What we're about

The Sunshine Coast Emerging Technology Meetup is a community of engaged community members and business professionals who are looking to both leverage emerging technology to drive innovation in the region and to become educated.

Our purpose is to prepare the Sunshine Coast community for change through awareness and education.

The Sunshine coast has been recognised as one of the top 7 intelligent communities of 2019 sharing the global spotlight with communities from Canada, Taiwan and the United states. The Sunshine Coast was the only Australian city named at this level and is now in the running for the esteemed Intelligent Community of the year award which will be announced in June 2019.

We believe that the major contributing factors leading to our position as an intelligent community, is the ever increasing push from groups, events and projects like ours working together to lead innovation within the region.

This group is primarily educational and all presentations will be delivered without alot of tech talk so if you are new to tech, this group is for you too.

Educational presentations on key Emerging Technology topics delivered by experts in their fields on topics including:

• Artificial Intelligence

• Virtual reality

• Drones

• Blockchain

• Internet Of Things (IoT)

• Cyber Security

• Future Of Work

• Vertical Farming

• Renewable Energy

• + much more

We deliver these outcomes through Monthly Meetups, Expert Emerging Technology Speakers, Networking and Consistent Community Engagement.

We would like to welcome everyone to our meetup with open arms from the Sunshine Coast and Worldwide via our LIVE meetup broadcasts which can be found here:

The Internet of Things (IoT)

Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast

This month we have Nick Browne presenting on IoT (Internet of Things) or as the oxford dictionary puts it: "The interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data". Nick is the co-organiser of our meetup and a Digital Systems Architect at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Imagine our devices, vehicles, homes and objects all communicating with eachother. Could this be the future? In 2020, almost all of us have some level of automation within the home, and these connected devices are now more affordable than ever. From our Bunnings Smart lighting to cheap Ebay security cameras, automatic blinds, water saving sprinklers, automatic pet feeders, robo vacuums and the good old garage doors. Almost everything can be digitally connected. Looking forward to seeing you there for an amazing presentation with networking and nibblies to follow. Many thanks to our sponsor The Sunshine Coast Innovation Centre for their beautiful venue and their ongoing support.

The Digitisation of Trust

Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast

This month we are diving into a mix of topics including the Digitisation of Trust and the Future of Aviation with our very own member of this meetup Indunil Weerasinghe (known to most of us as Indy), Founder, SkyChain Laboratories. Indy has been in the Aviation industry for over 15 years and has a passion for blockchain so this one should be a very interesting presentation. Digital trust can be defined as the measure of consumer and employee confidence in an organization’s ability to protect and secure data and the privacy of individuals. The concern with our data and the avalanche of data breaches occurring now are causing the industry to grow at a huge pace. In this meetup we will hear about digital trust and how it is becoming a valuable commodity for companies that earn it and how it is starting to change the way management looks at security. Looking forward to seeing you there for an amazing presentation with networking and nibblies to follow. Many thanks to our sponsor The Sunshine Coast Innovation Centre for their beautiful venue and their ongoing support.
