The Importance Of ‘Agility’ In The Future Of Work

Julia Stead is the CMO of Allocadia, a marketing performance management platform that helps maximize marketing’s impact on businesses.

Now that many of us have hit the eight-month mark, if not longer, of working from home, it’s high time to have a broader conversation about the future of work. At the beginning of the pandemic, most of us embraced a “we’re all in this together” mentality, assuming the disruption in our lives would last a few weeks — or maybe a month or two. I don’t have to tell you how that one played out. With no end in sight, it’s time to rip off the Band-Aid and explore how to make remote work effective and sustainable long term.

No matter how you slice it, we’re at the precipice of a landmark shift in work norms on many frontiers — where we work, when we work, even h

Strange Bedfellows? What Tech PR and Sci-Fi Have in Common

If you are a science fiction enthusiast like me, you’re well aware of big upcoming events like the theatrical release of the movie Dune, slated for October of next year. I’m excited about seeing this new version, which is said to reflect the classic book more effectively. And hopefully, it will expunge bad memories of David Lynch’s campy 1984 version. I know many others in the tech sector are as excited about the new Dune as I am. It is the rare movie that makes the front page of a major tech publication more than a year before its release.

Interview with an AI – Insights into Education, Technology, Health, Innovation and Climate Change

As part of my research into AI and machine learning, I am formulating the core principles that contribute to the foundation of my future product offering for digital business development that I believe organisations should embrace as we advance into the “Information Learning Age”.

So I grabbed a beer, sat down at my computer and decided to do a series of interview questions with one of the most ground-breaking machine learning platforms to surface in the last few years – OpenAI.  I was keen to understand the insights of the latest GPT-3 predictive language model whose output is driven by data input at a scale through one of the now many service provider start-ups using the platform, and one that uses algorithms trained through the mass collation of content on the internet. 

In many ways, the wide net of output responses from OpenAI used by copyAI can be considered,
