Dear fellow information professionals I am pleased to present the IIM Newsletter in a new ‘look and feel’, the result of the hard work by our directors Linda Shave and Robert Goode – a huge thanks to them. In the last couple of months, we have held a couple of successful activities:
in Perth their August seminar "Business Intelligence and Information Management using out of the box SharePoint and Outlook365";
in Canberra on the 29th Aug (jointly organised with DAMA Australia) we held the inaugural seminar of a series of dedicated to the field of Artificial Intelligence, called AI@Work.
The inaugural AI@Work seminar was very well attended, and we are now working on the next session, with the theme "Ethics in AI". As we did with the first seminar, we plan to broadcast this seminar live via internet so our interstate community can participate in this exciting event. A copy of Perth's August seminar and the recording of the first "AI@Work" video are available on IIM’s website. I hope that you will enjoy reading articles prepared for you in this newsletter. Please provide us with your feedback on the content and the new look of your IIM eNewsletter (please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org).
From the successful Information Awareness Month (IAM) 2019, the presidents of DAMA (Andrew Smailes) and IIM (Vladimir Videnovic) agreed to collaborate on a series of seminars focusing on the practical use and experiences of AI solutions.
Speakers at the first seminar in August were Tony Krizan CFO and CIO NHMRC; Dr Neil Brittliff Data Scientist Microsoft; Jovan Stojanovic tech entrepreneur and founder of the Agronomio startup company and Tony Boyle Automated Reasoning Alliance sponsor to the event.
