On October 24, over 500 of Brisbane’s finest digital people descended upon the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre for Something Digital, the flagship conference of Something Digital Festival. 

With a theme of Power to the People, attendees explored how the human experience is central to our digital conversations, whether we are talking about algorithmic bias, ethics, smart cities, operational efficiencies, customer experiences, digital wellness or automation.

Whether you are talking about customers, or employees or society in general – ‘people’ are powering our digital innovations and you know what? People want their digital power back!​

People want to take back control of their digital personas and the impact tech is having on their lives. People want input into the big digital decisions that will shape our future. People also want to hold onto the conveniences that digital has given us.

It’s a big ask. But it is possible. And we have the power to make it happen.
