Daily Thoughts 10/29/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading Prediction Machines The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence by Ajay Agrawal, Joshua Gans, and Avi Goldfarb.  I read about the struggle between privacy and collecting lots of data on people.  The more data that is collected, the more efficient a prediction machine becomes.  Thus places like China which collect massive amounts of data on people gain an advantage in building artificial intelligence.  This book has lots of strategy on how to use artificial intelligence and gain a competitive advantage in business.  At the same time it is a practical book on how artificial intelligence is being developed.

I placed a hold on the book, Stop Workplace Drama by Marlene Chism and the digital audiobook on RB Digital No Drama Leadership.
