Expediting e-government: How our data is being managed with Professor Lemuria Carter

At our first Learn@Lunch presentation for 2020, Professor Lemuria Carter explores the issue of data management within the public sector. As Head of the School of Information Systems and Technology Management, Professor Carter unpacks her research into select US government agencies to assess benchmarking techniques around data management maturity. From these findings, she explores why data maturity is critical for multi-faceted government agencies, and how this can be best assessed going forward.

Expediting e-government: How our data is being managed with Professor Lemuria Carter

Learn@Lunch with Professor Mari Velonaki | Designing social robots

When people think of robots, chances are they don’t picture a cute fluffy seal pup, but this is because they’ve never heard of Paro. Sweet little Paro is a therapeutic robot designed to help dementia patients to feel calm and communicate better. Then there is Kaspar, a doll-like robot boy, who is used to help autistic children to feel more comfortable with social interaction. This is Social Robotics in action. While some are anxious about the growing prevalence of AI, experts at the UNSW Creative Robotics Lab (CRL) are pioneering a future where unique robots like Paro and Kaspar are enhancing humanity, rather than replacing it. At our final Learn@Lunch talk for 2019, CRL Founder and Director Professor Mari Velonaki shared insights into the fascinating new field of Social Robotics. As the leader of a multidisciplinary team of artists, computer scientists, engineers and psychologists, Mari explored the concept of ‘experiential design’ as a key driver to an engaging human-robot interaction, and unpacked the many ways that humans can interact with robots to benefit society.

Learn@Lunch with Professor S. Travis Waller | Transport Data Paradox

Transport Data Paradox: Should commuters exit the driver's seat? Advances in transport technologies mean accessing real-time traffic data around congestion, cost and safety is easier than ever before. With this wealth of information at your fingertips, you know to avoid that blocked road, to get the cheaper and faster ferry, or to jump in a cab instead of facing track delays. The only problem is - now millions of others know that too. Will this really save us? Future mobility has captured the imaginations of academics and commuters alike for exciting concepts like autonomous vehicles and transport innovation. However, not enough attention is given to the equally disruptive yet growing availability of information, and its effects on commuter behaviour. In this Learn@Lunch session, Advisian Chair of Transport Innovation, Professor S. Travis Waller explored how real-time travel data has become a paradox of modern mobility, potentially exacerbating issues rather than allowing us to bypass them.

Learn@Lunch with Professor Carole Comerton-Forde | Modern securities markets: myths and realities

Whether investing in a professional capacity, or looking to grow your nest egg, navigating modern securities markets can seem daunting – and no wonder. With a myriad of constantly evolving concepts and processes, and sometimes sensationalist reporting from the media, there are a number of market-related fictions masquerading as fact. With a core focus on institutional investment (with retail/individual investment insights peppered in) Professor Comerton-Forde unpacks how markets in both Australia and overseas have evolved over the last decade, and how this has impacted investors. This includes an exploration into the purpose and integrity of the ominously-named ‘dark pools’, the true impact of short selling and high-frequency trading, and how competition from relative newcomer Chi-X has altered the Australian equity market landscape.

Learn@Lunch with Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla | Our secret weapon in the War on Waste

As images of rising landfills and environmental devastation dominate our news feeds, society is officially awake to the impact that waste is having on our planet. While keep cups and reusable grocery bags have become common totems of progress, Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla is leading her own quiet revolution against waste, with incredible results. Under her leadership, the dynamic team at the UNSW Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) aims to eliminate the concept of ‘waste’ through bold new Microfactory TM recycling capabilities. At this Learn@Lunch session, ‘waste trailblazer’ and materials scientist, Professor Sahajwalla, explained how an unwanted shirt, coffee grounds and other common waste items can be transformed into sustainable building materials. Meanwhile, her process for developing ‘green steel’ has diverted millions of old tyres from landfills. Through exploring this ground-breaking work, Professor Sahajwalla unpacked how such initiatives are crucial to help create a circular economy where materials are kept in use for as long as possible, to create a more sustainable society.
