Tasmanian Division President David Finnigan invites members and guests to celebrate our Centenary year and reflect on the year that was as we look forward to 2020.

Over refreshments, guests will learn about the Engineers Australia's priorities and goals for Tasmania in 2020 before the Young Engineers Australia - Tasmania group hosts "The Great Debate".

Our expert speakers will debate the topic of which is more important: traditional skills or automation and technology?

As technology develops, will traditional skills die out and is there merit to keep them alive for a place in future society? Will computer literacy be more important than fundamental engineering in future roles? Which of our current roles can/will be replaced by AI? Is automation really making tasks more efficient, or is it overcomplicating basic tasks? As the answers to these burning questions and others are explored, who will win? Humans or machines?
