La Tech, Un Milieu Encore Très Masculin

L’idée de faire un bilan sur les femmes dans la tech m’est venue lorsque j’observais les membres du comité consultatif d’un organisme bien connu de conférences, et que sur 13 membres du comité, il n’y avait que deux femmes. Certes, cet organisme invite régulièrement un bon nombre de speakers féminins, mais malgré cela, son comité consultatif est loin d’être représentatif de […]

La cobotique, l’avenir de la collaboration Hommes-robots ?

La cobotique, contraction de robot et collaboratif peut permettre d’améliorer les performances au travail en faisant du robot un quasi-collègue de l’Homme. Les robots sont depuis longtemps idéalisés dans l’art et la culture populaire. De la pièce de science-fiction “Les Robots universels de Rossum” où ils étaient considérés comme une menace pour l’humanité, à Wall-e où ils faisaient preuve de […]

As the managing director of Silverpeak, a London M&A boutique, he’s hired his fair share of […]
