Smart Automation leverages feedback loops between humans and machines to efficiently evolve systems and effectively leverage each other's strengths. Humans can think creatively and openly to find novel solutions while machines can efficiently search through enormous amounts of data to find specific patterns. When these two skill sets are combined appropriately, they provide huge value. In this post we go through a high-level view of feedback loops for Smart Automation and the best ways to leverage them.
Most humans have linear intuition and miss out the larger complexities behind systems all around us. We don't understand how a small change in a seemingly unrelated part of a system can have a big impact on another, and we don't see how these changes feed into each other to produce complex behaviors. The study of Dynamical Systems has been around since the 1910's and Systems Thinking has since the 1950's. In this post we go through what these disciplines are and real-world examples of the significant impact they can have on businesses.
