In the news recently have been a couple of robots designed to improve safety: Woodside Petroleum’s West Australian businesses are reportedly trialling NASA’s Robonaught, a humanoid robot for various tasks in extreme conditions: http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-02/humanoid-robot-used-in-woodside-petroleum-wa-mines-ai/8236508; and engineers at the university of Illinois have designed robots that fly like bats in an effort toward improving drone safety around humans.
Also recently announced is the appointment of Michael Ward as the new British Consul General for NSW who has recently arrived in Sydney to focus on trade and investment with Australia as Director General, Department of International Trade, Australia and New Zealand.
The Tallinn Manual 2.0 has recently been released on Amazon Kindle for download; NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency has announced its second annual Defence Innovation Challenge which is now accepting submissions until 3rd March, 2017; and, NIST has launched a Wireless Systems for Industrial Systems project which is developing comprehensive guidelines to secure wireless platforms for smart manufacturing, and have recently published a rigorous paper on radio frequency propagation important to, among other things, reliability.
Finally, I greatly enjoyed talking taking the idea of cybersecurity to a profitable reality at the prestigious CFO Forum with CAANZ and Macquarie University this past week, where we received excellent feedback:
