Why the Concept of “Citizen Data Scientist” Terrifies Me

Imagine this scenario:You enter your dentist’s office as a follow-up visit to the 6-month checkup you had last week. You’re nervous because the checkup revealed bleeding in your gums and cracks in your fillings, all things that require your dentist’s repair on this occasion.So, you’re there nervously fidgeting in the lobby waiting for your name to be called, envisioning all sorts of dentistry implements of torture that will soon be inside your mouth. Finally, when your name is called, you’re…See More

2020 Challenge: Unlearn to Change Your Frame

Maybe the biggest challenge we face as a society is our ability to unlearn – to let go of – outdated concepts and beliefs in order to adopt new approaches. Our everyday lives are dominated by outdated concepts: change the oil every 3,000 miles, don’t wear white before Memorial Day, only senior management has the best ideas, don’t eat dessert until you’ve cleaned your plate, trade wars are easy to win, leeches work wonders on headaches, etc.Well, I’m going to throw down the gauntlet and…See More

"Thanks for sharing Andrew.  I think that makes total sense. I also think that in order to build AI that really serves humans (versus imprisons us), we need to consider a more holistic AI Ultility Function.  The creation of that AI Utility…"

"Quite interesting perspective. I've held the opinion for some time that the development of AGI frees humanity to focus on: creativity spirituality philosophy self-realization"

Will AI Force Humans to Become More Human?

Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) create an environment where design thinking skills are more valuable than data science skills? Will AI alter how we define human intelligence? Will AI actually force humans to become more human?Okay, sounds questions one might expect from an episode of Rod Serling’s TV series “Twilight Zone” (which I preferred over the meaningless college football bowl games on New Year’s Day).  Instead of AI replacing…See More

AI Ethics Challenge: Understanding Passive versus Proactive Ethics

Several of my friends have challenged me to get involved in the AI ethics discussion. I certainly do not have any special ethics training. But then again, maybe I do. I’ve been going to church most Sundays (and not just on Christmas Eve) since I was a kid and have been taught a multitude of “ethics” lessons from the Bible. So, respectively, let me take my best shot at sharing my thoughts about the critical importance of the AI Ethics topic.What is AI Ethics?Ethics is defined as the moral…See More

Schmarzo’s Favorite 10 Infographic Blogs for 2019

Posted on January 2, 2020 at 5:30am 0 Comments

2019 was a year full of outstanding customer engagements and provocative teaching experiences across numerous universities.  My eyes were opened to many new opportunities to integrate economics, design thinking, big data and data science (AI / ML / DL) to further my case for a Nobel Prize in Economics (which I’d prefer not to be awarded posthumously).  That includes helping organizations:
