last updated:

The seventh episode of the podcast we now know and love as "We Love Ugly Data!" is out; Matt and Alan are in the chairs this time; skip to the topics you're most interested in, or maybe sit back and enjoy the whole thing? Come on, it's only 30 minutes and you deserve a break.

The (magnificent) seventh episode of the podcast we now know and love as “We Love Ugly Data!” is out; available everywhere you get your podcasts from and, of course, in video form via YouTube (which we’ve embedded below). As ever, it’s 3 topics in 30 minutes, Matt and Alan are in the chairs this time; skip to the topics you’re most interested in, or maybe sit back and enjoy the whole thing? Come on, it’s only 30 minutes and you deserve a break. Show notes are as ever, included below the embedded video.

In this episode,

Topic 1: AI & Supply Chain

In a segment that we could easily have called “Where In The World Has Alan Been?” (if we’d not done that several times before), Alan’s been speaking at Parcel Forum in Nashville, and even though 10 minutes isn’t anywhere near enough time to distill the entire keynote into a podcast, here he and Matt discuss some of the key elements of that presentation.

Topic 2: Citizen Developer Survey

Deep Analysis is currently running an industry survey around current trends, adoption, and attitudes toward “Citizen Development,” and here Matt and Alan discuss why we’re doing it, why you should contribute, and some of the positive (and negative) rationales behind using this technology.

Topic 3: Stop Personifying AI!

Matt’s written a (slightly angry) blog post in the wake of Salesforce’s recent “Dreamforce” conference about how we should all be really careful about the language we use to describe AI, not ascribe human qualities to it (like intent) and certainly not use imagined power as a way to sell defensive features in your software. But you’d never do that, now, would you?

Show notes for Series 2, Episode 6.
