Ready, Steady, Go AI
AI is a potential solution to the challenge of turning big phenomics data into insights. Ready, Steady, Go AI is an interactive tutorial for disease classification that has been of significance as the foundation for achieving digital phenomics. It is designed as an open-source, freely available code via virtual lab notebooks to empower not only…
The impact of technology on the human decision-making process
Interesting article available in open access from Human Behavior and Emerging Technologies open access: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/hbe2.257 The significant contribution … is that it analyzes the biases that may arise during the decision-making process as a result of technology adoption.
The most interesting design problem is your life.
This blog is based on “How to use design thinking to create a happier life for yourself“, which combines the great tools and mindset of design thinking for making life choices. At Stanford, Dave Evans and Bill Burnett teach a class called “Designing Your Life,” which led the book Designing Your Life, Designing Your Work Life and a…
Skills in Space
Mind in Motion: How Action Shapes Thought is a great book by Barbara Tversky. In this book, she argues that spatial thinking is the foundation of all thought, including abstract thinking. When there are too many thoughts to hold in mind, we put those thoughts into the world in various ways, and the way we put…
Interesting session on maye one of the biggest challanges modern world is experiencing.
Does the quality of “Smart Information Processing” connect with the Default Mode Network ?
I was triggered by an article in Nature, explaining the atypical connectome hierarchy in ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). ASD is characterized by atypical sensory processing, while and deficits in high-level cognitive and social functions, including impairments in Theory of Mind and predictive abilities. The article points out that ASD might emerge from disturbances in macroscale cortical…
The Information Lens – helping to correct the failure of the Perceptron
In the rich history of information processing, the idea of the preceptron occurred, based on the founding ideas of the artificial neuron (McCulloch and Pitts, 1943). Including the available knowledge of learning, Frank Rosenblatt constructed the perceptron devices, building the first of artificial learning machines, and as such creating the first neural nets in 1957. As referenced in “Calling Bullshit” (Ch. 8, intro),…
AI: Analogy Included ?
There is a great Quanta article on Melanie Mitchell, discussing her effort to include analogy into AI. Some quotes: “Today’s state-of-the-art neural networks are very good at certain tasks, but they’re very bad at taking what they’ve learned in one kind of situation and transferring it to another” — the essence of analogy. “Analogy isn’t…
Biological thinking – BCG
I want to share this BCG article on Biological Thinking, messy management for a complex world. Biological thinking matters for several important reasons: First, in complex adaptive systems, there is no single formula or framework that always works. In fact, the very defiance of formulaic problem solving is what makes CAS management so challenging initially.…
Information Lens – More than IT
The Information Lens principle is showing clear in the economics of recent times. A shift from the current globalized capitalism towards more value-based and stakeholder driven economies is happening slowly. In order to make this happen, the economies have to bring in the insights and information on these stakeholders and values, including a data-economy. “Globalization…
