It was never about Europe…

European leaders have continually expressed exasperation that the British have really been negotiating not with them, but with each other. But perhaps it is time to recognise that there is a useful truth in this: Brexit is really just the vehicle that has delivered a fraught state to a place where it can no longer pretend to be a settled and functioning democracy. Brexit’s work is done – everyone can now see that the Westminster dodo is dead. It is time to move on from the pretence that the problem with British democracy is the EU and to recognise that it is with itself.

Managing the legacy…

How many organizations are stuck between managing efficently for short term gain at the risk of killing their long term future? I see them everywhere.

Today’s example…

 

 

Deux records pour Tesla…

Autre record hautement symbolique pour Tesla, au 3e trimestre 2018 : Il s’est vendu aux Etats-Unis davantage de Model S, Model X et Model 3 que de Mercedes : 69.925 contre 66.542 unités. Si la progression des ventes de VE produits à Palo Alto continue à ce rythme, BMW sera probablement dépassé au cours du présent 4e trimestre 2018. Le constructeur à l’hélice a vendu de juillet à septembre dernier 71.679 exemplaires de ses modèles au catalogue : une très courte longueur d’avance, de seulement 1.754 unités !

AI jobs for the future…

AI detective sounds great and will probably exist, so will the AI auditor and the AI ethicist.

Imagine the meetings of the future where commitees spend days debating what the AI was thinking and did it have intent.

Can’t wait for the confirmation hearings for the AI Supreme Court!
