Leave a comment

The amount of numerical data and algorithms that determine how data should be interpreted is ever-increasing.  This data is beginning to be used in identifying the effectiveness of workers.  It could revolutionize the way merit is identified and how businesses make decisions about their workers.

Admittedly, this is a long article, but, in my humble opinion, it is one of the best I have posted in awhile.  If you can’t read it in it’s entirety, make sure you catch the part near the end about Gild and human analytics based on algorithms.
