Summary

The most powerful weapon in business today is the alliance between the mathematical smarts of machines and the imaginative human intellect of great leaders. Together they make the mathematical corporation, the business model of the future.
We are at a once-in-a-decade breaking point similar to the quality revolution of the 1980s and the dawn of the Internet age in the 1990s. Leaders must transform how they run their organizations, or competitors will bring them crashing to earth - often overnight.
Mathematical corporations - the organizations that will master the future - will outcompete high-flying rivals by merging the best of human ingenuity with machine intelligence. While smart machines are weapon number one for organizations, leaders are still the drivers of breakthroughs. Only they can ask crucial questions to capitalize on business opportunities newly discovered in oceans of data.
This dynamic combination will make possible the fulfillment of missions that once seemed out of reach, even impossible to attain. Josh Sullivan and Angela Zutavern's extraordinary examples include the entrepreneur who upended preventive health care, the oceanographer who transformed fisheries management, and the pharmaceutical company that used algorithm-driven optimization to boost vaccine yields.
Together they offer a profoundly optimistic vision for a dazzling new phase in business and a playbook for how smart companies can manage the essential combination of human and machine.

Inspiring and informative

Inspiring, well researched and informative look at an important topic of today - the possibility and necessity of humans collaborating with machines to address global challenges and create a better future.

The book examines the implications of using machine learning in business and society and what this means for anyone in leadership position and in fact, everyone else.

If you dont already know this...

If you do not know what the authors here propose intuitively already I think you might have been sleeaping. The book is okay, but one major thing bugs me. The authors advocate for keeping complexity, but the consept is onely cursary detailed in the book. The details of the consept drowns in anecdotal stories of how big mind has been applied. all inn all an okay read, but I had hoped for more.

Great overview but superficial

Good listen though superficial. Would have liked more detail about each case. Also, the authors are not up to speed on the latest research. They mention the Hot Hand Fallacy, but recent research strongly suggest it might not be a fallacy after all.
