In 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for governments to launch a public information campaign to fight the scourge of "fake news," which he said was "killing people’s minds." Cook said this "big problem" necessitated a crackdown by the authorities and tech firms. @elonmusk Image
"It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public… There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic… All of us tech companies need to create some tools that help diminish the volume of fake news." - #TimCook @tim_cook

🔝Mis 3 tuits más vistos de la semana🧐

1⃣ Los problemas de una cartera concentrada o una historia sobre un joven #CharlieMunger y cómo lidió con una volatilidad infernal. Casi 90.000 impresiones ha tenido este tuit. Difícil que lo iguale en el futuro.
2⃣ #TimCook, al poco de hacerse con las riendas de #Apple, llamó al viejo #WarrenBuffett en busca de consejo: ¿qué hago con esta montaña de efectivo? Este "se non è vero, è ben trovato" ha conseguido casi 49.000 impresiones. No está mal para un FAKE.

3⃣ "Rentabilidad Fondos de Inversión en España 2006-2021", el paper del Prof Pablo Fernández donde analiza la performance de los #fondosdeinversión españoles con una trayectoria de ¡15 años! Largo plazo. Casi 48.000 visitas. SPOILER: gana la gestión...🥳

Can ethical, inclusive tech help to create a better world?

This @wef report argues that critical #technologies such as artificial intelligence (#AI) and machine learning, have already defined our world.

@AlbertoMChi @oost_marcel @SaeedBaygi #ML #BigData
Their point is that it's not the #technology, but its curation that matters. Technology for technology's sake is neither positive nor negative.
