The Future of Smartphones – Kruti Patel

Autonomous cars, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and many others are now constantly in media. But almost overlooked, there’s something else that is growing at a crazy speed; Smartphones! In the last 10 years, mobile technology has grown exponentially. In 2007 when the iPhone was launched followed by Android in 2008 we had no idea it was going to kill Nokia and Blackberry phones.

Since the beginning of smartphones, there has been incredible technological updates from better and smarter sensors to connectivity and now the new upcoming tech WiMAX. I will be discussing the upcoming technologies within the mobile world including Google Tango an augmented reality platform, location services, Miniscule, WiMAX and many more.

After receiving her degree in Computer Engineering from Gujurat University in India, Kruti began primarily developing software across the Android platform, dabbling in J2EE, JavaScript and Hibernate along the way. Kruti has been responsible for deploying a whole range of Android applications, specifically for mobile, throughout her time at Isobar.

HTC Vive demos from Academy Xi’s Virtual Reality Design Program

The Virtual Reality Design Program runs over 10 weeks and will provide attendees with the knowledge and practical skills to be able to make or break into this fascinating industry that is on the verge of burgeoning growth.

Led by highly experienced and well regarded experts in VR & AR and guided by a number of industry mentors students will solve a problem in a commercial application and also have a chance to create their very own VR experience.

Come and see the results from the latest graduates!

Psychedelichiatry: Brave New World or Marriage of Heaven and Hell – Dr Prashanth Puspanathan

One of the most promising and exciting therapeutic options in Psychiatry to have emerged in recent years is a hark back to an ancient medicine; The healing power of Psychedelics. Mystical, often poorly understood, and ladled with both the pedigree and stigma of history in equal measure, research into psychedelics and their therapeutic benefit has expanded in recent years and is claiming a place in environments as disparate as therapy rooms and Sillicon Valley.

This discussion will introduce Psychedelics and their historical significance, explore some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding them and present the international research that is seeing Psychedelics transition from hippy fairydust to hospital grade medicine…and even techworld tonic.

Dr Prash works in the psychiatry department of a major metropolitan hospital. His primary intellectual and research interest is in the therapeutic use of psychedelics and their potential role in psychotherapy. He sits on the clinical advisory board of The Australian Psychedelic Society and runs the research discussion group Psychonauts Onymous, bringing together individuals professionally or intellectually connected to the psychedelic paradigm. When not pontificating on the topic at talks and conferences, he is actively seeking your money, or that of your philanthropist grandparents, to help get psychedelic research off the ground in Australia.

Presentations

Insertables – Kayla Heffernan

Over the last century the body has emerged as a platform for devices, including internal medical devices and wearable fitness monitors. Within the last decade individuals have begun voluntarily inserting non-medical devices into their bodies. What are people putting in their bodies and why? Are insertables the next thing?

Kayla J Heffernan is a UX designer at SEEK who is also undertaking her PhD in interaction design at The University of Melbourne exploring a new category of device: insertables – devices that go in, through and underneath the skin.

Web VR – Making VR magic with JavaScript – Patrick Cantanzariti

WebVR is gaining some serious momentum as a viable way of building and delivering VR experiences. It might seem like an odd pairing, bringing the web, browsers and JavaScript together with VR, but it really does make more sense than people initially think. PatCat will look at the advantages of WebVR and how anyone can easily get started making WebVR applications today. You can do some really cool stuff with it already! He’ll be bringing a live demo or two!

PatCat is the founder of Dev Diner, a site that helps developers navigate the world of emerging tech such as virtual and augmented reality, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and wearables. He is a SitePoint contributing editor for emerging tech, an instructor at SitePoint Premium and O’Reilly, a VR/AR mentor at the University of New South Wales, a Meta Pioneer and freelance developer who loves every opportunity to tinker with something new in a tech demo.

Live music with Meri Amber

Meri Amber is a geek pop singer-songwriter. Think lasers, kazoos and ninja style world domination. Her sound can be likened to a mesh of bright pop with a smidgen of 90s punk rock stirred in, topped off with a generous sprinkling of pop culture samples and computer game synths.

She’s performed at events as varied as comic conventions, to shows alongside puppets, magicians and medieval swordsmen, doing pre-show foyer entertainment for acts like the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular and Flight of The Conchords.

