When will robots embrace us?

The sight of a robot handling pallets in a warehouse is nothing unusual. How dumbfounded would we be though if that robot flew off the handle and raved about not wanting to work all day long. Is it possible for machines to feel anger, fear or joy and recognize such emotions in people?

A robot lied and thus became human

Big lies, little lies and lies of omission play an essential role in society. Without occasionally concealing our true opinions about people around us, we could never be able to create lasting social bonds. Clearly, lies can be useful to humans. But can they also be useful to robots?

Five technology quotes that have impressed me

I have chosen a few quotes by famous people that have left a mark on me. The quotes cover a wide range of topical issues, even though some are only a couple of lines long.

Why we’re building our customer approach on Design Thinking

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.

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.
