There is a lot we can learn from Nepal. The very beautiful and sometimes considered mystic country could not have more orthogonal dimensions.

Transcending from the Information Age into the Innovations Age. Looking back: Information is king, information will be omnipresent and widely accessible more or less across the globe.

Looking in our heavily research driven crystal ball, we see the following 15 engineering disciplines the most sought after in the next 25 years.

I see thousands of horror stories and get hundreds of fearful questions like will AI be harmful to humans, will “they” take over the world.

Hyper smart applets In 1996 we were trying to design hyper-smart applets (applets was concept in […]

The post Imperfection Oxymoron appeared first on Axel Schultze.

I see this question popping up over and over again. At present it may look like Autonomous Machines will carry on the technological development and we sit and watch. Well – here is my thinking: In 1980 the end of technology was predicted I remember a day where my boss said “I think with the […]

The post Is AI the last invention humans will do? appeared first on Axel Schultze.
