Why Socrates? Why now?

It would be reductionist and simplistic to attribute the birth of logic, rational and ethical thought to an individual. But if there is one individual who can be credited with this, it would undoubtedly be Socrates. And that is my inspiration behind this blog – how do we all get better at ‘Thinking like Scorates’?

I propose to divide my blog into 2 parts:

  1. I am fortunate to be in the front and center of the massive interest in Data, Cognitive Computing – more broadly, Decision Sciences. I hope to share my thoughts and learn on what is going on out there: and in the process, we can all be better at sifting the reality from the hype.
  2. I am a voracious reader – and in the best tradition of serendipity, I devour a wide variety of topics – mostly, I immensely enjoy reading for the sake of it. I will share whatever I glean – if nothing else, interesting articles, books, and of late, podcasts.

So, here we go – my commitment is to post something every week.

Thanks for joining! And look forward to hearing from you!
