The Australian Defence network sustains ransomware attack. The three finalists in the DataTribe Challenge share insights on the competition. Rick Howard previews the new season of CSO Perspectives. And a look at threat trends.”

“Adam Bell returns to the podcast to discuss different techniques and approaches for optimizing UI code, and how to utilize tools like animations in order to build iOS apps that feel fast and responsive.”

“Our anchors begin today’s show with CNBC’s Mike Santoli taking a deep dive into the market setup for the week ahead, and 645 Ventures Co-Founder Nnamdi Okike shares his insight on big tech’s growth story. Then, our Julia Boorstin looks at growing concerns about misinformation and hate speech on Twitter since Elon Musk bought the platform, and Onsemi CEO Hassane El-Khoury discusses the chipmaker’s Q3 results.

Later, Anchorage Digital Co-Founder Diogo Mónica breaks down the crypto asset platform’s new partnership with Apollo Global Management.”

“Besides the huge shift to remote work caused by the global pandemic, many other changes have occurred in the workplace that employers need to understand and incorporate into their workforce strategy. On this podcast, Brad Hairston talks with Mark Settle, 7-time CIO and author, who explains how next generation collaboration tools are giving the evolving workplace the capabilities needed to thrive in the digital age.”

“The advancement of generative language models has been a force for good, but also for evil. On the show, Avisha Das, a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Texas Health Center, joins us to discuss how attackers use machine learning to create unsuspecting phishing emails.

When the M2 MacBook Pros should be showing up. And what colors might you be blocked from using on Adobe products?”

“Python has dominated data science programming for the last few years, but there’s another rising star programming language seeing increased adoption and popularity—Julia.

As the fourth most popular programming language, many data teams and practitioners are turning their attention toward understanding Julia and seeing how it could benefit individual careers, business operations, and drive increased value across organizations.

Zacharias Voulgaris, PhD joins the show to talk about his experience with the Julia programming language and his perspective on the future of Julia’s widespread adoption. Zacharias is the author of Julia for Data Science. As a Data Science consultant and mentor with 10 years of international experience that includes the role of Chief Science Officer at three startups, Zacharias is an expert in data science, analytics, artificial intelligence, and information systems.

In this episode, we discuss the strengths of Julia, how data scientists can get started using Julia, how team members and leaders alike can transition to Julia, why companies are secretive about adopting Julia, the interoperability of Julia with Python and other popular programming languages, and much more.”

“My guest on today’s podcast is Chris Wallace, former PROOF Artist and now the Founder of UltraDAO, a Web3 creative studio building a passionate community of creators, collectors, and fans interested in decentralised IP and brands.
