Book review: AI Super Powers, Social Physics, Sensemaking

My key takeaway: these 3 books agree on one thing: in the age of cutting-edge technology implementation like AI, social media; social science (i.e., the knowledge about how we understand interpersonal interaction) is needed more than ever today.

Lee accentuates that jobs related to understanding human such as caregivers will have an important role in the future. Pentland mentions so many human behaviors could be explained from massive flows of ideas and information (See the impact of Facebook on today’s society). Lastly, Madsjberg claims that humanities-based thinking is threatened by only-data-driven technologies, but the winner is the one who can put cultural knowledge/social context on the data.
