We all want to make the right decisions, but it’s hard for us to see systematically an overview of all our decisions, why we made them and how they fared.
A smart app that allows you to input structured data (it will guide you how) about the decision, before making the decision. When you know the result of the decision (was it the right decision), and if available the theory of why it had the result it did, you input that as well. After a time, and the more cases are in the app; it’ll use AI to discover patterns you can improve upon to make your decisions more likely be the right ones. The app can also use an extensive database of other users’ data to improve the analysis.
Unfortunately, publications today mostly don’t have to pay the price for publishing something wrong or false. The reasons are many but probably foremost is a lack of journalistic integrity and not checking up on information. It would be good to know what was wrong and who published it, so we can have some accountability.
Build a publication with volunteers who check up on published news items and articles that seem to be sloppy on the facts side. Publish the findings of those who failed the check up.
