What’s being done with your face?

Pattern and facial recognition is revolutionizing medicine, the automotive industry and marketing and making people’s lives easier. However, these advances have a dark side to them too. You should prepare for the fact that your face may attract a lot of interest in the coming years.

The clash of the dark side and the bright side. What is human-friendly AI?

Is it time yet we thought of a “red safety button” in the event AI gets out of control? Or should we respond to our fear of an algorithmic armageddon more constructively by designing human-friendly AI?

A black swan or rather a gray rhino: how the tech industry is regaining trust

Over the past four years, tech companies have boasted rapid growth. Their problem was mounting distrust on the part of private users and growing media criticism. Now, with the global crisis sweeping across the globe, they may actually have happened upon an opportunity: a chance for the industry to mend its reputation.

The Earth is sick. Machines teach an environment class

The Earth is sick, and the causes of its disease lie in our choices, myopia, and lack of imagination. In our struggle to understand what is ruining our planet, we might find the solution in artificial intelligence.

The clash of the dark side and the bright side. What is human-friendly AI?

Is it time yet we thought of a “red safety button” in the event AI gets out of control? Or should we respond to our fear of an algorithmic armageddon more constructively by designing human-friendly AI?

The idea of a symbolic kill switch that would instantly neutralize hostile algorithms is not foreign to the average person nor to tech industry moguls and celebrity scientists. There is no point citing the repeated warnings of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Yuval Harrari and Stephen Hawking regarding

While any crisis may be a possibility to sway public opinion, it can also cause you to quickly fall out of favor. The pandemic poses numerous threats to the tech industry but it is not without silver linings. Companies may use their ad hoc responses

The Earth is sick. Machines teach an environment class

The Earth is sick, and the causes of its disease lie in our choices, myopia, and lack of imagination. In our struggle to understand what is ruining our planet, we might find the solution in artificial intelligence.

Climate change, with deforestation, melting glaciers, mass extinctions and carbon emissions, is the biggest problem of the century. If you struggle to understand what is ruining our planet, perhaps you should look for clues in artificial intelligence. Oceanographers, biologists, and meteorologists successfully use a host

The power of personalization. To please you, we’ll scan your smile

As a customer, I want to feel special no matter where I shop. This self-centeredness of mine is consistent with a common pattern of consumer behavior observed around the world. Corporate executives have wizened up to the fact that only deeply personalized products stand a chance of satisfying the spoiled customers of today. Personalization had to become the prevailing marketing trend.

What will life be like in the “brave new world”?

By now, urban areas run partly by algorithms can be found on all continents. And yet, Google’s idea to move nearly every aspect of a city district’s operation to a server is a whole new quality.

My article in CoFoundersTown published 30th of March 2020 on What will life be like in the “brave new world”? Until now, just about every time a conference devoted to smart cities offers examples of intelligent conurbations, it mentions areas in China and South Korea alongside London, Boston, Shanghai, New

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.
