Want to understand what artificial intelligence and machine learning is?

If you want a better understanding of artificial intelligence or if you want to gain some insight into the future of machine learning, I recommend these two free reports, found here: Free AI Reports from  O’Reilly Media. There’s so much hype and speculation about AI: these reports cut through all that noise and they will give you a better understanding of what A.I. really is and where it is going.

P.S. If you like them, check out the many great non-A.I. related reports as well. You don’t have to be a technologist to be able to read them.

Why you should not use Uber? Let’s count the ways.

Uber seems in a hurry to demonstrate as many ways as possible on how to be a toxic company, from exploitng drivers to  degrading women to ripping off passengers, and more. Mike Loukides lists at least eight here is this piece: Uber is breaking bad over at O’Reilly Radar.

The idea behind Uber is worthwhile. Try and support better companies that provide such services, like Lyft. And be on the lookout for more such companies that sense an opportunity and try and be a good business for their customers and their investors.
