Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 19, 6:28 AM

Machines aren’t used because they perform some tasks that much better than humans, but because, in many cases, they do a “good enough” job while also being cheaper, more predictable and easier to control than quirky, pesky humans. Technology in the workplace is as much about power and control as it is about productivity and efficiency.

Congestion in the bathtub

This paper presents a model of urban traffic congestion that allows for hypercongestion. Hypercongestion has fundamental importance for the costs of congestion and the effect of policies such as road pricing, transit provision and traffic management, treated in the paper. In the simplest version of the model, the unregulated Nash equilibrium is also the social optimum among a wide range of potential outcomes and any reasonable road pricing scheme will be welfare decreasing. Large welfare gains can be achieved through road pricing when there is hypercongestion and travelers are heterogeneous.

The alchemy of turning data to gold

We have been told that our data is a gold mine, and many have invested accordingly. – And still, many executives feel empty-handed (and empty-pocketed as well). But why?Well, it shouldn’t come as a surprise as man throughout history has coveted the ability to turn things into gold – the Midas touch. Medieval alchemists were convinced they could turn lead into gold. Even in modern times there are examples of serious believers (such as the German leadership during WWII which seriously tried to turn sand into gold).Today’s business alchemy challenge is the ability to turn

In this post I outline the five essential skills any data scientist needs. The post was first published in my column for Data Science Central. In one of my previous posts, I explained the difference between what I consider the two core types of data scientist – strategic and operational.Broadly speaking, they require many of the same skillsets – but the distribution of your expertise and experience within these skillsets will vary, depending on whether your role is more strategic, or operational

From Looking Digital to Being Digital: The Impact of Technology on the Future of Work

Companies are finding it challenging to capture the full value of revolutionary breakthroughs in digital technology. Many have used digital technology to drive down costs and become more efficient, which is akin to “looking digital,” an important but surface-level change. Some, however, are taking things further and transforming data into new revenue and new sources of value.

To move from looking digital to being digital, companies must engage in a deep shift in the way they do business. For business leaders, that shift requires as much attention to culture and organization as it does to the technology itself.
