And our Quote of the day:
“…advanced analytics, machine learning and AI are arguably the most powerful general-purpose technologies invented since the advent of modern computing. Extracting value from these is an imperative for business and society. It requires a deeper understanding and self-reflection among leaders of human strengths and frailties in contrast to that of modern, software based, machines and algorithms. Clarity in this area will allow us to design tasks, occupations, jobs, processes and business models that combine human intelligence and machine intelligence in the best possible way.”
