Verhalten im Umgang mit Algorithmen

Our paradoxical behaviour in dealing with algorithms

 
Human behaviour towards algorithms, based on the book “Hello World – What algorithms can do and how they change our lives” by Hannah Fry.

The author manages to shed light on the world of algorithms in a very entertaining way and in easy words.
Each chapter starts with an exciting example from the real or fictional world to illustrate algorithms’ aspects or problems.

Why using artificial intelligence in B2B sales is inexorable.

 
Would there be a B2B digital transformation without predictive analytics software?

What comes to mind when you think of Thomas Alva Edison? My first thought is still: The first inventor of the light bulb. And this, although a well-known fact, is not entirely true. He optimized it and thus made it suitable for mass use – but he didn’t invent it.

Similarly, we credit Samuel Morse with having invented the electric telegraph. Morse did indeed independently develop and patented a recording electric telegraph in 1837. However, he was not alone. There were, in fact, five claimants, including the German physician, anatomist, and inventor Samuel Thomas von Sömmering.