“Like nothing we at OpJam have heard before! Meri Amber is like a comic book Taylor Swift, writing sassy tunes that stay in your head” – OPJAM

Here’s one of our favourite songs about VR from Meri: Headboxes.

Mixed Reality and Art: The Quest for Balance – Jennie Rosenbaum

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are this year’s hottest buzzwords when it comes to art. Are they just gimmicks or is there something deeper behind the work? When artists can create whole immersive worlds or blur the line between the digital and the real what we have to say is still of the most importance. J Rosenbaum is a digital artist working in 3D Modeling and Augmented Reality with Machine Learning based interactions. Join us as they unpack what new technology brings to art and what artists bring to new technologies.

J. Rosenbaum is a contemporary figurative artist working in 3D modeling and exploring the boundaries of technology and art. Their most recent work has been in exploring the nature of Non Binary Transness and their own genders and sexuality. Well known for being a painter of nudes, Rosenbaum has recently completed a masters degree and changed focus to more technologically based digital art using physics based rendering, Deep Neural Networks and Unity to develop an Augmented Reality mobile application. Following a car accident that impaired Rosenbaum’s mobility they have turned their mind inwards exploring the nature of humanity, religion and gender through art. The human body has always been a source of fascination in Rosenbaum’s art with a focus on mythical and archaeological stories driving their progress. This fascination has continued with their newest Computer Generated works with a basis in classical art and history. J is an American working from their home in Victoria, Australia with their partner and child and two cats.

Designing Smarter Cities – Jacob Lindsay

Our cities are being layered with many types of hardware and software sensors, internet of things and internet of everything. This new domain of digitally integrated urban space has become to be known as a smart city. This new type of city is fundamentally a different space to how we used to experience it decades ago – one where digital systems have a very real impact on how we experience and navigate our cities. Jacob will be discussing his work with Creative Suburbs, Code for Australia and with Aurecon looking at the combination of the digital and physical, and how we as designers can create positive technological change in our cities.

Jacob is a multi-disciplinary designer based in Melbourne. He is working on how emerging technologies impact our cities and built infrastructure globally as a Service Designer within the Digital Futures team at Aurecon. He is also Non-executive Director and Co-founder of Code for Australia, and co-founder of Creative Suburbs. He enjoys living among a mountain of bike parts, a fridge stocked with cheese and his sidekick-cat Maximus

The Presentations

Let’s Collaborate : You’ve dropped the C word, now what?!? 

– Lina Patel, Code for Australia

The whys and hows of effective collaboration for small groups and teams. What makes things hum, what makes it a drag. What does all of this have to do with making toast?

Lina Patel is a collaboration designer and facilitator and works with people and organisations who value positive social outcomes and who want to get better at what their doing. She spends most of her time with people who know where they are headed, and who aren’t sure how to get there, and are open to iteration. This often means she’s the second-in-charge to the second-in-charge.

Currently she works at Code For Australia working on a series of projects to improve government and citizen relationships in Australia. She supports talented Fellows during their 6 month residency in a government department, where they work in teams of 3, operate as a startup and work on an assigned problem or uncover deeper service design problems to solve through tech. As the Chief of Getting Things Done at Code for Australia she makes sure nobody is starting any fires or getting lost in the woods – both on the government partner and their team side.

A new Melbourne meetup for people that work on The Web

Do you work on the Web? Do you create content or code, work on user experience or process?

The likelihood is you have a passion for a single discipline – but collaboration with other people working in different areas of The Web is how we can bring about larger change to the way people use The Internet, and how we work together.

The Web Meetup will bring together people from differing backgrounds to talk about all things Web. UX and UI, Front end Development, User Research, even the way we work. The different perspectives in the spotlight each month will help us all grow and learn more about what we do and how we can work with one another to produce a better product.

From the founders of BuzzConf, Angular JS Melbourne and Be Responsive, this meetup will be run by a community for a community – and we’re looking for volunteers from all backgrounds to join us! With half a dozen organisers, we will each be responsible for finding one speaker every few months – a small commitment that will help us reach more people with a wider range of topics. If you are interested in joining us get in touch!

Join us on Meetup.com today!
