See on Scoop.itMindfull Decision Making

“…the stakes are rising as the methods and mind-set of data science spread across the economy and society. Big companies and start-ups are beginning to use the technology in decisions like medical diagnosis, crime prevention and loan approvals. The application of data science to such fields raises questions of when close human supervision of an algorithm’s results is needed.”

Philippe Vallat’s insight:

The Laplace’s demon is not dead… Machines can compute and deduce, but certainly not decide – as decision always includes some uncertainty. True is also that some fact finding and calculation can reduce human biases – as long as enough time and quality and availability of the data are given.
