Katherine Teh-White, Founder and Managing Director of global management consultancy Futureye will present as a keynote speaker at the 28th Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) International Conference.
Ms. Teh-White helps companies prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (the Fourth), according to the ARRB. “The Fourth builds on the digital revolution bringing together digital, physical and biological systems. It will mean our global transport networks will carry billions of people connected by and interacting with artificial intelligence, robotics, autonomous vehicles, 3D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage and quantum computing.”
In an era of quickly shifting community expectations and instantaneous communication, Ms. Teh-White will show how all six streams from the ARRB conference relate back to the Fourth.
“We are in the early stages of the Fourth and already surrounded by AI in the form of driverless vehicles, drones as the highways of the future, virtual assistants and more,” said Ms. Teh-White.
Ms. Teh-White has won a number of awards including the Golden Target award from the Public Relations Institute of Australia (1994), Telstra Business Woman of the Year private sector awardee (2001) and Victorian Women’s Honour Roll (2003). She has been listed in Who’s Who of Australian Women from 2007. She is currently a mentor for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Young Innovators Fellowship Programme.
She is also a board member of the Castan Centre for Human Rights at Monash University and sits on the advisory committee of the Research Unit in Public Cultures at the University of Melbourne.
