According to our computers… you don't exist

A foreign friend of mine struggled for nearly three weeks trying to prove to his country’s authorities that he... existed. All because of an error in the country’s personal identification number database, which had simply “deleted” him. That is an example of how poorly managed or processed information may complicate the life of an average citizen and even cause social tensions.

Surviving in the digital age, future-proofing your business

Our friends and us have gone on a weekend trip into the wilderness lately, leaving behind all trappings of civilization. All worked wonderfully until our friends’ teenage son threw a fit over his smartphone which he shook anxiously, bellowing: “What is this! No Internet?!”

What a machine will think when it looks us in the eye?

Artificial Intelligence will do all of our work for us – it will even find a cure for cancer, claim enthusiasts. It will render man useless, respond pessimists, prophesying a doom of humanity at the hand of conscious machines.

Blockchain – the ultimate financial crash

Financial institutions are facing the difficult dilemma of whether to support or fight the development of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Regardless of their views on the matter, they realize that the new system that is emerging will inevitably undermine their raison d'etre.

Unfortunately, data processing errors can lead to situations far more complex than those described above, – situations with dangerous social consequences.

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, Machine Learning and Blockchain/Bitcoins. Such matters interest me and are what I want to focus on in my blog.

Experience

  • CEO at Atos Poland / Vice President Consulting and System Integration for CEE, a market leader in IT products and services and Digital Transformation in all sectors of the economy
  • CEO at ABC Data, a leading IT distributor in CEE which exports to 56 countries and direct operations in 11 countries
