Part 1: Capability – Submarines, industrial development and frontier technologies

James Riley
Editorial Director

The Capability – Submarines, industrial development and frontier technologies webinar was a discussion at the highest levels of business about how companies can mobilise to build strategically important and commercially valuable intellectual property.

Where is Australia placing its big bets to leverage existing research leadership? Where does Australia already have comparative advantage, and where will it partner to augment home-grown capability ? Quantum, artificial intelligence, 5G, advanced manufacturing, robotics and automation, and critical mineral processing are all part of this mix.

Expert guests included:

  • The Hon. Steven Marshall MP, Premier of South Australia
  • Professor Michelle Simmons AO, CEO & founder at Silicon Quantum Computing, director at ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology
  • Rear Admiral Lee Goddard, RAN, head of partnerships & operations at Minderoo Foundation.
