Perspectives on Knowledge

David Weinberger

David Weinberger

How the Internet is changing knowledge, society, relationships and communication.

Perspective on knowledge: Without a doubt

Given that the future is deeply uncertain, from the tiniest of decisions to the largest, we should love carefully calculated probabilities, for they are the way we deal with a world that has no interest in conforming to our projections or desires. They let us rationally prepare for things not going our way. Any strategist or planner worth her salt is getting as good a read as she can on the nature and magnitude of what she cannot predict.Read More >>

Perspective on knowledge: When knowledge isn’t enough

If knowledge is a tool intended to enable us to make decisions that are more likely to protect us and advance our shared interests, then it is clear that knowledge can fail us. Each domain has at least informal rules about what counts as evidence.Read More >>

Perspective on knowledge: Computers, Internet, AI

If the early computers reinforced the existing world-view, the Internet upended worldview after worldview. We learned that control doesn't scale: If you want to build something really, really big, you have to get rid of the centralized management functions. We learned that customers joined in conversational networks know more about a business' products than the business does. We learned what a democracy is like when everyone truly has a voice, even when those voices are telling lies and tearing down democratic institutions. Read More >>

Over the last two decades, technology has done the same for the insurance industry. We've seen high-tech innovations enable customers to self-serve in new ways, from getting quotes to filing claims and managing their policies—all online. But it doesn't end there. January 10, 2019

Building Smarter Robots: New Era Combines Content Intelligence and RPA

Robotic process automation (RPA) has gained significant momentum this year.
