If you’re following the cybersecurity buzz and – at least occasionally – take the time to think for a minute, it’s hard to avoid getting the feeling that everything is broken. And it is. But the show must go on. Here’s how it works.
Humans don’t really like robots and certainly not robots that look like us – unless they’re in a movie or TV show. In short – we don’t like competition. That’s why we don’t want autonomous cars.
Do you drive a hybrid? I do. It’s good for my economy. And it’s bad for the climate. Actually, just about everything hybrid is bad. And ‘hybrid driver’ is possibly the worst …
It’s truly amazing what’s going on on Mars these days. Smart people, great planning and incredible technology is moving cargo from Earth to Mars more or less automatically. Then conducting experiments, even having a helicopter working autonomously – in totally unknown terrain. While here on Earth even the simplest emergency planning seems to be a big challenge – and controversial. Why?
We’ve heard it for years. From climate change deniers in particular and from politicians, business people and (almost) everyone else. While denying reality, many claim tech will fix it anyway. Wishful thinking indeed, but the premise is correct. Tech won’t fix it, but tech may actually save us.
My previous post, AI’s notorious lack of intelligence, raised quite a few eyebrows – judging from the (inspiring) feedback. The distance between hype and reality is huge, the misunderstandings and disappointments plentiful while big money seems to be pouring in from salivating investors. What are we missing?
We’ve been in it for quite some time. But do we realize how much it has changed us? And how different it turned out compared to expectations?
I’m not joking. Most people don’t care about privacy. If they did, social media and a lot of other things in the digital world would be different. Actually, if people were as concerned about privacy as the pundits and many lawmakers want us to be, the digital economy would be in shambles.
It may be a phenomenon local to my neck of the woods, but I don’t think so. I’m seeing ads and announcements for ‘digital transformation conferences’ all over the place. And I don’t get it. This is 2022, not 2015. If someone haven’t taken the transformation plunge yet, it’s too late. Sorry.
Of course we notice them. Some of them. The small things that change our lives. We embrace them, like them. And we completely ignore them in our planning …
