Intelligence review recommends new electronic surveillance Act for Australia

A review into Australia’s intelligence community has recommended comprehensive reform of electronic surveillance laws, one that would repeal existing powers and combine them to avoid duplication, contradictory definitions, and any further ad hoc amendments to the existing three Acts.

Electronic surveillance powers enable agencies to use electronic or technical means, which would otherwise be unlawful, to covertly listen to a person’s conversations, access a person’s electronic data, observe certain aspects of a person’s behaviour, and track a person’s movements. Currently, these powers are contained within the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 (TIA Act), the Surveillance Devices Act 2004 (SD Act), and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979 (ASIO Act).

Parts of the Telecommunications Act 1997 and the Criminal Code Act 1995 are also directly relevant when considering these powers.

Each Act requires agencies to meet thresholds before accessing these powers and requires external authorities, such as judges, Administrative

Preparing Leaders For The Artificial Intelligence Age

Founder and CEO, Analytics Insight, providing organizations with strategic insights on disruptive technologies. 

Technological disruptions are redefining the era of rapid business transformation and changing the future of work, management, the implications for organizations and how they can navigate to the next horizon.

Artificial intelligence is one of the most disruptive technologies fueling this radical transformation. AI is replacing the nature, scope and scale of work and forcing enterprises to revise traditional business models in order to stay competitive.

As AI impacts businesses of all shapes and sizes across all industries, there is no reason to believe that leadership will be spared from the influence of AI. In fact, I believe it is very likely that AI will supplement many aspects of leadership, including responsibilities related to the processing of facts and information.

Although such changes bring valid concerns to leaders, it is also important to understand how

How Artificial Intelligence Can Aid Inventors To Prevent Idea Theft

Stealing another company’s ideas is nothing new in the cut-throat corporate world.

Steve Jobs, the late CEO of Apple, once said: “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.” Facebook helped build out its global empire with a copycat strategy when it lacked its own imagination and invention, prompting The Wall Street Journal to write: Facebook employees’ new motto? “Don’t be too proud to copy.”

But innovative companies must stand up to this longstanding practice of “borrowing” their ideas; this should not be dismissed as simply the cost of doing business in the fast-paced world of technology. It may not be easy, but coming to the rescue to protect ideas is technology itself.

Companies need to understand the options available to protect them.

Copyright is certainly used but has a very narrow scope. Trademarks are valuable but also limited because they only protect the likes of a business name

Opinion/Artificial intelligence and the future of warfare

By J. William Middendorf
 |  The Providence Journal

J. William Middendorf, who lives in Little Compton, served as Secretary of the Navy during the Ford administration. His recent book is “The Great Nightfall: How We Win the New Cold War.”

Thirteen days passed in October 1962 while President John F. Kennedy and his advisers perched at the edge of the nuclear abyss, pondering their response to the discovery of Russian missiles in Cuba. Today, a president may not have 13 minutes. Indeed, a president may not be involved at all.

This statement from Vladimir Putin, Russian president, comes at a time when artificial intelligence is already coming to the battlefield
