I was recently invited to give a talk about how ICT technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) are going to disrupt manufacturing and how Australia is doing here. The talk is now available on YouTube. Thanks also to my colleague Scott Martin for the very thorough introduction....:-).
Manufacturing in Australia can thrive if it becomes more ICT enabled and takes advantage of the opportunities provided by modern technologies such as the Internet of Things and others. Listen to my colleague Peter Kambouris discussing our recent discussion Paper "Equipping Australian Manufacturing for the Information Age: iManufacturing - Is Australia Ready?" on the ABC.
ON the surface, the prospects for the “Made in Australia” tag look bleak. We are counting down to our last Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores, and our next submarine fleet could be made in Japan rather than Adelaide.
