Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across the country met at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) in Sydney last week to discuss ways in which technology can empower and assist First Nations peoples.

The IDX (Indigenous Digital Excellence) Summit explored a range of topics, including how new technology can solve old problems and how to strengthen Indigenous participation, practice and entrepreneurship in the digital economy.

NCIE chief executive Kirstie Parker said the broad range of speakers and participants had made for an inspiring gathering.

“Everyone is on the same page. We know this is a wave that we can either ride and influence or we can miss out,” she said.

“Because our communities are already in so many respects disenfranchised, we need to embrace technological advances and make sure they work for us.
