Join Kai Riemer, Michela Ledwidge and Sandra Peter as they chat with MIKE, a virtual, digital human that is able to interact and answer questions as if he were a real host. As we enter a new and confronting era of digital humans, the panel will raise awareness of the issues we soon face as this technology becomes common place in a world already plagued with Fake News.

Sydney Business Insights is pleased to present this Innovation Week event alongside Motus Lab, The Digital Disruption Research Group, and Mod Productions. The event will showcase cutting edge “digital humans”, and discuss issues surrounding the adoption, acceptance and ethics of future technology.
