Why aren't the most powerful new technologies being used to solve the world's most important problems: hunger, poverty, conflict, employment, disease? What's missing?
From a pioneer in machine learning and Artificial Intelligence, and a participant in the Human Genome Project, comes a thought-provoking book that answers these questions. In Link: How Decision Intelligence Connects Data, Actions, and Outcomes for a Better World, Dr. Lorien Pratt explores the solution that is emerging worldwide to take Artificial Intelligence to the next level: Decision Intelligence.
Decision Intelligence (DI) connects human decision makers to the most powerful technologies that uncover the meaning that lies within data - often remaining invisible until the DI framework is applied. Throughout Link, Pratt delivers practical examples of how DI can be applied to solve business, financial, and economic problems. Through application of the DI model, and exploration of a variety of scenarios that demonstrate how DI can dramatically change the way problems are considered, data is analysed, and technologies are applied, Pratt gives readers insight on how to design solutions for complexity.
Technology has accelerated beyond our ability to understand or effectively control it. Link brings this technology down to earth and connects it to our more natural ways of thinking. It offers an invaluable roadmap to the future, empowering us all to make practical steps and take the best actions to solve the hardest problems. Link includes stories of decision intelligence pioneers along with examples including government budgeting, emerging democracy conflict resolution, banking, leadership, and much more.
