Topics for Lani Refiti

  • Being human in a technology obsessed world
    Technology is ubiquitous and it’s adoption will only accelerate as emerging technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) begin to mature. Set against this rapid shift, humans have evolved over millions of years and changing what it means to be human in a technology obsessed world.
  • A person-centric approach to tech
    Tech consumption is ubiquitous and increasing but it seems to be impeding the very thing it was meant to do ie, facilitate human contact and connection. What are the causes and answers as we head further into the 21st century?
  • Contact and connection through technology
    “The human heart yearns for contact – above all it yearns for connection” – Lynne Jacobs. In a world where AI will become both ubiquitous and more intelligent than humans in a decade, how will this play out?
  • Innovation and creativity
    Innovation and creativity are processes that are accelerated through people in contact with people, not technology. How can we create a culture of innovation and creativity in a world where empiricism and data is king?
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
    The Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change how we work, live and play in a very short timeframe. But the complexity, diversity and scale make this fraught with dangers - how do we make sure this future is safe and secure?
  • Smart cities
    Smart cities are our future as urbanisation and demographic change accelerates, but how do we secure this future as cyberattacks on critical infrastructure are on the rise and citizen's privacy at risk?
  • Cybersecurity – moving from security to resiliency
    With spending on cybersecurity at record levels, so are the incidents of cyber-attacks. More than ever we need to move to resilience vs security approach.
