This is no surprise, now that we’re debating the ethical questions that surround the use of AI technology: most especially, how easily AI can weaponize computing—for businesses as well as bad actors.

How Gamification Boosts Consumer Engagement

CEB IT

The idea of a subscription car service isn’t new, but a subscription service that rewards drivers for better driving is definitely different. To encourage safer driving for its Kinto car subscription, Toyota rewards “better” drivers with points that lower monthly payments. Organizations use gamification to encourage participation in apps, work out programs and even to reward employees, but it’s now taking center stage for a more unexpected industry: Automotive companies.

David Linthicum

Of course, this is likely to grow significantly, expected to reach almost 40 percent by 2023. However, it’s a bit of a surprise that IDC is also expecting public and private cloud spending to outperform “traditional IT spending” in 2020. We can define traditional as anything that’s not a private or public cloud.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
