Op-Ed: Can A.I. perform Extreme Personalization customer service? Maybe

Sydney - If “Extreme Personalization” sounds like the most offensive, riskiest buzz phrase ever, you’ll be pleased to know it comes with a tonnage of management science crap, too. The new idea is to make A.I. effective with customers, but…?

Op-Ed: Curing patients not good for business — Goldman Sachs

New York City - The company famous for its social sensitivity has decided that curing sick people simply reduces profits. Goldman Sachs, with a degree of insensitivity or perhaps just more grovelling to the rich, has come up with reasons for people to stay sick.

Op-Ed: China building bases in Pacific nations

Sydney - China is discussing building a military base with the government of Vanuatu. This is seen as a further move by China to expand its global and regional projection of power. The question is exactly where this strategy is going.

Op-Ed: Cometh the Deluge — China hits back with trade tariffs

Sydney - In the most predictable move in modern economic history, China has retaliated with tariffs on 128 American imports, notably food products. This is the least rational trade war since the Depression, which was also caused by tariffs.

Fighting e-waste with Dell corporate savvy and art Special

Mckinney - A mix of Dell’s international e-waste recycling and the very expert Benjamin Von Wong’s artistic skills can make a big point about a big issue. E-waste is one of the big new plagues in the environment, and it MUST be managed well.

Op-Ed: Reinventing the Internet— Regulate, modernize, or both?

Sydney - People are fed up with an internet which is as much a risk as an asset. Nor is online business so great for revenue or risks. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the guy who invented the internet, wants regulation. That may not be enough.

Blockchain grows up: White Rabbit monetizes film rights cash flow Special

Los Angeles - This IS huge, and it’s happening now. Blockchain is entering real commerce, in a big way. A company called White Rabbit has a browser plug-in using blockchain to monetize film streaming rights and deliver viable cash flow.

MakerBot: The catalyst for super-innovation in education Special

Brooklyn - It’s not often you see something which can totally revolutionize education, but MakerBot is it. MakerBot is a suite of skills, using 3D printing, CAD, and other essentials. This is the digital transformation which will transform the world.

Op-Ed: Blockchain to replace Netflix and Old Media? It’s on its way

Sydney - Consider thousands or millions/billions of computers acting as broadcasters. Exit Big Entertainment, Netflix, and maybe even exterminate the appalling slop claiming to be entertainment? It can happen.

Op-Ed: Can AI deal with climate change AND human stupidity?

Sydney - It’s official; predicting the weather is now very difficult, thanks to climate change. The weird jet streams, heat, floods and droughts are hitting hard, and knowing what happens next is crucial.

Op-Ed: AI vs business models — Guess who’s winning

Sydney - The typical perceptions of AI, like any new tech, are now biting, hard, at business models. Also typical is the fact that this demonized new tech isn’t behaving as the negatives suggest, nor exactly as the evangelists describe.

Op-Ed: Blockchain looking dumb after $400 million ‘disappears’

Tokyo - It’s exactly what blockchain is supposed to prevent; $400 million in an obscure cryptocurrency called NEM simply vanished. The exchange is baffled, and the blockchain myth of transparency has taken a serious kick in the teeth.

Op-Ed: Musk Tesla CEO deal — $70 billion over 10 years breaks the mould

Palo Alto - Not a bad bit of pocket money for a decade, you say? Elon Musk is perhaps the easiest target on Earth for critics, and this pay deal is likely fodder for more criticism, but – What if he’s worth it?

Op-Ed: US successfully tests small nuclear power plant for Mars mission

Washington - In what is actually a very large step forward, NASA has tested a small, “paper towel roll” sized nuclear power plant to deliver power for a Mars mission. The fallout from this idea, pun intended, will be interesting.

Op-Ed: New US nuke doctrine— Careful what you wish for

Washington - The idea of new, more “usable” nukes isn’t a Trump administration idea. It’s been around, for a while, including micro-nukes for tactical, less destructive operational use. This idea could be a massive own goal.

Op-Ed: Feds vs states over pot — Billions of dollars at stake

Washington - Why not start a Fed/states war over pot? Not like there’s anything else more productive to do, is there? Yet another stunning regression from the Trump administration is creating chaos in the new marijuana industry.

Op-Ed: Trump to sue Bannon for defamation? Maybe not.

Washington - The furore around the new book Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff has turned to possible legal action by Trump against Bannon. Bannon, meanwhile, is saying that Trump is a great man again, after Trump’s remarks about him.

Op-Ed: Australian banks freezing accounts, exchanges related to Bitcoin

Sydney - The world’s most annoying investment has now become a potential risk, at least according to the actions of some Australian banks. The big Australian banks have been accused of freezing accounts and restricting deposits.

Op-Ed: Facebook vs fake news — Why it will work well

San Francisco - Facebook, not too happy about its status as Troll Heaven for fake news, has decided to stop flagging disputed news and start verifying articles with a clear indicator. That’s a lot simpler than trying to chase every fake new event worldwide.

Op-Ed: Oxford University Press redefines childhood without nature

Oxford - Life is what you make it, they say, but what if your ability to describe it is lost? In this minimalist sewer of a modern “world”, now you can’t even refer to some living things, courtesy Oxford University Press.
