In brief

  • Like the UK, Sweden or Germany, European countries have greater difficulties in attracting and hiring skilled workers. The European tech industry is seeing rapid growth and, as a result, is experiencing a skills shortage.
  • The talent market is global. Many European tech startups will compete for the best talents.
  • Startups can prevent talent shortage using smart hiring by upskilling and reskilling an in-house talent team and hiring across borders.

Talent Shortage

As Europe continues to recover from a prolonged and expensive economic crisis, four out…

In recent months, interest in NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and Crypto Art grew exponentially. (If you don’t know what is an NFT, here is a little guide for beginners.)

Because of the exorbitant value of some works, the art market is generally inaccessible to ordinary people. What if you could only buy a portion of it and share the property with others? It is possible, it is tokenization.

Tokenization is the process of creating a non-fungible token in blockchains that represents an underlying asset and its value. Tokenization could revolutionize many creative disciplines, including the art industry.

So, why tokenize art…

  • The idea of Micro Frontends is to subdivide a big application into tiny parts. Those parts become individual applications.
  • Experiment Micro Frontends is more about team organization and business domain architecture than technology.
  • A very simple example of a configuration with Angular and Webpack Module Federation shows us how Micro Frontends extends existing possibilities and gives more flexibility to product teams.

Before the pandemic, we were already immersed in an unstoppable change process. The arrival of Covid-19 in our lives has initiated or accelerated a process of transformation. Many changes are not only at the technological level but also in the way we work and interact from within organizations. This paradigm shift has had a direct impact on people in all organizations.

Here, my three precious lessons from 2020.

Lesson #1 — We Must Learn To Live With Uncertainty

2021 will be dominated by uncertainty and we must learn to live with uncertainty. However, our civilization has instilled in us the need for ever more certainties about the future. It’s only…

That’s it. Tesla is now part of the S&P 500 index, achieving the status of a safe bet and representing one of the first weightings of this prestigious index, whose members include Apple or Amazon.

Many financial analysts have long been skeptical of Tesla’s valuation. Elon Musk himself tweets, in May, the stock price is too high.

But it looks like the pandemic has not had an effect on Tesla which signs a very convincing third quarter. The stock price is only going up. So what’s happen? What can we find in the leader of the electric car?

Market Value

Why is…

What would we do today without a watch or a clock? Time pace our lives: train times, meeting times, cooking time…

The history of watchmaking is not only discoveries and inventions. It is the history of the men who built it, step by step, according to the design of new engineering mechanisms and the development of new marketing methods.

In his book Longitude: The true story of a lone genius who solved the greatest scientific problem of his time, Dana Sobel tells the story of John Harrison, the inventor of the marine chronometer, who solved one of the great scientific…


Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are becoming increasingly incorporated into our life. There is still exist a predominance of a certain mistrust of AI technologies, especially in data privacy and security.

Most data scientists agree that all AI technologies have an inherent bias and risks, and this should not be the sole reason to avoid AI. In a previous post, we have already talked about the interesting questions opened up by AI technologies like GPT-3.

However, AI technologies have advanced to a degree that enables tailored communications into Web applications, and users are increasingly feeling very comfortable with businesses using AI…

Why Neuralink is an option to replace smartphones? As for the future, I have no idea. Nobody knows what is going to happen. However, I think there are some things we can predict without being too wrong as the technology will keep evolving and new technologies will emerge.

Looking at the past, we wonder if there were any major changes. And one thing that comes to mind: the smartphones. These devices have changed a lot of things in people’s lives and it has become an essential part of their daily life. Smartphones have changed the way people communicate and socialize…

30-Second Summary

  • GPT-3 will not be limited by its size and its cost will probably decrease quickly over time. The problem of energy consumption remains a challenge for researchers.
  • GPT-3 has been quick to impress us, it was also quick to demonstrate algorithmic biases. It seeming to jump over Turing Test-style hurdles but it does not understand the why. It makes simple errors no human would ever make.
  • The next generations of AI will be able to take over all analytical and repetitive tasks but they…

30-Second Summary

  • It seems to me that simply explaining the principles of Machine Learning, inspired by the brain and which seduces a little more every day by its extraordinary capacities, makes it possible to maintain a critical eye on this astonishing technology.
  • GPT-3 is trained with all data from the Internet. GPT-3 is an unsupervised learning algorithm using Generative Adversarial Network (GAN).
  • The brain has an incredible architecture…
