Driven by efficiency

In my time as a student, I was taught the difference behind the word efficacy and efficiency. At that time efficiency seemed to me to be an objective, today I'm not so sure. Efficiency through digital change has brought us many benefits, at least for those of us who do not at present suffer from large digital gaps, in my case, particularly in the area of management. Last week, though, I've been thinking about artificial intelligence and efficiency, when a member of the Librezale in Education group shared a story: "Nvidia CEO says kids shouldn't learn to program." The idea behind these words is that artificial intelligence has the ability to become a creator in the digital realm, so we no longer need to know how to program, to draw by computer, to edit videos by computer, to know how to write and to read...

I sometimes think I'm too scared of these claims. It is possible that the people behind these kinds of ideas do not seek in the name of comfort the importance of understanding our world and the technologies present, that reduce our possibilities of influence, themselves, the great development technologies, in the way of continuing to add power. It is possible that this time we are not working another Troia Zaldi to enter our lives, that we are not on the path of creating business models that we cannot now imagine, while our lives and our jobs are precarious by causes that we will never understand well. Maybe it's better to think that now I'm going to have new creative possibilities that aren't within my grasp: for example, being able to create an app with a description, an image, a web, a video game -- for the moment, I look at the side, without understanding well what's going on and its benefits and losses.

Large casserole

Unconsciously, the summer solstice comes back. The Sun has reached its peak and heats our hull very well. In many places the rite of fire is celebrated and the Basques also have an ancestral tradition. In the past, the stake of San Juan was made at the ends of the mountains, but... [+]

Hot potato that Urkullu gives to Pradales

The idea of this article emerged when on 24 November lehendakari Urkullu leaked that he would not be a candidate and, consequently, it was found that he would go after twelve years in office without significant gestures with the victims of the State.

However, in order not to be... [+]

Not suitable

In a one-hour commute to the workplace, I am accompanied by the car radio. On yesterday's journey, I had the opportunity to enjoy a short story program, as the last port of the road, full of curves, began in Karrantza. Short legends, yes, of few words, but stories of great... [+]


Asturias-Veleia, 18 years ago

In June 18 years ago we started to get to know the paintings of Iruña Veleia. Good news for the Basques.

But the current situation is not so satisfactory. On the one hand, the Provincial Council of Álava (DFA) says that all graphites are false, and that those who think... [+]


They're also our children.

Parents' mornings are crazy! Wake up the children, give a breakfast, dress up... to get to school on time. These are our day-to-day concerns as parents. At 3,500 kilometres from our country, the responsibilities of the Palestinian parents are very different: whether they are... [+]
