Public Relations Institute of Australia's National Conference in Melbourne on

Pesce has written a number of books on the topics of cyber security, machine 
learning and what is truth in today's social media environment. He was made an 
honorary adjunct at the Sydney University of Technology's new Animal Logic 
Academy in 2017 for his expertise in virtual reality and media production. 

In 2017 in conjunction with SouthernCross Austereo and Podcast One Australia he 
launched The Next Billion Seconds podcast which won him the best technical and 
scientific podcast at the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards.

Pesce's focus is on human relationships being the essential asset where trust 
has collapsed in the battle between truth and lies. His perspective is that all 
media passed through a computer can now be seen as suspect, manipulated and 
untruthful. Only through developing and maintaining deep personal relationships 
can attempts to deceive be defeated, he argues.
