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.
These are bleak times — but a lot of things are improving.

I’m a sucker for these things…
Endless churn of new technologies, new value chains, new markets and new challenges.
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.

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 !
There will be AI detectives—ppl hired to investigate algorithmic behavior no one else understands. And it’s going to pay a fortune. Get your degree in AI Forensics now, friends.

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!
You make your own luck…
I’m surrounded constantly by people that want a licence to create, to be given a special tag that will allow them to ‘go off and be creative’. However, I believe deeply that to create you need to excel at the basics, know the rules and put in the graft.
Getting it right, doesn’t arrive on a schedule or to plan, it’s after never ending effort. If I’m right in this belief, what we need more than ever is a culture of learning, linked to an environment that promotes constant effort and that gives people the time to succeed.
Expecting and appointed person to deliver genius to a schedule is a recipe for failure.
