Leaving Detroit

hwms.coverartHow do you make decisions about tech companies – especially tech startups?  It’s not as easy, or as straightforward or as rational as we might like to think.  Over the next 7 episodes, we will look at our long term CTO, Vinny, make decisions about his original startup.  

Vinny is making these decisions under duress, which doesn’t help.  His wife died just as he was starting his company.  No one trusts him to make good decisions.  And he’s not sure that he can make them himself.

  • Vinny the CTO – Geoffrey Grier
  • Curt of SidePocket – Noah Masur

Do Smart Machines Make Sense?

>hwms.coverart

It’s rarely a direct replacement. Rarely do smart machines actually change the workplace as they were intended. It’s always a change to some side occupation, an occupation that you may not connect with smart technology. as

Our series on smart machines and work considers the contributions of John McCarthy, one of the founders of the field of Artificial Intelligence. McCarthy had grand plans for his work. He hoped to build a machine that could do the kind of logical reasoning that Euclid did for geometry. The question is, of course, “Was McCarthy’s work a success?” but the answer is not measured by the parallel query “How many geometers did McCarthy put out of work?”
