Key Artificial Intelligence (AI) Cyber-Tech Trends and What it Means for the Future.
This year is unique since policy makers and business leaders grew concerned with artificial intelligence (AI) ethics, disinformation morphed, AI had hyper growth including connections to increased crypto money laundering via splitting / mixing. Impressively, AI cyber tools become more capable in the areas of zero-trust orchestration, cloud security posture management (CSPM), threat response via improved machine learning, quantum-safe cryptography ripened, authentication made real time monitoring advancements, while some hype remains. Moreover, the mass resignation / gig economy (remote work) remained a large part of the catalyst for all of these trends.

The Next Frontier of Teaching and Learning is AI Agents.
Technology including Gen-AI doesn't just assist but actively engages in educating learners—on behalf of teachers and parents. Using specialised LLMs like OIMISA-7B, we've crafted agents that teach, question and test learners for parents and teachers. They also report back to  them enabling hyper-personalised support while centrally maintaining the human-in-the-loop.

AI Ethics.
AI Ethics concerns - Privacy & Surveillance How can my data be used to identify & track me? Can my data be used to train new models and what are the impacts of that on me? Differential privacy? Discrimination & Bias? Are our models fair? How do we prevent human biases from creeping into our models? How do we identify it when we get it wrong? Human Judgement / AI for Good What are the types of tasks that we want AI to handle? How do we prevent malicious use of models to create malicious or intentionally deceptive content? Do we want the AI flying our drones or launching our nuclear missiles?

The Story You Stepped In.
I've been helping tech startups around the country to uncover their most beneficial and true story framework, so that their pitches are stronger, and so that their teams are aligned. It's not enough to talk about the problem you're solving. There's a story, a metaphor, a framework that will help your audiences understand why that problem needs to be solved and why they should invest in it. I'd like to lead a workshop to help more tech entrepreneurs know how to find that story, and how to use it.  

AI-Driven Innovations in Healthcare: Bridging the Gap Between Technology and Wellbeing
In an era where technology increasingly intersects with all aspects of life, healthcare stands out as a field ripe for innovation. Our proposed programming, "AI-Driven Innovations in Healthcare," aims to explore the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in revolutionizing the health sector. This session will delve into how AI and ML technologies are not only optimizing patient care and operational efficiencies but also paving the way for groundbreaking advancements in personalized medicine, disease prediction, and treatment methodologies. I will showcase real-world applications and success stories, illustrating AI's role in diagnosing diseases with higher accuracy, enhancing drug development processes, and enabling predictive analytics for better health management. Additionally, the program will address the ethical considerations and challenges of integrating AI into healthcare, such as data privacy and the need for robust regulatory frameworks. By bringing together industry experts, healthcare professionals, and technologists, this programming promises to offer a comprehensive overview of AI's potential to enhance health outcomes, improve patient experiences, and foster a culture of innovation within the biohealth ecosystem. Our goal is to inspire attendees to consider how they can contribute to this evolving field, whether through developing AI solutions, implementing these technologies in healthcare settings, or ensuring ethical practices in their application.

Privacy and You
Your digital activity generates a treasure trove of data ranging from your interests and purchases to your online behaviors, all collected by the websites, apps, devices, and services you use every day.
