The School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics is the sponsor of The Warren Centre's Innovation Lecture on Thursday 9 November 2017. The Warren Centre has been privileged to provide a platform for these leaders, to share their experiences and insights, and to highlight Australia’s innovation and technology capability for over 20 years. Australia, now more than ever, needs innovation to drive its industries to the forefront of change. Andrew Harris (Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Sydney and Australian Director, Engineering Excellence Group, Laing O’Rourke) innovates to bring radical new technologies to the construction industry. From a test lab in Sydney’s Chippendale district, engineers disassemble off-the-shelf video game components to rig up new onsite safety tools, while new technologies like virtual reality and 3D printing are being adapted to deliver faster projects and unique designs which could not have been done with the tools of the past. "Resembling something like the futuristic lab of James Bond's eccentric Q character, the EnEx.G lab is a playroom of robotic arms, 3D printers, cyborg-like exoskeletons and digital screens." - Michael Bleby, Australian Financial Review From robotics to 'smart' hard hats, a renaissance of innovation in construction is being launched from Australia to all across the world, geared to disrupt a $15 trillion global industry. Come to this year's Innovation Lecture to hear Andrew present his views on the transformational impact of new technologies in shaping tomorrow. Ticket price includes lecture, drinks and canapés.
