The CIO Australia Show: What the go with Web 3.0?
The CIO Australia Show
by IDG
1y ago
There's been much talk lately about the so-called Web 3.0 sparking debate as to whether it is indeed the future of digital communications (Facebook's or rather ‘Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg certainly thinks so) or rather an over hyped concept driven by brands struggling to maintain relevance, and indeed revenues amid growing competition (Zuckerberg would of course tell you it’s not.) If we take a wider look at the various technologies analysts tell us define Web 3.0 – or the metaverse - there are actually many that CIOs and other tech leaders should take seriously. The internet of things (and expand ..read more

Is your AI talking back?
The CIO Australia Show

Earlier this month this was a good deal of excitement – probably mixed with horror for some – following ‘revelations’ in the tech and indeed mainstream press that one of Google’s chat bots had become sentient. The call – or rather we might say alarm – was raised by software engineer, Blake Lemoine who asked a number of questions of the LaMDA chat bot he had been working with, which communicated several eerily-human responses including its desire to be considered a person with feelings and to be formally recognised as an employee at Google.  LaMDA stands for the Language Model for Dialogue ..read more

Why do A/NZ enterprises still suck at AI?
The CIO Australia Show
by IDG
1y ago
We’re coming up to almost two years since the first episode of The CIO Show, which was a two part series discussing how Australian organisations were progressing with artificial intelligence. The scorecard was less than glowing, with much lower confidence and greater fear than most other developed economies. Fear arising both from perceptions of AI as something super complex and other worldly, and from the rising chorus of voices concerned that the ‘machines were coming’ and jobs, life as we know it was under threat, all amid a seeming torrent of ethical and legal challenges – real and imagine ..read more

The CIO Australia Show: Lessons learned a year on from Nine’s ransomware nightmare
The CIO Australia Show
by IDG
1y ago
It’s been just over a year since Australian media giant Nine was rocked by a major ransomware attack pushing its head of IT and the company’s first true head of cyber onto a true war-footing. Coming amid a sharp rise in cyber attacks throughout the pandemic, it nevertheless delivered a jolt to many Australians, seeing such an established and recognised brand fall victim to something like this. As we know the attack led to some broadcast and other operations being seriously disrupted, as well as an almost 3 percent dip in the share price as news got to market. For media tech veteran, Damian Cro ..read more

The CIO Australia Show: Has the DTA had its day?
The CIO Australia Show

2y ago
The Digital Transformation Agency, or DTA, was established back in 2016 with an ambitious charter to steer the Australian public service towards being a world leader in the creation and delivery of digital services. Few would argue that it’s fallen well short of that, with a string of high profile projects failing to deliver despite going way, way over budget. The agency has also had a different boss for almost every year of its existence, alarming rates of churn across staff and senior management, and an increasingly secretive and unaccountable culture, as any journalist who’s tried to speak ..read more

The CIO Australia Show: Managing AI in the public sector
The CIO Australia Show
by IDG

As anyone who follows the Australian CIO50 would know, former Revenue NSW CIO Kathleen Mackay topped the list in 2021 largely for her work in applying AI and machine learning to help develop better systems and processes for identifying - and managing - vulnerable people with outstanding fines. Somewhat awkwardly for her, Revenue NSW, and if we’re honest us at CIO Australia as well, the NSW Ombudsman released a report late last year concluding that that machine technologies used by Revenue NSW between 2016 and 2019 (Mackay’s tenure was largely after that period) to garnish monies owed for ..read more

Helping Australian CIOs become better leaders
The CIO Australia Show
by IDG
2y ago
One of the key CIO trends we’ve seen throughout the pandemic is that tech leaders have now come to be seen as business leaders in ways we’ve not seen before. And as you’ll hear in this episode, to such an extent that it’s likely the role of CIO – including possibly the title itself – will shift even further away from being focussed just on technology, towards being a vastly more integrated role. But what do CIOs need to do – and know –to be become more effective leaders? And what of those CIOs with genuine ambitions to move into CEO roles? Cyber security is a key concern for CIOs and those exe ..read more
