How true is it that a big slice of the workforce is about to lose their jobs because of Artificial Intelligence? Probably, not so true, yet.

Andreas Maniatis's insight:
Make no mistake: Automation and artificial intelligence will eliminate some jobs. But companies would be wise to use AI first where their computers already interact. There’s plenty of low-hanging fruit there to keep them busy for years.

Calling B.S. in the Age of Big Data

Calling B.S. in the Age of Big Data | Big Data - Visual Analytics | Scoop.it
The world is awash in bullshit. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. Higher education rewards bullshit over analytic thought. Startup culture elevates bullshit to high art. Advertisers wink conspiratorially and invite us to join them in seeing through all the bullshit — and take advantage of our lowered guard to bombard us with bullshit of the second order. The majority of administrative activity, whether in private business or the public sphere, seems to be little more than a sophisticated exercise in the combinatorial reassembly of bullshit.

We’re sick of it!

It’s time to do something, and as educators, one constructive thing we know how to do is to teach people.
