A New Era in AI Has Begun

Lee Sedol had seen all the tricks. He knew all the moves. As one of the world’s best and most experienced players of the complex board game Go, it was difficult to surprise him. But halfway through his first match against AlphaGo, the artificially intelligent player developed by Google DeepMind, Lee was already flabbergasted. AlphaGo…

via Google’s AI won the game Go by defying millennia of basic human instinct — Quartz

If You Want To Know Where Your Heart Is

This is a quote that comes in many shapes. I’ve heard it in my professional carrier as “Where your mind goes, your energy flows”, but I guess this one is a more private one. Anyhow, I think that there is a lot of truth in these simple words.

For Those That Have Almost Nothing At all

The day after New Year Celebrations in Barcelona, I walked around a silent Barcelona, and there was one image that really stayed in my mind.

This man; a few hours after thousands of people have surrounded him, cheering in champagne, launched fire crackers and so on, this man rested against a door. Alone.

He had his open can of olives, his shoes and a bottle of water. I just wondered, how did he end up here? Our world is getting better all the time (yes it is), and I really hope that no one, in a future not so distant will say there wishes for a new year, in conditions like this.

Lake Como – Italy

Two weeks ago I attended an entrepreneur conference in Italy. On my way back I shared a ride with three other entrepreneurs, and we decided to stop for lunch at a beautiful village on the shore of Lake Como. To be perfectly honest, this is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited – ever!

What’s so strange, is that I passed by this place so many times before and never stopped. For everyone passing it, you should! Amazing with those misty mountains on the other side of the lake.

Sara Isaksson / Anders Widmark – To Open Up My Heart

Sara Isaksson has one of Sweden’s most beautiful voices. In this clip she plays Anders Widmark:s (piano) song “To Open Up My Heart”. A great song that may fit well to tomorrow’s Valentines. Modest, honest, upright and touches our hearts, and I guess those words all describe what a healthy relationship is all about.
