Many stories begin with: a long, long time ago… And I’ll start telling this story that way too. A long, long time ago, when there was no Instagram yet, and Google maps led travelers mostly into the middle of a lake, I started working on managerial tools that would complement existing managerial techniques with which managers (knowing them or just applying them intuitively) solve organizational problems.

Artificial manager and feelings. Do you remember the movie AI Artificial Intelligence?
Do you remember the movie called AI Artificial Intelligence, directed by Steven Spielberg?

However, let’s imagine for aContinue reading
My manager is a robot. What will the consequences be? Part 1

Now let’s consider what the consequences of such an invention could be. What would happen if one day you met a humanoid robot in your chair who had just fired your boss?
