Will quantum computers enable us to defy the laws of physics?

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 be able to do then?

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?

Will algorithms commit war crimes?

It’s clear that the military is developing smart technologies. We owe many of the innovations we know from civilian applications to military R&D, including the internet itself (which began as Arpanet), email, and autonomous vehicles. But today modern weaponry relying on machine and deep learning can achieve a worrisome autonomy.

Dear Citizen, blockchain will change your life!

Blockchain can bring huge benefits to the sectors of finance, energy and transport. But what about ordinary citizens, voters and entities that do not generate business value? Could this new technology prove its worth also in public administration?

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

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?

Machine, when will you learn to make love to me?

People’s lives are not all work. We need close human contact and emotional interactions with others. All this also concerns the area of eroticism. Are we in for a sexual revolution featuring artificial intelligence?

Contemporary debates on robotization focus typically on machines that populate workplaces. However, people’s lives are not all work. We need close human contact and emotional interactions with others. All this also concerns the area of eroticism. Are we in for a sexual revolution featuring artificial

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?

Unlock – Blockchain will revolutionize Stock Exchanges

Today’s investor relies on a traditional system of buying, selling and accounting for transactions that are old enough to be called ossified. The system generates considerable costs and adds to the time needed to close transactions. This is because trading in financial assets requires multiple entities arranged in a complex web of intermediaries, settlement systems and business partners.

Summary of my article in Unlock – link. Norbert Biedrzycki Head of Services CEE at Microsoft, recently wrote a piece in datadriven investor about how blockchain will transform the stock market. According to Norbert Blockchain can be used by the world’s stock exchanges especially since the govern

Four Grim Dreams of Great Technology

Are there limits to this technological universe, which we’ve grown to take for granted? Are there serious warnings looming on the horizon that people are choosing to ignore? Here are a few threats affecting nearly the entire world of technology.

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 –

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.
