Well, unlike many news organisations, we have no sponsors, no corporate or ideological interests. We don't put up a paywall – we believe in free access to information of public interest. Media ownership in Australia is one of the most concentrated in the world (Learn more). Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country. According to independent assessment, about 98% of the media sector is held by three conglomerates.

How long will it be until artificial intelligence surpasses that of our own? UQ graduate Matthew Dahlitz explores the issue in his new documentary, featuring scientists from the Queensland Brain Institute. While we may feel bombarded by doomsday predictions about creating robots with human-like intelligence, UQ graduate, neuropsychotherapist and filmmaker Matthew Dahlitz believes there's no need to panic. Dahlitz (Bachelor of Arts (Psychological Science) '94, Master of Counselling '14) has combined his knowledge of the human mind with his passion for the arts to release his first feature-length documentary with son Jachin, through their independent film production and media house, Perfekt Studios. Titled Toward Singularity, the documentary explores how brain science is being used to inform the development of super intelligent computers and features interviews with a number of scientists from UQ's Queensland Brain Institute (QBI).


The future of artificial intelligence in medicine The New Daily

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is giving medical professionals the ability to create a digital replica of patients, allowing doctors to predict how effective surgery will be. Australia's peak science agency CSIRO is developing AI-powered tools to diagnose mental health disorders more accurately and safeguard patients' genetic data in DNA testing. Northeast Health Wangaratta is already using AI to stop cyber attacks. Using its public hospital in regional Victoria, Northeast Health Wangaratta is investigating the use of AI to create a digital replica of its patients. Doctors then use the replica to trial treatment.


The Rise of the Robot Reporter

"The financial markets are ahead of others in this," said John Micklethwait, the editor in chief of Bloomberg. In addition to covering company earnings for Bloomberg, robot reporters have been prolific producers of articles on minor league baseball for The Associated Press, high school football for The Washington Post and earthquakes for The Los Angeles Times. MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Jonathan Davis hit for the cycle, as the New Hampshire Fisher Cats topped the Portland Sea Dogs 10-3 on Tuesday. Last week, The Guardian's Australia edition published its first machine-assisted article, an account of annual political donations to the country's political parties. And Forbes recently announced that it was testing a tool called Bertie to provide reporters with rough drafts and story templates.

Dr George Beaton is a partner in beaton and a senior fellow in Melbourne Law School, Australia. His published works include NewLaw New Rules – A Conversation About the Future of the Legal Services Industry (2013) and Remaking Law Firms: Why & How (2016). You have been a pioneer in research into NewLaw, what place does technology have in NewLaw? Is it central to its development? Just 18 months ago when I wrote Fresh thinking on the evolving BigLaw–NewLaw taxonomy little mention was made of the role of technology in NewLaw or BigLaw business model firms.


Biometrics: the future of AI?

#artificialintelligence

SYDNEY: Marketers are looking toward artificial intelligence (AI) to boost capability in measurement and targeting, according to an expert in the field. Karen Nelson-Field, Associate Professor at the University of South Australia and the author of Viral Marketing: The Science of Sharing, addressed this topic at the AdNews Media Summit in Sydney. And she outlined potentially significant opportunities for advertisers in the areas of viewability, ad avoidance, audience measurement and contextual programmatic targeting in real-time. While biometrics and similar technology have been used before to track people's responses to ads in a laboratory setting, Nelson-Field argued this is too removed from how people interact with advertising in real life. She suggested that the next step for marketers is in biometrics with vision AI behind it, a phase that will harness subconscious recollection and provide a more accurate picture of how consumers interact with advertising in real life.
