Obama and ChatGPT

Another chance

The AI Second Brain

Obama reveals in an interview:

“I tried ChatGPT 3.5 and had a bad experience last year. I thought AI was bad, just a fad. But my wife told me to try the ChatGPT4 version and I was blown away last month! Turns out it can also do data analysis, understand images, read PDFs and code!”

He adds: “Because of that 1 bad experience I was missing out on the benefits of AI to free my time and work smarter.”

Fun fact: He never said this, but I love this new meme format where famous people say AI-related things (and I hope you read that in his voice).

Base Rate Fallacy: Sharpening Decision-Making with Statistical Insight

This cognitive bias occurs when we ignore general statistical rates in favor of specific information, even when the general information is more relevant to the decision at hand.

Considering the impressive success stories of startups without acknowledging the high overall failure rate of such ventures is a classic example.

This bias clouds your judgment, leading to overly optimistic or pessimistic decisions based on incomplete information.

3 Strategies to Overcome the Base Rate Fallacy

  1. Prioritize Statistical Evidence: Start with the base rates of success, failure, or occurrence in any decision-making scenario. Let these rates inform your judgment before considering case-specific information.

  2. Balance Anecdotal and Statistical Evidence: While personal stories and case studies can provide valuable insights, balance them with statistical evidence to avoid skewed perceptions.

  3. Use Probabilistic Thinking: Embrace thinking in probabilities rather than absolutes. Assess decisions based on the likelihood of various outcomes, incorporating both base rates and specific information.

When making decisions, stories capture our imagination and are easy to understand, but the true essence and moral lie within the data.

So dive into the numbers to uncover the deeper truth.
