A Personal Message by Christian Liebich

I finished the year 2017 with a personal message, also providing an outlook for 2018.

I am recovering from one of the most difficult times in my personal life, as after getting sick in 2015 I had plenty of time during the last 2 years to research and overthink what I want to do during the time to come.

 

After 12 years of focusing on production and finally finishing the documentary THE BLACK ROOTS OF SALSA in mid-2016 the drastic global changes stroke me hard when watching out for business solutions as the world has changed.

What would it take to demystify chaos and the order of the universe?

Let’s get down to this delicate question, discussing Artificial Super Intelligence.

As far as I understand, there are quite different opinions mentioned lately by the main protagonists in the field. The huge progression in the field of Artificial Intelligence is shaking up the developers as they digitalization to see possibilities and limitations of this new technology.

The hype in the field of Artificial Intelligence is reasonable as there are lots of possibilities for a possible last step in digitalization.

Questions about Artificial Super Intelligence are of a philosophic kind and not reality in any way!

Google makes Artificial Intelligence accessible to everybody!

There are 3 different fields of interaction with Artificial Intelligence currently.

Using tools driven by Artificial Intelligence and Deep Machine Learning as a consumer.

We are already surrounded by things, using some parts of Artificial Intelligence and there will be so many more to come! On Apple you have Siri, but in MacOS High Sierra there will be optimization on a Hardware level. Google uses AI for its search and its assistant, Facebook is loaded with Artificial Intelligence. Image recognition, translation, scanning of documents … It is so much going on in this sector, where we are presented the next generation devices and possibilities.

I propose to use as much of all kinds of these new gadgets to get a feeling about how it all works! Read more

Why Was The Importance Of Connections And Big Data Underestimated?

As a filmmaker, I respect Steven Spielberg a lot but watching his movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence from 2001, knowing about the progress in A.I. currently might be an indication about actual prognoses.

The film is actually very well done, touchy and a very important subject get addressed in a time when robots have been seen as machines, built as a mechanical copy of the human being.

Is Artificial Intelligence A Threat?

When studying physics at the University of Zürich from 1999 – 2002 I also attended lectures about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Philosophy.

Then, computer power was still far from mastering the necessary calculations. First of all, there had to be made decisions about WHAT exactly is Artificial Intelligence, even if it is around since 1954.

Years later, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence advanced at a crazy speed and even some of the highest barriers have been cracked lately.

Artificial Intelligence has become part of the weapons big players use to broaden their empire. Lots of investments are being made and systems are learning at a stunning speed.

What is the Power of Email Lists?

Email lists are the modern way to build a community of trusted people and clients in the digital economy. They are often misused to send pitches and offers to people.

 

Use the power of email lists for good!

Be aware of the value you can provide by sending your views about the world and ethics to your audience!

If you have something to say if you have values you care about, shame on you if you don’t share them with the world! 

Your word counts! Don’t blame others and politicians if they don’t defend your values. Nobody will know about them if you don’t tell the world what you think, feel and stand for!

 

Email lists are no SPAM!

I lived through the epoch when everybody started sending SPAM emails to any email address found, published online.
The problem still exists and there are still some stupid people trying to cheat, trick and offend!

But … fortunately, most of these emails are caught in SPAM filtering through modern email servers!
The rest can be identified quite easy. There is just one action allowed on these emails – DELETE!

Don’t confuse email lists with SPAM!

Emails from email lists are normally sent to you because you actively subscribed to an email list of a certain topic.
Sometimes you get on a list, you did not actively subscribe. If you scroll to the end of the email you find a link to unsubscribe and nowadays this works quite well!

Don’t Reinvent The Wheel – Use It!

Not just the wheel is invented to let us drive smoothly in cars, trains, bicycles, … there is no need to reinvent the wheel!

The same is valid for the digital tools to set up nearly any business in a digital environment!

When I started programming in 1999, a lot of the work was matching words, so-called “Strings”. I had to cut them into pieces and publish these pieces to the Intranet with HTML. I learned great concepts of programming but at the time technologies have all been in a state, where troubleshooting involved more work time than getting results.

Since then the world really changed and we are living in an age of incredible possibilities.

But … YOU need to know how to use the wheel!
