Australia’s leading publication for senior technology leaders today launched its highly anticipated podcast, ‘The CIO Show’ boasting the most candid, entertaining and informative conversations about tech today.

Australia’s leading publication for senior technology leaders today launched its highly anticipated podcast, ‘The CIO Show’ boasting the most candid, entertaining and informative conversations about tech today.

The debut episode is a two-part program looking at artificial intelligence in Australia, featuring interviews with no less than eight leading experts in this space, including CIOs working with AI at the coalface of industries including healthcare, mining, financial services and the law.

It’s obviously a very important emerging area with broad implications for business and society, yet as you’ll discover in this episode and the next, AI is something that surprisingly few Australian organisations have a firm grasp of, with even fewer able to claim they have made a real commitment to understanding and deploying the technology.

In the first episode of our podcast on AI, CIO's associate editor David Binning talks to Deloitte's analytics and cognitive leader, Alan Marshall, about why Australia is falling behind many other countries in our deployment of AI technologies.

He chats to the University of Technology Sydney's associate dean, research strategy and management, Michael Blumenstein, about the hive of AI activity across startups and projects servicing enterprises and government agencies, and Newcrest Mining's chief information officer, Gavin Wood, about how the company is panning for digital gold. MinterEllison's chief digital officer, Gary Adler, also discusses how AI is shaking up the legal sector.

In our second episode, landing later this month, we talk to top CIOs across three very distinct industries about their responses to COVID-19. Much has been said about the operational challenges, but as our guests will attest, there are some more fundamental issues at play which will likely resonate for a very long time to come.

After that we’ll be tackling the ever-controversial subject of customer-vendor relationships in ‘Vendors Behaving Badly’, followed by an episode dedicated to women in tech, where we’ll have a panel of expert guests trying to figure out, if there is a real problem, what is it? And are we really asking the right questions in this important discussion? 

We hope you enjoy 'The CIO Show' as much as we’re enjoying making it, and look forward to receiving your feedback, suggestions and contributions.
