of working with them and how they can help in the geospatial world.

Francisco Urbina – VR, AR and MR and the Location Community

VR, AR and MR, what is the difference? Why should we care? We take a look at the trends and hopefully inspire you to grasp the potential.

Panel Session moderated by Elise Mckenna.

Our MC for the evening will see the welcome return of Tim Leigh

Sydney GeoRabble Call for Speakers

The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.

William Gibson

On Thursday August the 10th at the Occidental hotel we are going to distribute the future to our community

Think blockchain is going to underpin spatial transactions or that AR is the new UI for mapping? Sick of hearing that an emerging trend will revolutionise the way we work when it already has?

Then we want to hear your vision for our community.

You don’t have to be an expert, you just need to be excited about the impacts of new patterns and trends in tech, on all things geo and inspire others to learn and embrace new ideas.

Send through you speaker ideas with a short description to sydney@georabble.org

Remember the rules for presentations and save the date as we share ideas to build and grow the GeoRabble community.
