  • The Next 'Steve Jobs' will be a Farmer

    by JessicaFealy, 2 months ago

    My view from the paddock hasn’t been mango trees recently, instead it has been city lights and busy streets as I have been fortunate enough to attend both the Nuffield Australia farming conference and the GrowAg summit over the last few weeks.

    At the risk of sounding corny - my take home from my time away from the farm, is that it is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in Agriculture.

    The global trends of a rural to urban migration wave, combined with a hungrier world, a wealthier world, choosy customers and transformative technology make for a ripe mix... Continue reading

  • Celebrating Indigenous Business Month

    by Leesa Watego, 2 months ago
    2016-09-30_15.05.53

    For the second year in a row, the Indigenous business community is celebrating Indigenous Business Month. Most Australians don't realised that since time immemorial Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have been trading and engaging in commerce, both within and across the continent, as well as with others from other places, in particular the country we now know of as Indonesia. Stereotypes about Aboriginal people, communities and cultures exist that assumes that we do not 'do' business nor are adept at it. Indeed I still meet Australians everyday who are surprised and confounded by the very idea of Indigenous business.

  • Fixing auto-captions on YouTube

    by ACCAN, 12 months ago

    Did you know that when you upload a video to YouTube it automatically adds captions using voice recognition software? In theory this is a great feature which will help consumers who are deaf or hard of hearing to access these videos. However, the software isn’t always accurate and if the auto-captions aren’t edited then often they are incomprehensible.

    ACCAN has become increasingly aware of this issue and is calling on all Government agencies, politicians, political parties and any other organisations that post videos online to fix their auto-generated captions.

    Thousands of people around the country depend on captions to enjoy... Continue reading
