Mark Pesce - Supertools

We live & thrive in an era of ‘supertools’ - tools that vastly amplify our innate human cognitive capacities. Three of these are so much a part of the fabric of our work that we tend to overlook them: the spreadsheet, the Web, and the smartphone, yet these three alone have touched and transformed nearly every aspect professional practice.

In an age of artificial intelligence, each of these supertools is being transformed again, delivering incredible capacities - in simulation, in learning, and in communication, so that everything that has come before, amazing as it is, will all seem merely a prelude. Welcome to the Dawn of the Supertools.

Come and hear Mark Pesce share his ideas on the future of Artificial Intelligence at scale. Mark Pesce invented the technology for 3D on the Web, has written six books, was for seven years a panelist on the ABC's "The New Inventors", founded postgraduate programs at USC and AFTRS, holds honorary appointments at USyd and UTS, is an award-winning columnist for The Register, and is a professional futurist and public speaker. He hosts both the award-winning 'The Next Billion Seconds', and 'This Week in Startups Australia’ podcasts.
