Build an algorithm development pipeline

Algorithms are fundamental to modern innovation. The very phrase “new technology for X…”, found often in technology and science reporting, often refers to a small or large piece of code that brings to life an algorithm to achieve a certain, often obscured, goal. This innovation creates competition between established technology…

And why many startups can’t innovate at the cutting-edge

Some of the very well-acknowledged authorities on start-ups, and business in general, have a normative view on the gulf between the two types of engineering leadership that a team at an innovation start-up requires.
