National Wine Centre
Explore an afternoon as we delve into the convergence of technology and culture. Exponential technologies are re-shaping our collective future in ways we can almost barely comprehend. From quantum to AI to the metaverse and a promise of society and economies decentralized. As we re-enter a state of FutureShock, we’ll learn about the impact these technologies will have on us as individuals, as a society, and the opportunities of a digitally entangled future. If we’re not creating the future - we must to attempt to understand it.
DIVE INTO THE SCHEDULE
On arrival, you'll be greeted by our friendly SQUAD who will chaperone you to our picnic-style lunch outside the National Wine Centre. Here, you’ll connect with your fellow Impact Summit-ers alongside a host of other interesting humans who are attending another _SOUTHSTART adventure at the venue.
The Solarian Myth states that Love & Intellect are soon to be discovered to be actual measurable physical forces that help hold the universe together. These are forces that exist in the vibrational ether predicted by Super String theory and they form Philotics that connect across great distances. Everything from discussing the strategies for creating as much love and intellect as possible to the interesting solutions or prioritization quandaries it can help solve in the realm of Environmentalism and application of technology as it applies to the Rush to Electrification at the cost of Bio-Diversity.
What could, or should, life and our planet look like in 2050? In this conversation, we'll explore themes, challenges, technologies, and solutions by those on the frontlines creating a world filled with hope, aspiration, and possibility.
Indulge your senses in another delicious soiree in the sunshine over a shared afternoon break.
Join Professor Michael Biercuk to hear the most extreme ideas in how quantum computing can save the planet, and why it hasn't happened yet...
Join Kieran Warwick, CEO at Illuvium in a fireside conversation hosted by Mike Scott, CEO at Nona Digital as they delve deep into the depths of the metaverse. As the co-founder of the first AAA gaming title on the Ethereum blockchain, Kieran is a serial entrepreneur who was exposed to Bitcoin and Ethereum early on, alongside his brother. As another early adopter of blockchain technology, Mike Scott will jump into the trenches with Kieran to unlock the opportunities of web 3.0.

Whether we know it or not, technology has significantly changed our lives - for decades. Join us as we delve deep into the delta of where we are and where we could be. We’ll explore the intersection of sovereignty and science - technology and trust - in an understanding of the resources of tomorrow that will have real, and lasting meaning.
All ticket holders of our main friday events are invited to join us in the sunshine for closing drinks powered by our good friends at Twilio! We know that by the time happy hour comes around, you’ll have sparked new ideas & will likely be in need of a debrief with your newfound change comrades. So what better way to conclude the afternoon than with celebration of what's been. Don’t forget, Fringe & WOMAD are just around the corner if you want to continue the celebrations into the night & we’ll be in your inboxes shortly after to continue to support your journey in the years to come!
