I still have a very vague memory of the world before the internet. What I do remember very well was, as a teenager, being often told off for spending too much time in front of the computer — I needed to go out to the real world! This distinction between…


I learned about Daniel Kahneman’s new book from a colleague just a few days before its release, I read the synopsis and pre-ordered immediately. “Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment” came out mid-May 2021. This is not a review, but only my reaction in response to the authors’ central thesis…


As vaccination programmes continue around the world, I reflected on the role that information systems play in the speedy and orderly rollout. Of course, there are glitches and errors, but when was the last time you saw a piece of software deployed in just a few months with little or…


I know that compared to most parts of the world, I’m in a very privileged place: I can walk into a restaurant, sit down, be served a meal, and then even walk into a shop with non-essentials. I didn’t jump at the opportunity right away, I hesitated for more than…

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been putting together some lectures and teaching materials touching, in one way or another, on digital transformation. Little wonder, of course, as this is one of the hottest topics for management students and practitioners right now. …


After 11 weeks of lectures and labs, 3 weeks working on training my own neural network, 5 days of an intensive study bootcamp and 1 exam, I can finally reflect on what I’ve learned from machine learning. That is, apart from all these loss functions, gradient descents, neuron activations and…


I’m one of those people whose reaction to the pandemic shock was not to frantically scroll through social media feeds and news websites but quite the opposite — to abandon them. Admittedly, at that time I didn’t think that lockdown was going to last longer than 3, maximum 6 weeks…
