Panel: Tech for good: Going beyond Sustainable ICT

Friday 14.10

Main Stage

10:30-11:00

The past few years have seen a concerted effort from cloud and IT services to clean up their heavy emitting industries. However, less attention has been given to a growing movement that sees IT/sensor technologies and AI applied solve the greatest challenges facing humanity. The ‘Tech for Good’ movement brings together scientists, creators and entrepreneurs in seeing how data-driven insights can help us target change where it’s needed and spend our time and efforts in the most efficient ways possible.

Energy for Tomorrow

Friday 14.10

Main Stage

12:00-12:30

We are in the midst of a severe energy crisis with flow-on effects that touch all aspects of business and life. With the war dragging on and the current volatility tipped to increase into the winter, it’s time we face a new and uncertain energy future. Within the current climate, what things can we do to ease pressure on the market; how quickly can the growing trend of renewables and electromobility influence demand; and is the current crisis going to speed up or slow down decarbonisation? Hear from leaders in Energy, Mobility and Transport as we map out a path for sustainable energy futures.
