This TED talk shows what the speaker ( Pattie Maes ) calls Sixth Sense Devices to help us in our decision making endeavors.
I’ve been thinking about this problem continuously. I try to act rationally. The problem with acting rationally is two fold.
1st is that timely and accurate information is very hard to access at any given time. As the speaker said, you don’t strut out your phone and google someone. This is a problem because we are continuously faced with choices, and bad choices compound. To be able to deal with the increasing complexity of our world. We have too much data, we have too many goals, too many things we want to optimize, we need something to help us with this.
2nd we need a good way for us to record our decision making accuracy kind of like what athletes do with all the bio informatics stuff. If we want to improve in life we must first know where we need to change , and with the help of the pareto principle I believe we could get a great bargain!
