Bias in Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is quickly taking over many functions of our day-to-day lives. It can already schedule appointments, look things up on the internet, and compose texts and emails for us. But what happens when AI takes over more serious parts of our lives (though, texting is pretty important)? That’s the challenge researchers and developers are […] Continue Reading

Why Do People Invest in Unprofitable Businesses?

I have long been interested in why people invest in unprofitable companies. As a small business owner, profit is key (along with cash flow). Profit is how your company grows and how you feed your family. But for large companies like SpaceX, profit is not important. Growth is key, as we will see. I chose […] Continue Reading

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act

Section 230 has come under considerable scrutiny over the last few weeks due to run-ins between Trump and Twitter. Last week the Justice Department proposed that Section 230 be scaled back. This is all tied to Twitter flagging Trump’s tweets warning people of inciting language. Trump, obviously, was not happy about this and issued an […] Continue Reading

Flat Fees vs. Hourly Fees

I have made my feelings on hourly fees for knowledge work known (see my blog here). I don’t think that hourly pay represents what we’re really getting paid for – our knowledge and experience. However, I doubt that flat fees are a solution to that problem. Flat fees are trendy. Flat fees are routinely touted […] Continue Reading

Law Firm Automation

I’ve been writing a lot about artificial intelligence lately and commenting on what it can and can’t do in workplaces. The truth is, you don’t need artificial intelligence to bring your firm into the 21st century. Many other options exist to add automation to your practice. Most of these options are simple to implement and […] Continue Reading

Can Artificial Intelligence Replace Workers?

I read an article a few weeks ago about how Microsoft is cutting dozens of news workers and replacing them with artificial intelligence (article). Microsoft reported that the work of the reporters has been semi-automated for months. This is nothing new. Many news outlets have been relying on AI to generate their content. The process […] Continue Reading

Exaggerated Capabilities of Artificial Intelligence

I recently read an article about Gemma Milne in Forbes (article). She wrote a book called Smoke & Mirrors. It’s a book about the misuse of technical terminology and how it can affect funding, policy-making, voting, and other things. Though I have not read her book (and, therefore, cannot vouch for it), I thought it […] Continue Reading

Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has come under some scrutiny over the last few months. Many business owners felt that the program didn’t give them enough flexibility to use the funds productively while maintaining their right to have the loans forgiven. The government listened and the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (PPPFA) was signed into […] Continue Reading

Artificial Intelligence Pushes the Boundaries of Microprocessors

Lately, I have been writing extensively about the pandemic and changes that are coming in response to it. But my true interest lies in future technology. I’m am fascinated with advances in artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the internet of things. This blog takes me back to those important topics. I want to discuss how microprocessors […] Continue Reading

How Will Schools Reopen in the Fall?

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding whether our schools will reopen come fall and what that reopening will look like. My wife is a teacher, and not a day goes by without some guessing and discussion about whether there will be e-learning or changes to classrooms. Make no mistake, there will be changes. No […] Continue Reading
