“Everything that you see in intelligent technology is some mathematical model of some reality. And it’s always going to be less comprehensive than the reality itself.” 
“What happens today is you put data into the machine or the machine collects data in some way, and what comes out is that data filtered through a data model. Right. And so the data model is the machine’s opinion and like all opinions, You need more than one of them to make a decision, you can’t trust a machine to have the right opinion. You can’t, you shouldn’t. It’s a bad idea. We’re at a stage where having really good questions is way better than having answers. And that’s a change in management. It’s a change in the way that we think about work.” John Sumser
