Five Things #29 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s five things…

  1. A fascinating conversation with Pedro Domingos on artificial intelligence and machine learning. His thoughts on why white collar jobs are more threatened by AI than blue collar jobs are particularly interesting.
  2. Derek Sivers on how to be useful to others [1m 22s]. Food for thought and a really cool animation.
  3. More food for thought from Ryan Holiday — Tell me who you spend your time with, and I will tell you who you are. If you aren't familiar with Ryan's work check out his books Ego Is The Enemy and The Obstacle Is The Way. Both are excellent.
  4. The greatest rock band on earth. 1000 musicians perform David Bowie's Rebel Rebel.
  5. Finland has plans that will make it the first country in the world to get rid of all school subjects and move towards a model of studying events and topics in an interdisciplinary format. I'm so excited by this idea. It's crazy how little schooling has changed in the last 100+ years and time it's brought into the 21st century. Go Finland!

That's all for this week. If you liked this, check out my previous Five Things posts or sign up to receive future posts in your inbox.
