  • KM Conversation Dinner

    The Palace Hotel

    "Conversation is a meeting of minds with different memories and habits. When two minds meet, they don't just exchange facts: they transform them, reshape them, draw different implications from them, and engage in new trains of thought. Conversation doesn't just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards." Theodore Zeldin (b. 1933) Historian & Author You are invited to sit down at a table across from (potentially!) complete strangers, and are each handed a dinner menu. It lists courses from Entrees, Main Meals, to Desserts - but instead of culinary dishes the menu proposes topics of conversation related to the world of Knowledge Management. The conversation menu presents an array of stimulating, thought-provoking topics covering a wide range of Knowledge Management topics. You and your dinner partners, your ‘muses,’ are ready to discuss and explore each of these questions throughout the meal at your own pace - it depends on mutual open-mindedness and willingness to share. By the end of the meal, you may have gotten to know a stranger very well, and developed new ideas and perceptions around different elements of Knowledge Management. Perhaps even co-created something innovative! Whether you believe you have something to share or something to learn - open conversations are always mutually beneficial where everyone walks away with some new knowledge. This is the gist of a Conversation Dinner, a concept conceived by a man named Theodore Zeldin from The Oxford Muse Foundation. https://www.oxfordmuse.com/?q=conversation-dinners#conversation-menu ******************************** This event is free, however please RSVP so we know how many people to book tables for. Then you simply turn up and join us at our tables. You can buy whatever you'd like to eat or drink at the bistro bar and enjoy the stimulation of our first KM Conversation Dinner. If you have trouble finding us call either Bobak [masked]) or Marie [masked]) ******************************** Here is a copy of our Conversation Menu for the evening: Entrée · Share your earlier memory in KM. · What is your area of interest/practice in KM and why? Main Meal · Global KM Community - what is happening globally in KM? · KM Standard ISO 9001 - should we know about this? · KM for Innovation - how does that happen? · What is the role and value of technology in KM? · What is a Learning Organisation and how does it fit with KM? Desert · What is the role of Working Out Loud in knowledge sharing? · What do you think the biggest asset for KM right now?

  • KM Case Study: Transport for NSW

    Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts (SMSA)

    KM Case Study: Transport for NSW Why and What: What is knowledge management like in a complex engineering business where it has a responsibility as a client to assure that the transport construction is fit for purpose? This case study is about how Asset Standards Authority within Transport for NSW has implemented and embedded knowledge management within the business and what are the key lessons learnt. Asset Standards Authority is an independent body which develops technical network standards across multiple transport modes including heavy rail, light rail, buses and maritime. It is a requirement for all contractors to adhere to our network standards when configuring infrastructure assets. The business recognises that is running a knowledge based business as a steward of engineering assurance for all activities on infrastructure assets, as well as being a requirement to be certified an ISO9001:2015 business. In this case study, it will cover: • How to sell the benefits of knowledge management to an organisation that is relatively immature in its understandings • The roadmap in implementing and embedding knowledge management • The knowledge management lifecycle and alignment with relevant ISO standards • Key successes and lessons learnt from the journey When: Please arrive at 5:30 pm for a prompt at 6.00 pm start, concluding at 7.30 pm.

  • Stretch your mind and expand your vision - Demystifying Quantum Computing

    Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts (SMSA)

    Stretching the mind and expanding your vision enhances innovation and productivity, optimises the way the mind functions, and alleviates mental blocks. Quantum computing will revolutionise the way we manage data, information, and more likely knowledge, in the near future. It is anticipated that, within a few years, well-controlled quantum systems may be able to perform certain complex tasks, solve complicated & complex problems such as chemical and mathematical problems, simulate probabilistic phenomena, handle analytics, deal with predictive analytics, process big data, modelling complex processes, etc, much faster than our conventional computers can even scratch the surface of now. In existing computing, a bit is a single piece of information that can exist in two states – 1 or 0. Quantum computing uses quantum bits, or 'qubits' instead. Quantum computing takes advantage of the strange ability of subatomic particles to exist in more than one state at any time. Due to the way the tiniest of particles behave, operations can be done much more quickly and use less energy than when done with classical computers. It would surpass the abilities of conventional managing data and information methods, techniques, and solutions. But the quantum future isn't going to come easily, and there's no knowing what it'll look like when it does arrive. At the moment, companies such as Google and IBM, and researchers are using a handful of different approaches to make quantum computing happen. Here's everything you need to know about the coming quantum revolution. • What is quantum computing? • What do you need to know about it? • How will it transform the economy and your business? • How can KM help Quantum researchers? Dr Peter Rohde, Senior Lecturer in the Centre for Quantum Software & Information at UTS, will address these questions in a completely non-technical manner, giving you the insights you need to understand the relevance of this future technology. He will explain the basic concepts of quantum computing for the lay audience, and focus especially on the implications and consequences of this technology. He will discuss in particular implications for knowledge management, as well as the unique knowledge management challenges that his field of research faces. Peter is open to learn as much from you as you do from him, so please feel free to come along to learn and discuss our future in Quantum Computing and how KM can help the current quantum computing challenges that researchers are facing. About the presenter: Dr Peter Rohde is ARC Future Fellow and Senior Lecturer in the Centre for Quantum Software & Information at the University of Technology Sydney. He is a world-leading researcher in optical quantum computing, also conducting research in quantum cryptography, metrology, measurement and optical state preparation. He is currently involved in China’s world-first quantum satellite program, which successfully demonstrated quantum cryptography over several thousand kilometres via satellite. He has published over 60 papers and received over 1,300 citations for his work. http://www.peterrohde.org https://www.uts.edu.au/staff/peter.rohde Who should attend: Business managers, Information and Knowledge Management practitioners, Innovation Managers, Business Consultants, Data Scientists, IT Professionals and Researchers.

    Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts (SMSA)

    Demystifying the hackathon workshop This 1.5 hours workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn and experience what it takes to organise a corporate hackathon and how hackathons can be a source of new knowledge. After the interactive educational session, we will get to experience our own KM hackathon in a collaborative, energised and fun-loaded environment. About Topic: Demystifying the hackathon The “hackathon” has become one of the latest vogue terms in business. Typically used in reference to innovation. Hackathons aren’t just for start-ups. They can play a valuable role in accelerating the digital transformation and innovation of large organisations. Hackathons characteristics are • Centered on the customer • Deeply cross-functional • Starting from scratch • Concrete and focused on output • Iterative and continuous A good hackathon session takes 24 hours. A 24-hour hackathon differs from more established brainstorming sessions in that it is all about results and jump-starting a way of working, not just idea generation.
