Conversation starters: Comments from our readers

"Real life is much more complex than financial markets, harder to observe, noisier. Big data will be valuable for limited but important applications like medicine, but predicting a good life match with 87% probability seems a long way off. Society tends to elevate tools to almost-religions. We've done that with free markets and capitalism; let's not do it with big data and algorithms."
Jan-Peter Onstwedder on Yuval Noah Harari on big data, Google and the end of free will



"Not sure they can write 'How' until they have decided what Brexit means (the end state) and herein lies the problem. Ordinarily Government policy can be a fudge but this time it can't as somebody (ie Europe) is going to mark their homework. Good luck with that."
Fisher of Men on Brexit requires more than political will — it must be capable of happening
