Four grim dreams of great technology

The non-technological world is virtually disappearing – it is becoming unknown and inaccessible. Any information one cannot look up on a web-enabled smartphone is considered to be either non-existent or of no consequence for the world. At least to my world.

The seductive business logic of algorithms

Certain machine behaviors never cease to amaze me. I’m astounded by their ability to learn from their accomplishments and from their interactions with we humans.

In the digital economy you are for sale

How should the company behave in order to strengthen competitiveness in the world of data for sale? What benefits can individual customers derive from a world dominated by huge data sets?

The blockchain smart contracts revolution

It is quite clear for everyone by now that smart blockchain-based contracts have the potential to revolutionize the way we conclude agreements, execute transactions and grant authorizations. They transform the way many industries work. What can the technology do for regular citizens and small businesses?

The world has come to a point where life without the pervasive presence of technological gadgets is very hard to imagine. And yet, this technology-filled world is not immune to crises. Which of them scare us the most? The non-technological world is virtually disappearing –

How should the company behave in order to strengthen competitiveness in the world of data for sale? What benefits can individual customers derive from a world dominated by huge data sets?

Today, the world’s economies increasingly rely on the production of intangible goods. So, what should businesses do to become more competitive in an information-driven world? And, just (if not more) importantly, how can we – consumers, individuals – benefit from the huge data sets about

The Quantum Internet: A nightmare from a spy dream

Some people believe that quantum transmissions will provide absolute data security and one day become the foundation of all digital communication. Is that belief justified?

Ensuring that information sent over the internet does not fall into the wrong hands is one of the greatest technological challenges of our age. Therefore, network administrators and cryptologists closely follow reports on the development of the quantum internet. Some people believe that quantum transmissions will provide absolute data security and one day become the foundation of all digital communication.

Data Driven Investor: Time We Talked to Our Machines

Today, we can see creatures made by Boston Dynamics jump and run and perform acrobatics. Robots have become as agile as we are. In fact, AI has been acting ever more human-like, and not only in robotics.

My article in Data Driven Investor published 12th of September 2019. We talk to our machines more and more often: the smartphones, computers and digital assistants on our desks. Are keyboards, and the manual operation of electronic devices, becoming obsolete? Over the last few years, artificial intelligence (AI) has

Quantum technology and quantum algorithms are evolving. What will they bring? I hope a lot of good.

What has made quantum computers so exciting lately? Perhaps the fact we are approaching the limits of computing capabilities of the kinds of transistor-based machines we have long been using. They are limited by the laws of physics, which prevent us from packing more processors on chipboard.

Computers are used to solve problems, and the type of problems they solve depends on their algorithms and hardware as well as their capabilities and limitations. Imagine what would happen if you could lift these limitations once and for all? What would modern quantum computers

The Moguldom Nation: Will Blockchain Transform The Stock Market?

The rules that govern trades in financial assets have changed little over the past two or three centuries. Some say those rules have worked relatively well (apart from a few world-shattering crashes now and then). Does it need to change? Should it change? Can it change?

Blockchain can make it easier to transfer property rights and other assets by reducing transactional costs and boosting trust between investors. But can it be used by the world’s largest stock exchanges?

ODAILY China: Will blockchain transform the stock market?

Blockchain can make it easier to transfer property rights and other assets by reducing transactional costs and boosting trust between investors. But can it be used by the world’s largest stock exchanges?

Reprintint and translation of my article titled “Will blockchain transform the stock market?” to chinese at ODAILY China (link), from Data Driven Investor (link). Below you will find english version of this article as well. 编者按:本文编译自 Data Driver Investor 报道,原文作者:Norbert Biedrzycki,是微软服务CEE(Microsoft Central Eastern Europe·中东欧)主管,前麦肯锡数字副总裁、前甲骨文咨询和业务发展服务部门的负责人。 通过减少交易成本和增强投资者之间的信任,区块链可以使产权和其他资产的转移变得更加容易。但它有机会被世界上最大的证券交易所使用吗? 在过去的两三个世纪里,金融资产交易的管理规则几乎没有改变。有人说,这些规定相对来说运行得不错(除了偶尔发生几次震惊世界的危机之外)。那么它需要改变吗?它应该改变吗?它能改变吗?

About me

Why a blog?

The Internet and new technologies are bound to continue to change our lives ever more profoundly. I have long dealt with technologies, leading technology companies and experts in the field. I advise clients on how to modify their business and embrace latest technologies to satisfy their needs and those of their customers.

I consider myself lucky as my job is also my passion. I want to share the passion with others not only in conference rooms but also beyond. By working daily on the interface of business, technology and IT, I get to meet wise fascinating people. We often talk, argue and inspire each other. The resulting inspirations and musings on business and technology are at the core of this blog. I hope that its content will inspire you to think and discuss things, which I wholeheartedly encourage.

Passions

I have been watching technologies change for years. I believe that the next wave of development is going to be driven by such technologies and trends as Virtual and Augmented Reality, the Internet of Things, Robotics and Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Blockchain. Such matters interest me and are what I want to focus on in my blog.
