Absolutely fantastic read. Incredibly interesting application of data, AI & ML. Particularly interested in the highlighted bit – will be exciting to see how this kind of technology will influence the way in which governments all over the world collect, interpret and represent data on the citizens of their nations, and how that will influence the rate at which they can react to dramatic changes in measurable aspects of the societies they govern.
