Un nouveau départ

Alors, je suis ici. Un nouveau départ. J’ai eu quelques nouveaux départs sur ce site au fil des ans.

Mais, celui-ci est différent. Cette fois, je vais essayer d’ecrire en français tous les nuits. Ou du moins, plusieurs nuits.

Est-ce que ce sera parfait. Non. Pas du tout. Mais, j’espère que penser en français, même un tous les soirs améliorera considérablement mon français - même si je dois garder Google à proximité pour ma traduction.

Comme mon blog habituel, il n’y aura pas de grandes histoires, juste ma vie de tous les jours - un résumé de ce que je pense ce jour-là.

Bon voyage!

Mini Q2 review

What distinguishes you from other developers?

I've built data pipelines across 3 continents at petabyte scales, for over 15 years. But the data doesn't matter if we don't solve the human problems first - an AI solution that nobody uses is worthless.

Are the robots going to kill us all?

Not any time soon. At least not in the way that you've got imagined thanks to the Terminator movies. Sure somebody with a DARPA grant is always going to strap a knife/gun/flamethrower on the side of a robot - but just like in Dr.Who - right now, that robot will struggle to even get out of the room, let alone up some stairs.

But AI is going to steal my job, right?

A year ago, the whole world was convinced that AI was going to steal their job. Now, the reality is that most people are thinking 'I wish this POC at work would go a bit faster to scan these PDFs'.

When am I going to get my self-driving car?

Humans are complicated. If we invented driving today - there's NO WAY IN HELL we'd let humans do it. They get distracted. They text their friends. They drink. They make mistakes. But the reality is, all of our streets, cities (and even legal systems) have been built around these limitations. It would be surprisingly easy to build self-driving cars if there were no humans on the road. But today no one wants to take liability. If a self-driving company kills someone, who's responsible? The manufacturer? The insurance company? The software developer?
