EP17 - Crypto, Regulators and Digital Central Bank CurrenciesEP16 - The Metaverse - what is it and what does it mean for business and societyEP15 - Interview with David Shrier - Augmenting your career with AIEP14 - Bioinformatics and brain-computer interfacesEP13 - An analogue renaissance, digital real estate and bioinformatics
In a world of digital landlords and nano-sensors, the ones and zeros are king. In this episode of The Digital Speaker series, I am going to explore an emerging trend in the digital sphere; an increasing aversion to over-digitised tech and why we may be on the cusp of an analogue renaissance. After, I will go to the other end of the digital spectrum and examine how the digital world I exist in, could one day be worth more than land in the real world. Then, for the final segment in today’s digital download, I am going to take a look at bioinformatics. What is it and what it spells for the digital future of healthcare. So, get comfortable, sit back, and let us start speaking digital.

EP12 - Why data rights will be the new civil rights
Most of us would agree that the world of work will change more in the next decade than it has probably in the last 250 years since the first industrial revolution. However, it is also the case that there has never been a time in history when so many critical decisions have been made on our behalf, with so little transparency. In today's show, we have Dan Turchin, sharing his insights with us on the hype of today, AI, and especially AI ethics and how we can be human first in an era of technology, i.e. how to use AI technology in an ethical and responsible manner. Artificial intelligence, in essence, is math + data. With AI becoming commonplace, the need for data is growing as well but we need to ensure that companies treat our data responsibly. As a result, data rights will be the new civil rights.

EP11 - Interview by Saana AzzamEP10 - Digitally savvy politicians and liquid neural networksEP09 - The rise of DigitalismEP08 - OpenAI, ethics in AI and protein foldingEP07 - Interview with Dion HinchcliffeEP06 - Algorithmic management
In the 6thepisode of The Tech Journal, The Digital Speaker discusses algorithmic management; what it is, how it helps, how it hurts, what the future holds, and how it will affect you personally. So, put your feet up, get comfortable and let us start speaking digital. Algorithmic management is the use of computer algorithms and artificial intelligence techniques to manage a team of human employees. By collecting massive quantities of data, in particular data about employee performance, algorithmic management seeks to automate large portions of the managerial decision-making process. Since it is becoming increasingly commonplace within organisations, it is important to be aware how algorithmic management will affect your job. So, get comfortable, sit back, and let us start speaking digital.
