The inaugural TEDxDeakinUni – ALL AROUND, celebrates the amplitude of pervasiveness, whereby everything that unites and transforms has the quality of traversing across boundaries. Winds and currents, air and water are among the natural elements that express the essence of pervasiveness along with fluidity, motion and immersion.
New technologies of the mind and matter embody the concept of ‘all around’ through augmented realities, responsive environments and hybrid ecologies including human and artificial intelligences.
While technology today excites and pushes boundaries, it also presents challenges impacting the environment. Pervasiveness presents us with many important questions, such as the existence of natural limits at the expense of technological advancement and the planetary cost of our actions as a species and the ways to achieve sustained prosperity and balance within an interdependent world.
TEDxDeakinUni - ALL AROUND will bring together scientists, artists, thinkers and creators across a wide range of disciplines to provide insight and answers to these questions by looking at the forces of pervasiveness shaping the conditions for the emergence of new possible worlds.
