What will future jobs look like?

A very interesting talk from economist Andrew McAfee on how jobs will change in the future. Yes, droids will take our jobs -- or at least the kinds of jobs we know now. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them.

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

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 πŸ€– Skynet taking over the world πŸ˜‰ 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.

Every year Médecins Sans Frontières sends around 3,000 international field workers to work alongside 22,000 national staff in countries around the world.

2010 is almost over... Get ready as 2011 will be the year of Action(s). For a starter, a brand new version of Action(s) will be available in the first weeks of the year with new features and new actions.

πŸ’‘ The Robot, the Apple and the Coffee Bean


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.
