This is from reading this article about predictive analytics in FinTech

Reading List

  • Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow; https://www.amazon.com/Homo-Deus-Brief-History-Tomorrow/dp/0062464310
  • J.L. Austin How do Do Things with Words. “Austin studied a class of utterances (which he termed ‘performatives’) that do not refer to states of the world, but that in themselves constitute acts such as promising, threatening, and naming. He argued that the generally accepted view of the truth and falsity of propositions was not applicable to many of these speech acts. It does not make sense to ask whether a particular utterance of ‘I pronounce you man and wife’ or ‘Get me a hamburger’ is true or false, but rather whether it is felicitous — whether it is appropriate to the context in which it is uttered” (Understanding Computer and Cognition, page 58)
