The Sydney Science Festival brings together some of the greatest minds in science today, including festival ambassador and astronomer, Lisa Harvey-Smith, Indigenous astronomer Kirsten Banks, leading Artificial Intelligence expert Ellen Broad, AI researcher Toby Walsh, comedian and public health practitioner Alanta Colley, former Greens leader Bob Brown, and 2018 Australian of the Year quantum physicist Michelle Simmons.
