Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Romi Stein is CEO & cofounder of OpenLegacy , leading its strategic vision of digital-driven integration for legacy systems. In previous blogs, I have touched on automation from different aspects or levels. On the micro level, we have seen that back-of-house activities can, and should, be as automated as possible for various reasons, such as economic efficiencies and compliance. But at the customer-facing side of things, automation should support human activities. On the macro level, combining AI and automated processes can provide startling new abilities and opportunities. Machine learning and neural networks utilizing existing resources and processes are already beginning to make waves (Walle and ChatGPT are just the beginning). There are many ways to look at technological development, most often in three or four stages: invention, innovation and diffusion—or R&D, growth, maturity and decline. … [Read more...] about Automation Is A Strategy, Not (Only) A Means Or An End

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Mateus Hernandes Rodrigues—Director of International Operations at DB1 Global Software . Under development by the Federal Reserve, FedNow is a U.S. instant payment service designed to provide a fast, safe and efficient way for individuals and businesses to conduct real-time financial transactions. Inspired by the Brazilian PIX, in my previous article, Five Lessons From Brazil For Implementing FedNow , I mentioned some preparations that technology companies may have. I will now provide more detailed information on key resources, stakeholders and technical information about the service. Unlike other instant payment methods, such as PayPal, FedNow is being developed and operated by the Federal Reserve rather than a private company. This means that it will be supervised directly by the institution and will be subject to the same regulations and supervision as other payment systems that are operated by it. The … [Read more...] about On The FedNow Service: What To Expect From The First Version

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin From reading the pleadings in cases filed against film companies for allegedly under-reporting participations owed to talent, licensors, or financiers, a pattern emerges of standard complaints that come up repeatedly. In most of the cases, the relevant contracts have pages of fine print that expressly permit the accounting conduct complained of, so one solution is to request adding an overriding rider that deals with the problematic issues when the contract is negotiated. It may be a tough negotiation that will depend on each party's leverage, but "you can't score if you don't shoot." With that background, I offer the following short accounting rider, which is intended to counter all the common complaints of under-reporting participations owed. The Rider Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement or any exhibits thereto, the following provisions shall govern the payment of all contingent amounts owed by … [Read more...] about Hollywood Accounting Rider

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Over the course of the past few months it’s becoming clear to me that venture capitalists investing into climate technologies are now decidedly split into two major camps: Those investing into hardware, or as they often will term it, “deep tech” innovations, and those investing into software. This is an interesting split, and you can see why each camp is doing what they’re doing. The “software” investors have a logical mandate for focusing in on this innovation area: It’s what venture capital has traditionally succeeded at. Venture capital is very expensive capital — I like to joke that it’s the most expensive form of available capital that won’t get your kneecaps broken. So if it’s so costly, it should be deployed only where the business model can absorb such expensive capital and scale quickly enough to achieve big outcomes. In other words, capital efficiency. Invest a little bit, and hopefully get a big outcome. … [Read more...] about “Software” Climate VCs And “Hardtech” Climate VCs Are Both Wrong
Over the past two days, I must have had 20 conversations with people anxious about the impacts of AI on their work and livelihoods. Of course, I might have been seeking out those conversations because, as an academic and contributor to several business publications, I am also anxious! Creators, artists, coaches, programmers, doctors, writers, experts, and thought leaders are grappling with the implications of generative AI such as ChatGPT , DALL-E , and other advanced AI products on their jobs, passions, and income. On the one hand, it may seem like a dream come true. You can benefit from AI helping you work faster. Perhaps, better. On the other hand: So does everyone else and their hamster. Especially since it seems that anyone can look like an expert and creator with the help of AI. It can, after all, write a job application good enough to be short-listed, pass portions of the U.S. medical licensing exam and the bar exam , produce code , text, and sellable art … [Read more...] about Does ChatGPT mean the end of ‘thought leaders’?
