How do you enhance the empathy quotient in a PM in this data driven age?

As AI takes more prominent strides to reduce human bias in decison making, how to make PM cempathetic

Komal -

A good PM demonstrates a high level of EQ. I don't believe this needs to increase as use of AI/Machine Learning increases, but PMs will need to be more vigilant and aware of the potential "dark side" if they happen to lead projects which will introduce the use of AI for a specific decision making purpose.

Dear Komal
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing

I think there were two questions :-)

Does "AI take more prominent strides to reduce human bias in decison making"?

A few days ago I started reading a Hannah Fry book "Hello World: Being Human in the Age of Algorithms"

She addresses this topic of Artificial Intelligence in the decision making process.

I recommend you read the book and see her interventions at TED Talks

How much more data and information do we have about people will facilitate the development of empathy?

With all my due respect AI do not reduce human bias. Human being are always taken the final decision in AI based environments. Take a look to AI definitions. Think that AI entities take the final decision is something installed because the science fiction but not what happend in the real world.

Dear Sergio
I had an opinion very similar to yours until you read some chapters of Hannah Fry's book "Hello World: Being Human in the Age of Algorithms"
I don't think the book I am referring to is science fiction :-)

Luis. Sorry for writting about me but just for giving some context. I am a researcher of AI from 1986 including it I published a book that was taken as a base for blockchain. Today I am mixing my AI research with QC to simulate human consciousness. AI has becomes a "buzzword" in the last years unfortunatelly. Can an AI entity take decisions? Of course. For years fuzzy logic is included into refrigerators. Is that what happend in the real world when AI entities has to be used in something that is critical for human being? Not at all. At least for serious uses of AI. Few people know but AI is sorounded us from long time ago. I encourage people going to understand how an AI entity works. After processing, they deliver three results with the associated probability and human being must choose.On the other side, I think is better to read serious work like Roger Penrose "The Emperor's New Mind " or Godels and Douglas Hofstadter work.

Dear Sergio
Thanks for your sharing

I am always so grateful when the people I exchange opinions talk about themselves and their experience.

I don't think it's bad, on the contrary

Despite being unique, acceptable and respectable, these lived and reported situations allow us to have a perspective of those who experienced them.

Surely I'll read the book you suggested: "The Emperor's New Mind" (correct me if I'm wrong. It is a work published in 1991)

If I have access to these works I will read with all my attention and interest Godels and Douglas Hofstadter

If I combine these readings with those of Hannah Fry, I'm sure to get richer because with more than one perspective.

No problem with that. I only put my comments about things I have knowleded but thank´s God I do not own the thruth (in fact, the thruth is something we are going for). But my first intention is trying to help people to avoid buzzwords because the basement, the pillars are outside there from long time ago. Buzzwords are jeopardizing the work of lot of people but mainly the needs of all of other people that are trying to find a new job.

I don't see one affecting the other. Empathy is a human trait that would remain as an aspect not replaceable by AI. That said, as PM's we should ensure we continue to use our EQ (as Kiron notes).
