If all you have is a hammer…

… everything looks like a nail.  And if all you have is an algorithm, everything (and everybody) looks like a data set.  I assign limited value to analytics when it comes to things of great importance – like making decisions that directly affect people’s lives and careers.  Wisdom and compassion matter more to me.  I’ve seen what “machine insights” can lead to.  I’ve seen too many people get filtered out of a future where they could have succeeded.  I’d rather invest time understanding people and helping them find a path to success.
