Hello everyone!

The 38th edition of “It Depends”, my weekly newsletter is out. Give it a shot!

Organization often hold the opinion that rule-based systems are less powerful than machine learning and only form the first version before the team can move onto the cool ML stuff.

From the internet this week, Dr.Ackoff’s lecture on system theory, @evanbottcher on what a platform is and isn’t, and @markgreville on how technology architects make decisions.
