058 – Why You Should NOT Eat Like a 6-year-old

“Things that can be automated, should be automated.” That’s Sinequa’s philosophy as described by Scott Parker, director of product marketing. Sinequa specializes in “information-driven” data, as opposed to “data driven.”

It’s the difference, Parker tells ActualTech Media’s James Green, behind Warren Buffet’s famous quote that he “eats like a 6-year-old” because he saw data that showed that those children have the lowest death rate.

In other words, making your data useful is all about context. Information-driven data is supplied with context to make better decisions, and it’s done in an automated fashion rather than a wasteful manual fashion. What does that mean? Parker lays it all out in this edition of “10 on Tech.”

  • An exploration of the “cognitive burden” for companies

  • The benefits—and limitations—of artificial intelligence
