This is evident specifically in the first world and other Western countries as playgrounds are no longer the center of children’s activities. Even preschoolers are busy tapping away on their tablets on their mobile apps for kids that their parents got for them. Come on now, parents, do you really think very young kids need gadgets of their own? There was a time when parents used to let their kids go play outside the house, or the park and on the playgrounds. They let their kids’ hangout with other kids without worrying too much about dirt or a bit of horseplay and a bit of horseplay would make the kids better. Sometimes, adults worry too much or are just too engrossed in gadgets that we forget that children need to really play and interact with other children to gain emotional and intellectual growth.
Susan Etlinger , industry analyst at Altimeter Group, said, “Much like the way we increasingly wish to know the place and under what conditions our food and clothing are made, we should question how our data and decisions are made as well. What is the supply chain for that information? Is there clear stewardship and an audit trail? Were the assumptions based on partial information, flawed sources or irrelevant benchmarks? Did we train our data sufficiently? Were the right stakeholders involved, and did we learn from our mistakes? The upshot of all of this is that our entire way of managing organizations will be upended in the next decade. The power to create and change reality will reside in technology that only a few truly understand. So to ensure that we use algorithms successfully, whether for financial or human benefit or both, we need to have governance and accountability structures in place. Easier said than done, but if there were ever a time to bring the smartest minds in industry together with the smartest minds in academia to solve this problem, this is the time.”
