Adrian Web is the the Future Simulation Technology Officer (former Manager of Virtual Worlds) within the Australian Public Service. His role is looking at how we can better utilise technologies and capabilities from all walks of life to create a more engaged and prepared future workforce. As a public servant, it can be summed up as being an unbiased evangelist inside the wider commonwealth for new and emerging technologies and practices.
This involves understanding products and systems capabilities, their limitation and discovering the best solution for the problem at hand. This is particularly focused within the simulation, VR, AR/MR and serious games space. My personal mission is to bring the simulation and gaming industries closer together, in aiding to create an Australian grown revolution and talent pool for both.
