Ideas that Travel

Travel Bulletin - - TECHNOLOGY -

Fe­bru­ary 17 saw Qan­tas to­gether with Tedxsyd­ney achieve a new mile­stone. Aboard QF73 from Syd­ney to San Fran­cisco, the two or­gan­i­sa­tions com­bined to launch ‘Ideas That Travel’, the world’s first tech­nol­ogy talk in the sky. Four of Aus­tralia’s tech­nol­ogy and sci­ence in­no­va­tors en­ter­tained their fel­low pas­sen­gers via a live-streamed broad­cast at the nose of the plane on the Qan­tas in-flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem, with top­ics in­clud­ing the fu­ture of de­sign, quan­tum physics, ro­bot­ics and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. Qan­tas spokesper­son Olivia Wirth said “One of the rea­sons we re-launched flights be­tween Syd­ney and San Fran­cisco was to sup­port grow­ing busi­ness travel driven by the tech boom and we’re look­ing for­ward to play­ing our part in strength­en­ing ties be­tween in­no­va­tors on both sides of the Pa­cific.” are Qan­tas flight staff to­gether with Olivia Wirth, and Ed­wina Throsby, Tedxsyd­ney Head of Cu­ra­to­rial.
