Web Summit 2023 Lisbon: Key Findings

This year, I marked my second participation in the Web Summit and my first in-person experience. My initial encounter in 2020 was virtual. Being there physically offered a distinctly different experience. The Scale of the Event The event’s magnitude was astounding, with over 70,000 attendees, 2,600 startups, 900 investors, and representatives of 30 countries. In Lisbon, every corner buzzed with Web Summit participants. For comparison, I grew up in a city with fewer than 60,000 residents. AI Adoption: The Central Theme Unsurprisingly, AI was the focal point. Discussions covered implementation areas like marketing, healthcare, retail, gaming, sustainability and more; challenges [...]

🔍 Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Tech Trends for 2024: Unpacking the Power of AI 🤖

Intrigued about what’s on the horizon in the tech world? Gartner has just released its highly anticipated list of the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2024, and Artificial Intelligence is notably at the forefront. With AI-centric trends claiming 4 of the 10 spots, let's take a deeper dive into each trend's impact and potential for transformative change. 📌 AI-Driven Trends Democratized Generative AI: Gartner projects that by 2026, more than 80% of enterprises will have incorporated GenAI APIs, models, or deployed GenAI-driven applications in production environments. This represents a substantial uptick from the less than 5% using it in [...]

How do benchmark quantum computing solutions?

I hear this type of question often when I am talking about quantum computing. It is fascinating because the approach to the answer is not apparent. In most cases, it depends on the customer’s situation — its challenges, needs and goals. The same question can be heard during conferences. There are some tries of providing the results during sessions. I saw many times comparison to the classical approach. The tricky part was that in the discussion came out that it was a brute-force approach. It is not something you would like to see because this is not a state-of-art approach [...]

How do you prioritize emerging technologies that should be on-boarded to your organisation?

This text summarises the discussion with Radosław Taraszka about tracking and onboarding new technologies to organisations. He inspired me to summarise my approach in one post. What are the most crucial characteristics of emerging technology you want to onboard to your organisations? It is simple. It needs to deliver value to the organisation. When verifying it, you need to remember about your organisation’s environment. As an example, let’s use blockchain. It offers enormous potential, but finding a good place to adopt this technology in all organisations is difficult. It also needs to find an opportune moment. When I was working [...]

Chrome 116 and the Kyber Connection: A New Era of Quantum-Safe Browsing

In mid-August, something fascinating unfolded with Chrome, and it's something most of us probably overlook - the application change log, especially when it's related to a web browser like Chrome. With the installation of Chrome 116 on your machine, you'll now be tapping into the world of quantum technology 🧩, specifically quantum-resistant cryptography. Google is steadfastly advancing its strategy to protect data against potential attacks by quantum computers. Version 116 has added support for X25519Kyber768, a mechanism that establishes symmetric secrets. It's a hybrid blend of X25519, a widely-used elliptic curve algorithm in TLS today, and Kyber-768, a quantum-resistant Key [...]

Building energy security with quantum computing

The year 2022 was very challenging for the global energy market. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its long-term consequences affected households, businesses and entire economies. Everyone can see and feel the rising costs of electricity generation and fuel. The German electricity grid, where Russian gas flow has stopped, is a great example of a strongly affected area. New, more eco-friendly ways of producing energy and heat, along with the faster adoption of electric vehicles, caused the risk of power grid overload and local power cuts. The mentioned situation happened in southern Germany this month. Similar problems might soon occur in [...]

FinOps: Saving 7k EUR/month by 5 minutes action

When I am teaching about the cloud and especially when I am showing cost optimization, I am presenting an example of Troy Hunt Have I Been Pwned cost saving case. Troy by using Cloudflare as a caching solution and moving traffic outside of Azure, managed to reduce the cost of infrastructure below 1 USD per month. At the end of 2018, when he was describing this case, his page was supporting  141M monthly queries of 517M records. This is a brilliant example of how you should work with your cloud solutions.

Ask Me Anything with Scott Hanselman

This time I am sharing a video that has been recorded with Scott Hanselman. Together with Piotr Rogala we conducted an ask me anything session with Scott. I believe that there is no need to introduce Scott to anybody. Just grab a coffee and a nice watching.
