Amazing game theoretic take on "The evolution of trust" or rather mistrust :\
Sit back, it will be time well spent(my score 30). Offers a glimpse into the real world of trust, altruism in face of compounding effects of fake news and "virtually" social interaction!

Simple designs may appeal to the limbic brain, but isn't design and ultimately success contextual? For example, a few successful hi-touch websites:-

Simple: Google; LinkedIn(only recently though!), Apple, Medium, Wikipedia

Complex: Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, YouTube, Reddit

As MOOCs continue to experiment with delivery models to achieve better student outcomes in order to bridge the gap between user intent and user behavior ( as reflected in low completion rates). One could perhaps think of two broad approaches:

1)Data/AI driven: As laid out in this Berkley piece on a machine learned approach "(by).... both tracking learners’ behaviors in real-time and dynamically adapting content based on each learner’s individual clickstream history." A variant of this approach is already seen in likes of Khan Academy.


2) Human driven : By populating an online classroom with adequate number of mentors and close involvement of professors or TA's along with cohort driven peer evaluations to effectively deal with the fundamental problem of lack of feedback and collaboration in an asynchronous learning environment.

Six Myths of Product Development

Most product-development managers are always struggling to bring in projects on time and on budget. They never have enough resources to get the job done, and their bosses demand predictable schedules and deliverables. So the managers push their teams to be more parsimonious, to write more-detailed plans, and to minimize schedule variations and waste.

Overengineering is the most ubiquitous pitfall of product development, both software and hardware. Does this sound familiar?

"Product-development teams seem to believe that adding features creates value for customers and subtracting them destroys value. This attitude explains why products are so complicated: Remote controls seem impossible to use, computers take hours to set up, cars have so many switches and knobs that they resemble airplane cockpits, and even the humble toaster now comes with a manual and LCD displays."

- "Algorithms give the illusion of being unbiased but are written by people and trained on socially generated data. So they can encode and amplify human biases. "

-"Algorithms can lead to inequitable outcomes"

We may not face an existential danger from AI yet. However, real actors would certainly take advantage of garb of AI driven by black-box algorithms. This becomes even more relevant when AI/Deep Learning incorporates unstructured data with limited contextual training to draw conclusions. Think of social media feeds, AI driven hiring processes.
