In the journey that we will make towards an AI-centric world (are we there yet?) I recommend reading the words of Daniel Kahneman (T1). The article hints at an inevitability of a world where we don't win - and if that is the case, how do we play? And if AI is a subject that continues to intrigue you, there are a couple of other article that will support your education, including PWC's report (T3).

I'm still a little in shock at the unravelling of Bill Gates (A6) and wonder if legacy will maintain. But I'm most worried about how Covid is ravaging the Seychelles when vaccinations are so high there. (A1)

For something a little more mind boggling, imagine what sport will be like in thirty years (T10).

Stay curious!

Onward! - Rahim
