Embracing the architectural cyborg: human and machine intelligence united
This is a Seminar
Big data is helping you feel comfortable - at work, at home, in public places. Combining data from the built environment, human behaviour , demographics and social interactions, new data models are literally shaping the places we work, relax and congregate.
Is architecture about to become the domain of the artificial intelligence bot?
Our guest speaker, Dr Christian Derix from leading architectural firm Woods Bagot, represents a new breed of architect – part creative, part analytics. Join us for this enlightening breakfast session to discover how the Woods Bagot SuperSpace process combines computational analysis, data modelling and design to both predict human behaviour and map social and physical trends within organisations and cities. The work buildings that start from data are as eye-catching as they are comfortable – for example South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute building in SA and National Australia Bank head office in Melbourne.
Additionally, author and analytics evangelist, Evan Stubbs, Associate Director of Boston Consulting Group, will provide an analytics centred view of the future - what awaits an analytics professional?
And a "Future of Work" addition - we'll also review the results from the 2016 Skills and Salary Survey.
A networking session and light refreshments will accompany the presentations.
Note: This is a breakfast event
This event is part of the IAPA series of state-based events on 'The Future of Work'.
