My name’s Aimee Woods, I’m a Wiradjuri girl and I’m a Research Assistant at UTS.
This year’s NAIDOC theme Because Of Her, We Can really speaks to me because some of the most resilient and strongest people I know in my life are women, particularly Indigenous women.
TEXT ON SCREEN: Female Indigenous role models…
So my Aunt really encouraged me to get into uni, and now we’re working at the same uni. My mum is by far the most resilient person that I know. She’s really given up everything to make sure that my brother and I could have the lives that we have now. Her resilience really makes me wake up and think “yeah it’s fine, I can do this”.
TEXT ON SCREEN: Why is NAIDOC Week important?
Because Indigenous women are also some of the most disadvantaged people in the world, not just Australia, I think it’s really important to have a theme like this to celebrate all the good things.
I take a big part in NAIDOC Week because I believe it helps people ask questions that they’re not willing to ask at a normal convention, and I really like facilitating that, and it’s good to sort of talk to people and start up a conversation.

Two digits have gotten us far, but the evolution of innovation demands a revolution
What if binary was just the beginning?
And the space between the two digits holds the key to our future?
Computing power has reached its limit.
We’ve made things as small as they can get.
A new frontier, a new language, a new era of software, a new era of computing.
From definite states, to superpositions of states, states of exponential power.
Quantum computing. Computers 100 million times faster than yours. Stored in temperatures colder than deep space.
Software so powerful, processors so powerful.
The future is being invented today.
Cures for diseases, unbreakable encryptions, artificial intelligence, powerful machine learning, astronomy, engineering, finance, logistics, climate change.
This is the next chapter in our evolution.
How will you define the future?
