Sap cloud business head quits after 27 years in latest top departure
Software company Sap said the head of its cloud business group had quit, the latest in a string of top departures as Europe’s most valuable technology company reshapes its operations. Robert Enslin, who joined SAP in 1992 and had served on its board since 2014, had been tipped by some as a potential successor to Chief Executive Bill McDermott but has departed to take an unspecified opportunity elsewhere. During his two-year tenure as head of the cloud business group, Enslin helped build out Sap’s cloud portfolio, including its $8 billion deal last year to buy Qualtrics, which specialises in tracking online sentiment. SAP did not say if he was getting any sort of payoff. (Fonte: Reuters)

Hyundai Motor denies tie-up with Tencent on driverless car software
South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Co on Sunday denied a report that it had signed a preliminary deal with Chinese technology firm Tencent Holdings to develop software for driverless vehicles. Hyundai’s comments come a day after South Korea’s Maeil Business Newspaper cited unnamed industry sources on Saturday saying that the two companies planned to conduct joint research and development on safety and security systems for self-driving cars, which Hyundai seeks to roll out commercially by 2030. Both companies had not offered any immediate comments on Saturday. (Fonte: Reuters)

Google scioglie la task force di esperti per vigilare sull’etica dell’Ai
Non è certo un buon segno. Google ha ammesso di avere sciolto il comitato indipendente di filosofi, ingegneri ed esperti di politica creato per studiare i problemi etici legati allo sviluppo dell’Intelligenza artificiale. L’Advanced Advisory Council (Ateac), all’interno del quale c’erano anche due italiani Alessandro Acquisti, docente di Information technology all’Heinz College della Carnagie Mellon University, e Luciano Floridi, professore di filosofia ed etica dell’informazione all’Università di Oxford non ha superato le due settimane di vita. Nei giorni scorsi prima le proteste di alcuni membri e poi una petizione aveva chiesto di rimuovere dal comitato la ultraconservatrice Kay Coles James con l’accusa di omofobia. Come ha dichiarato un portavoce di Google alla rivista The Verge : «È diventato chiaro che in questo contesto, Ateac non può funzionare come volevamo». (Fonte: Il Sole 24 Ore)
