There’s an interesting contradiction here.
Dan Coleman

But isn’t the argument that data has inherent meaning ultimately self-defeating? If we say data has meaning, meaning for whom? It would be like saying paint is inherently artistic. Paint only becomes art in the hands of an artist. And art is only art (or not) because a person is experiencing it. We want data to be useful, and I’m suggesting that it can be useful if we treat it not as objectively meaningful, but only if we bring our creativity to it and make something meaningful from it.

Once the robots take over data may have some inherent meaning, but that’s a topic for another day…
