One of the things I most enjoyed during my stay at NDU was learning about futurists and forecasting. This knowledge has not offset my sense of impending doom. But it’s given me more things to read.
My Feedspot take on Monday included this post about diversity of perspective (as contrasted to diversity defined along the seven axes of federal discrimination law). Did author correctly note the biases of Artificial General Intelligence along the way? Yes. Is author white and male? I’m going to have to assume yes. I’m sure there are a couple of big companies in this field that are doing good recruitment along the seven axes, but call me when their leadership and retention stats match their recruitment numbers. Til then we got ourselves a false dichotomy.
