In 2012, after scanning 10 million YouTube videos, a Google supercomputer learned to identify a cat with 75% accuracy. That seems impressive, until you remember that an average 4-year old can do it flawlessly. People form plans and make decisions in complicated situations, but we’re less good at making sense of enormous amounts of data. Computers are exactly the opposite. They excel at efficient data-processing, but they struggle at making decisions that would be simple for any human. We can’t say one or the other is more or less powerful – computers and humans are just inherently different. Could this fundamental truth change the way we do software implementations? We believe so.
