Diapason Consulting


Entrepreneurs, it is never too early to integrate good design and development practices, quality management and ethics&regulatory considerations in your global strategy. It does not mean you need a certified QMS this week and a TGA registration tomorrow. You may not even need them at all if your product is not regulated. But now is the right time to understand whether you are regulated, and if so, what is the scope of these regulations. It is also the right time to design the next steps of your development and growth in a way that give investors confidence that you are on top of your strategy. Plan and manage not only the technical steps of your value proposition development - but also plan for your commercial, clinical and regulatory pathways

Creative May

on May 3, 2023

Diapason creative - May 2023 The generative and creative AI explosion is here to stay. The prompt to image hype of mid 2022, driven by the likes of Midjourney, was not just a hype after all. It was a first step in a bullet-train race which reached the conversational AI station in late 2022. Now the train has split into a set of gigantic pinball multiballs, causing havoc across all industries.

Welcome to the machine

on April 22, 2023

Welcome to the machine. “Knock - Knock” “Who’s there?” “Me, a human” “Welcome human. What’s your prompt? Think carefully - the few words you say will determine your fate”. I stumbled the other day on promptperfect, a SaaS website that offers to optimize one’s prompt, taking into account the specifics of the various models that could be used.
