How can we dream so big in some areas, yet continue to think so small in others?
I asked myself this recently while at a conference in California. A panel of speakers shared some of the latest developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence - applications such as biometric recognition and autonomous vehicles. During the Q&A time, I posed the question, “Do you know of any applications of data analytics that are focused on better understanding and measuring well-being?” This group had not -- and one of the panelist’s answers could be paraphrased as “Gosh, that would be hard.” (Me, I thought programming computers to make them sentient sounded a little harder - but, what do I know?)
