Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

Why Jeff Bezos doesn't believe in work-life balance: 'It actually is a circle'

Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos.Alex Wong/Getty Images Amazon's Jeff Bezos said in 2018 that the term "work-life balance" was a "debilitating phrase."

Why Are Most Firms Still Struggling with Artificial Intelligence?

There’s no question but that artificial intelligence now has a firm footing in strategic decision-making processes in major firms. When I wrote two blogs on big data back in 2015, less than 10% of large firms had adopted AI decision-making. Today, more than 80% of large companies make use of AI. Indeed, major firms are moving far beyond AI process automation into its use to augment decision-making processes at all levels, including top management.
