Want to Take Better Notes? Ditch the Laptop for a Pen and Paper

An interesting read about how using pen and paper helps you to take better notes than using a computer: Want to Take Better Notes? Ditch the Laptop for a Pen and Paper, Says Science

I personally always struggled taking notes on a computer and have been a fierce user of notebooks (especially since I discovered reusable ones). Well now I will have an even better excuse to continue doing so ๐Ÿ˜„

Tapping into the power of humble narcissism

No, “humble narcissism” is not an oxymoron; it’s a combination of qualities that the best leaders and companies have. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant explains why in this interesting TED article.

How to keep human bias out of AI

As I have recently been working on a new Data Strategy, taking into consideration how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help us to provide better insights and advises to our customers, it is also the right time to consider the risks associated to such technology. I'm not talking about ๐Ÿค– Skynet taking over the world ๐Ÿ˜‰ but how, if not well use, AI can reinforce human bias instead of helping us being better advisors!

Here is a great talk from Kriti Sharma @ TED on how to keep human bias out of AI.

The 2011 Sun-Herald City2Surf, presented by Westpac for Medecins Sans Frontieres Australia
Médecins Sans Frontières is the world's leading independent organisation for emergency medical humanitarian aid. We help victims of conflict, respond to chronic food shortages, epidemics and natural disasters. Every year Médecins Sans Frontières sends around 3,000 international field workers to work alongside 22,000 national staff in countries around the world. There they work together to bring emergency medical assistance to the people who need it most and may otherwise have no access to even the most basic life-saving health services.

Happy New Year 2011

๐Ÿ’ก The Robot, the Apple and the Coffee Bean

Article

For a change, let’s talk about technologies…
Have you heard about Java? No? Well, even if you don’t know it, you are probably using Java everyday: On your computer, your mobile phone, your TV and more. Action(s) is made with Java, and it is the reason why you can run it indifferently on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.

Apple made recently two big announcements regarding Java:

  • The creation of a Mac App Store where Java applications will not be accepted
  • The end of Apple’s support of Java on Mac OS X

The question that a lot of you have been asking us is: will these announcements impact the existence of Action(s) on the Mac OS platform?
The answer is No. We are still very committed to the Mac OS platform. We do not believe that Java will disappear from Mac OS X and we will continue to provide a high-quality – fully integrated version of Action(s) for Mac users.
