Anybody who is stupid enough to want to be remembered deserves to be forgotten right now.
What if you are not whom the internet says you are?
This week an A.I. app debuted to put any face on a porn video with a single click.
Sure, the face swaps look inaccurate and distorted but to a digital layperson, it looks real. Once a video of someone’s face is transposed on pornography and gets embedded on the internet it cannot be removed and could digitally live forever — at least in the United States.

It might even happen sooner. El Salvador announced this week that Bitcoin is its legal currency. Several exchange-listed companies now have Bitcoin in their portfolios.

On Thursday, July 29 (Asia and Oceania) and Friday, July 30 (Europe and Americas), I will be one of the panelists for the Omnilytics: Fashion Summit 2021 discussing the future of data-driven taxonomy with Artificial Intelligence.
“Everyone is just a set of numbers that the government has access to. Humanity lies in the interpretation of those numbers.”
CNBC came out with a story that stated, “Rapid digital adoption during the pandemic has accelerated the automation of jobs and worsened underlying ageism, making it harder for mid-career workers to secure roles.” Why?
Survey data revealed 45- to 60-year-olds are the most overlooked employee bracket for the following reasons: reluctance among older workers to try new technologies (38%), an inability to learn new skills (27%), and difficulty in working with other generations (21%).
As a data scientist, history is the most important piece of information to show the present and predict the future. However, when that data is flawed or biased, it creates a Fun House mirror effect that warps perceptions and reinforces stereotypes. These stereotypes could have implications for generations to come.
Or if data is truly transparent, it could instigate healing and rebirth.
In commemoration of this weekend’s celebration of Juneteenth, allow me to introduce three datasets — one built with bias cooked-in, one built to separate, and one dataset built for truth and reconciliation.

Both the cryptocurrency and NFT speculation market has been touted as the truth and the way for Artists and the Public at large to be in control of their financial destiny.

On Monday, April 12, New York Stock Exchange announced that it would launch “First Trade” NFTs, to memorialize the true first trade of Spotify, Snowflake, Unity, DoorDash, Roblox, and Coupang.

Maize defines hustle culture:
A trend where people believe that the most important aspect of life is to achieve professional goals by relentlessly and continuously working hard. Any chance of self-fulfillment depends on the grind and personal sacrifice. And the hustler has to sacrifice a lot, no, almost everything.
The pandemic economy has thrown ethyl alcohol on the fire for all those in the hustle culture. To get your hustle on is more than a gig economy and more than Millenials having multiple jobs. …
2020 was crazy.
Now standing in the doorway of 2021, we now have this tiny window of respite. But looking past the usual suspects — false narratives, deep fakes, Artificial Intelligence, COVID-19 and it’s variants — what does the future hold for 2021?
Crazy? Not really.
