Dr. Neil Brittliff has worked in numerous government departments largely in the Law Enforcement and Health sector. Five years ago, Neil was awarded a PhD from the University of Canberra on his work on the application of machine learning algorithms on data that has not undergone the traditional data cleansing processes. For the last three years, Neil Brittliff is a Data Scientist and Cloud Solution Architect with Microsoft.
Dr Neil Brittliff will be talking about Knowledge Engineering and how this is different from the more traditional Data Engineering. He will be looking on how the technology landscape has changed over the years and how Deep Learning Frameworks are likely to dominate the Analytical landscape into the future.
Neil will highlight some of his work with Microsoft and how AI and Cognitive Services are used to monitor threated species in both Queensland and the Northern Territory. In addition, Neil will discuss how IoT (Internet of Things) can be used to manage farms in Victoria.
Tony Krizan is substantively Executive Director Corporate Operations and Information, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer of the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
Tony is temporarily leading the Technology and Transformation Branch, as CIO, during an intensive period of deployment of NHMRC’s new grants management solution, Sapphire.
Tony has experience across a number of industries, featuring 28 years in the public sector across a broad range of policy, program and corporate roles in the Finance, Employment, Education and Training and Health and Ageing portfolios. Data and information management have been central across all of Tony’s public sector responsibilities.
NHMRC fosters intelligence development as it funds and draws on the intellectual capital of Australia’s world leading health and medical researchers. A few years ago, when NHMRC embarked on the development of machine learning algorithms to assist in resource-consuming tasks, one of the initial concerns was how these Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications would impact on the existing personnel.
Over time, the number of grant applications increased significantly and the level of complexity and sophistication of these applications has also grown. The ‘traditional’ manual process required a team of 20 people to perform over 500 hours of effort to complete the task of analysing applications. With the introduction of AI, the time required to perform the same job was reduced down to six hours!
In his keynote, Tony will outline a number of NHMRC developments using advanced analytics, including natural language processing and machine learning, to better manage and synthesise data, accelerate operations and enhance decision making at the organisational level. The presentation will also reflect briefly on key lessons and future potential.
Date: Thursday 29th August 2019 Time: 17:30 for 18:00 start; we plan to finish by 19:30 Location: The National Press Club,16 National Circuit, Barton ACT Web conference (details to be advised closer to the event)
Overview The Institute for Information Management and DAMA Australia have joined together to present a seminar series, focused around the practical use and experiences related to implementing solutions based on the Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The first seminar in this series will cover a range of case studies, focused on using AI in Semantic Analysis.
Speakers: Tony Krizan Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer, National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)
Neil Brittliff Data Scientist, Microsoft
Jovan Stojanovic AI Enthusiast, City AI
Anthony Boyle Director, Automated Reasoning Alliance
The second in the series IIM's Demystifying Intelligent Information Management
David Dunn from Smart Office Systems and the City of Nedlands Executive Director and the City's Information Analyst will present: Business Intelligence and Information Management using out of the box SharePoint and O365.
David will talk about the opportunities to manage business information and processes more effectively using Microsoft Office 365, Power BI and SharePoint-online.
The City of Nedlands will share their real-life experience and their journey from paper-based processing and legacy record management - to online processing with automated workflows and business intelligence dashboards. They will also outline the practical business benefits they achieved and share some of the challenges they encountered along the way.
This event will have appeal to ICT Professionals, Decision Makers and Information Managers alike.
