Readings

Here is some of what I have been reading since December 6th:

  • Trials and Errors: Why Science Is Failing Us
    "searching for correlations is a terrible way of dealing with the primary subject of much modern research: those complex networks at the center of life. While correlations help us track the relationship between independent measurements, such as the link between smoking and cancer, they are much less effective at making sense of systems in which the variables cannot be isolated."
  • To Know, but Not Understand: Science and Big Data
    "the massive amounts of data necessary to deal with complex phenomena exceed any single brain's ability to grasp, yet networked science rolls on"
  • SpeakerFile
    Great Toronto-based startup: "Speakerfile is the better way for keynote speakers & public speakers to find speaking engagements."
