Disruptive Technologies
Interview with Andy Wright
In partnership with The Australian British Chamber of Commerce we are hosting a series of discussion panels on disruptive technology. This series is aimed at generating a thoughtful and engaging dialogue with subject-matter experts to explore the dichotomy of views on disruptive technology, notably its application and opportunity for the Australian Defence Force.
