Dr Jordan Nguyen
Founder of Psykinetic
We’re living in an age of rapid technological change which is not only shaping and changing the way we work and live, but is also creating many new opportunities for solving seemingly impossible problems. In this presentation Dr Jordan Nguyen will introduce some of the big technologies bringing about these radical changes and how his insights gained from applying them to the disability sector might uncover new possibilities in aged care. His work ranges from social robotics to neuroscience and mind-controlled wheelchairs to eye-controlled communication and music to creative explorations in virtual reality.
Jordan is the founder of Psykinetic, a social business creating inclusive technology for empowerment in disability, and is a TV documentary producer and presenter, through which he travels the world to understand the global game-changing technologies and explore the impact they have on humanity. Some of the biggest technologies we are facing that will be raised in this presentation include Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. How might these affect aged care moving into the future?
Through the story-telling of Jordan’s own adventures, this thought-provoking talk will open minds to technological innovation and raise important conversations as to where our future is taking us. We have the imagination to improve our communities, now we must keep an eye on the tools and research being done around the world to help us get there together.
