Unleash your (Disruptive) Tech Geek!
28 March 2021
THE PRECINCT, TC BEIRNE BUILDING

Summary

This mind-boggling deep dive into ‘disruptive technology’ will keep you on your toes – and firing on all neurons – whether bopping to the beat of an algorave; walking the talk of AI-enabled robots (think, intelligent bots able to move and respond to your commands). Or tapping into the wonder and wisdom of extended reality (XR) immersions, tackling everything from climate change to cancer prevention.

Did you know? In the world of transformative technology, being ‘disruptive’ is a good thing… meaning ‘innovative or groundbreaking’!

SESSION 1: AI & Robotics
9am – 12pm and 2pm – 4pm
AI is becoming more and more present in our lives, whether it is Siri and Alexa that convert our words to text, or our Smartphones that can be unlocked just with our faces. During this session, people of all ages will be able to learn about and experiment with AI and Robotics. We will be looking at facial recognition, voice recognition and computer vision. You may also learn how police can identify ‘baddies’ from afar – or how your voice can power a robotic vehicle.

SESSION 2: Extended Reality (XR)
9am – 12pm and 2pm – 4pm
In this session, we will be looking at how Extended Reality (XR) can be used to understand the past or improve the future. Come and experiment with some XR experiences and travel back in time over 200 years ago or become ‘future visionaries’ tackling problems like climate change and cancer. Did you Know? XR encompasses Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR), and Augmented Reality (AR).

SESSION 3: Music & AI
Due to unforeseen circumstances this session has been cancelled.
Algo-rave: you guessed right… it stands for “algorithm” and “rave”. Come and enjoy a performance of AI-generated music. You might even help code a data-driven drum section or learn how AI extends beyond curating bespoke playlists on Spotify to actually composing music.
