Will There Be an Internet of Electricity?

Blockchain, whose popularity has grown in lockstep with developments in the cryptocurrency market (Bitcoin, Ethereum, et. al.), is poised to expand into new territories. The energy industry, which is decentralizing gradually, may well advance blockchain more than the financial system will. Or, it may simply adopt it more extensively, sooner.

Technologies that will change 2019

It is not easy to imagine a technology that will receive as much publicity as the blockchain did last year but there’s little doubt that other new and innovative technologies will make even greater inroads into our daily lives in 2019.

Will blockchain trigger a shakedown of the global financial system?

The financial crash of 2008 demonstrated (to some) that large financial institutions need to be closely watched and strictly regulated. The meltdown some believe also demonstrated the need for an alternative to complex, abuse-prone financial instruments held by few, and understood by even fewer.

The twilight of the leaders

What role will organizational leaders play in the future? They won’t go away, but some believe the charismatic-type company executive will see his role diminish as power, authority, and responsibility gets distributed among largely self-governing groups. Consequently, leaders will have to learn to live without some of the privileges to which they have grown accustomed.

The energy industry, which is decentralizing gradually, may well advance blockchain more than the financial system will. Or, it may simply adopt it more extensively, sooner.

According to one view, blockchain may become for the world of transactions and settlements what the internet has become for global communication. However, an even stronger case can be made for its potential to transform the energy industry.  A dozen-plus years ago, new software enabled

Technologies that will change 2019

It is not easy to imagine a technology that will receive as much publicity as the blockchain did last year but there’s little doubt that other new and innovative technologies will make even greater inroads into our daily lives in 2019.

Certainly, rapid progress in artificial intelligence will continue to be made and be widely reported. Despite the controversies, autonomous vehicles will proliferate, and it would be good to see serious, in-depth articles about industry regulation (licensing for the use of autonomous vehicles on public roads,

Many believe that new tool could be the blockchain, with the new currency, the Bitcoin, based on it. Could they put an end to the volatility and opacity of the financial sector? Today, cryptocurrencies are on everyone’s lips, with blockchain – a distributed peer-to-peer database

Leadership in the Digital World – Interim Managers Association

Leadership in the digital age describes the skills needed by leaders in an ever-changing and more complex world.

  Transforming an organization requires the courage leader, awareness of market trends and the ability to choose right people. Perhaps this is a paradox, but in times of high specialization, the leader’s versatility is worth its weight in gold – says Norbert Biedrzycki, passionate about

The twilight of the leaders

What role will organizational leaders play in the future? They won’t go away, but some believe the charismatic-type company executive will see his role diminish as power, authority, and responsibility gets distributed among largely self-governing groups. Consequently, leaders will have to learn to live without some of the privileges to which they have grown accustomed.

Over the past few decades, the group has become the corporate model for accomplishing work, but the perception of leadership has not changed much; they have been (and are still) seen as powerful individuals who form and direct those groups. Even as late as the

Are we ready for military AI?

Will Artificial Intelligence weapons soon be able to launch military operations independently of human input?

My article in Data Driven Investor published 21st of February 2019. Today, algorithms may come in charming shapes, such as Sophia, a robot with a lovely attitude and an enlightened philosophy. Others, like Atlas, are being built to look like Robocop brutes that can run, jump, and, maybe, shoot. Why

Want to know who the leader is? Ask him to decide

Every person makes hundreds of decisions daily, most automatically and without reflection. The decisions made in organizations also are mostly routine, practically automatic.

My article in Data Driven Investor published 25th of January 2019. One of the most valuable things an effective leader can offer an organization is the ability to make decisions, hopefully the right ones.  However, it is the way the decision is made that separates outstanding leaders

Data Driven Investor: The Technologies Poised to Change the World in 2019

Rapid progress in artificial intelligence will continue to be made and be widely reported. Autonomous vehicles will proliferate, and it would be good to see serious, in-depth articles about industry regulation rather than last year’s sensational coverage focusing on accidents and disasters.

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.
