The Luddites are often portrayed as comical contrarians, on the wrong side of history.   In fact, they had real-life fears about how machinery would impact their textile jobs in 19th century England.   Today, artificial intelligence is driving similar fears about replacing humans.   Tech innovators, business leaders, and politicians will need a better understanding of the moral impact of AI. Especially as AI begins to drive cars, converse with customers, and influence life-and-death decisions on the battlefield.   But what exactly are the ethics of AI?  Connected Futures senior writer Kevin Delaney spoke with Colin Allen, who teaches the history and philosophy of science and medicine at Indiana University, Bloomington.   Among his many books, Dr. Allen was co-author of Moral Machines: Teaching Robots Right from Wrong.

In fact, rhino horn is made of keratin, like fingernails, and cures nothing. But that hasn’t stopped a thriving black market.  How can digital technologies protect wild rhinos? Connected Futures senior writer Kevin Delaney spoke with Bruce Watson, who leads Dimension Data’s global strategic alliance with Cisco.

Cybercriminals are brilliant, relentless, and ruthless. So how can organizations hope to fight them? One way is to hire people just like them (minus the ruthless part). A growing wave of companies are using hackers to foil hackers. They unleash “researchers” (aka hackers) to “attack” an organization’s defenses. Some of these companies create their own elite Red Teams of ethical, or white hat, hackers, as they are known. Others commandeer virtual armies of crowd-sourced hackers. The goal is the same: probe for weaknesses that may have escaped the internal security team’s best efforts. Kevin Delaney, senior writer for Connected Futures is joined by Jay Kaplan, CEO of the ethical hacking firm Synack.

  According to Cisco research, over 50% of consumers are willing to exchange certain types of data and personal information with businesses in exchange for value-added services. Most consumers have little or no reservation sharing “basic” information about themselves, their past purchasing behavior, or their interests and hobbies. However, there is a “trust cliff,” a steep drop-off in willingness to share certain types of personal information beyond this basic information. Factors such as location, purchases from other retailers, and so forth remains a point of question for many consumers. So how can organizations balance the need to secure customer data and privacy while delivering hyper-relevant experiences based on data insights? How can they avoid falling off the trust cliff, yet maximize the relationship with their customers? In this podcast episode, Michelle Dennedy, Chief Privacy Officer at Cisco and Michael Kaiser, Executive Director at the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) discuss how organizations can balance trust and need for data privacy. They will share why it’s critical for organizations to de-risk their infrastructure and deliver a personalized and secure customer experience.

Our world is rapidly connecting people, process, data, and things in ways that were unimaginable just a few years ago. The Internet of Everything (IoE) is at the heart of this transformation.   As more dark assets are “lit up,” organizations will receive an influx of valuable data that can lead to insights, knowledge, and opportunities. However, much of the data generated will be just beyond reach, frequently referred to as “dark data.”   While some leaders may realize the importance of managing dark data, there is a unique opportunity to capture and use that data to improve business outcomes, and ultimately transform today’s companies into digital organizations.   In this podcast, Cisco's Joseph M. Bradley and Isaac Sacolick, Global CIO and Managing Director at Greenwich Associates discuss how organizations can bring  dark data into the light, to enable a more holistic view of content, maximize the value of information, and bring business intelligence to a new dimension by developing contextual awareness.   Be sure to join the conversation, #FutureOfIT.
