Twitter highlights from Innovation Lecture 2017 Sydney: Shaping Tomorrow with Andrew Harris

The Warren Centre held its Innovation Lecture 2017: Shaping Tomorrow – Robots, 3D Printing and Virtual Reality event at The Westin Sydney on Wednesday 18 October 2017.

The event was opened by Uncle Allen Madden who presented a brilliant Welcome to Country, followed by Minister Matthew Kean who delved into the importance of Australian innovation in keeping the nation prosperous and continuously moving forward. Professor Andrew Harris presented a fresh approach to an established industry, raising questions of efficiency and effectiveness of the current models of construction. Through astounding videos and animations, Andrew revealed how robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality, and biomimicry could be applied to produce innovative outcomes and revolutionise the construction industry. The enraptured audience then got the opportunity to ask questions on everything from the relevance of intellectual property to the speed of innovation and the changing workforce.
