Why I Tech
I wouldn’t say, that I generally love tech. Sometimes I even hate it 😉 I love technology when it serves human needs, when it adjusts to our behavior, when it’s seamless and frictionless.
But whether or not I love tech – it definitely fascinates me. Especially the current exponential growth and the fact, that science fiction that fascinated me as a kid is becoming real.
My personal tech/IT-trend 2017
It definitely is machine learning. I don’t want to say AI, because we’re still quite far away from general AI or superintelligence, what we have now is machine learning or weak AI. Within this field I’m very much looking forward to autonomous vehicles – especially as I still don’t have a driving licence 😉
