2017 Boyer Lectures

Fast, smart and connected: what is it to be human, and Australian, in a digital world
Digital communications Social media Information technology Australia

Each year since 1959, the ABC has sparked national discussion about critical ideas with the Boyer Lectures.

In October, ANU Distinguished Professor and Intel Senior Fellow Professor Genevieve Bell continues this proud tradition and you're invited. Thirty years ago, Professor Bell left Australia to study anthropology in America. That journey took her to the heart of Silicon Valley, where she led Intel’s first user experience research and development lab and most recently served as their chief futurist. Her job was to help invent the future and ensure that it was shaped by lived experience.

Professor Bell has been at the epicentre of the biggest set of digital transformations in our lifetime, and now she’s returned home to Australia, because there are some urgent conversations we need to have about the role of technology in building our future.
