Digitalize 2019 is coming to Brisbane

With the theme ‘Unlock the Potential’, Siemens’ annual conference, Digitalize 2019, will bring together global and local industry leaders to discuss how Australian businesses across various sectors can unlock their potential with the use of digitalisation.

To be held on 23 July in Brisbane, the full-day conference will feature four sub-themes of Industry 4.0, Intelligent Infrastructure, Australia’s Energy Transition and Workforce of the Future.

Two visiting speakers from Siemens will be Martin Powell, Head of Urban Development and Gerhard Kress, Vice President of Data Services. Powell, who is Siemens’ Cities lead for the Americas and former Deputy Mayor of London for Energy & Environment, will discuss how cities can prepare for the future by embracing IoT. Kress, who has been responsible for building Siemens’ global data science team over the last few years, will explain how he uses advanced data analytics to create an entirely new business model for the rail industry.

Australian speakers are as follows:

  • Michelle Price, CEO of cybersecurity growth centre AustCyber, will share her thoughts on cybersecurity as an opportunity rather than a threat.
  • Will Shrapnel, CEO of aerospace company Helimods, will highlight how it is using cutting-edge technology to help helicopter paramedics across the world.
  • Professor Bronwyn Fox from Swinburne University of Technology, along with leading Australian universities, will explain how a new network of Industry 4.0 test laboratories will support Australian businesses, especially SMEs, in the transition to the Industry 4.0.
