Data is Not Reality

Data is Not Reality

  • We see organizations and the engineers who work in them steering towards big data, so it is commonly assumed that data means acumen and direction.
  • Any Data, by itself, does not bring clarity. Data is just information, not reality. It does not represent anything in the field of actuality.
  • Data is also, never complete. Getting more and more Data does not equate to getting more clarity.

Questioning basic assumptions and your own perception can lead to new potentialities. Human beings can think out-of-the-box, can question creatively, something that machines cannot, yet.
Play, experimentation and the ability to unlock new possibilities are also things only humans are capable of.

Inclusive Thinking

Inclusive and holistic thinking is a hallmark of human beings, something that machines cannot accomplish yet, as they cannot process information beyond the data available.

Diversity and inclusiveness in our solutions and decisions are the components of what makes the difference between human beings and data-based decisions.
