If we rely on algorithms and technology to make us more efficient, our own skills atrophy. Kevin sits down with Edward Tenner, author of Our Own Devices, Why Things Bite Back, and most recently The Efficiency Paradox: What Big Data Can’t Do. As a historian of sorts, Edward tries to understand where we are today and asks the questions we need to think about the future. In The Efficiency Paradox, Edward looks at our technology boom and the downside of a good thing. Although our access to information and big data leads us to perform at higher and faster levels, can we be sure we are going in the right direction? Edward believes we need to find balance or we might not find the benefits of technology or we lost the benefits of human nature.
In this episode, Edward shares strategies to handle big data and what leaders should think about.
