The last century saw technological change of an unprecedented scale and pace. With massive developments in communications mobility, on-demand content, processing power, and realistic technology like 3-D and holography, the pace of change is not expected to slow.

In last week's Wednesday Lowy Lunch, Telstra's Chief Technology Officer Professor Hugh Bradlow reviewed the impact of information and communications innovations on human behaviour and global economic prospects — and looked at the implications for Australia's competitive future.

You can listen to Professor Bradlow's speech here; he reviews his major themes in our five-minute interview below:
