Vanity Fair has an article by Michael Lewis on Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow book.
One of the data center executives turned me on to the Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande, and guess what. Atul was influenced by the same King of Human Error.
hen you wander into the work of Kahneman and Tversky far enough, you come to find their fingerprints in places you never imagined even existed. It’s alive in the work of the psychologist Philip Tetlock, who famously studied the predictions of putative political experts and found they were less accurate than predictions made by simple algorithms. It’s present in the writing of Atul Gawande (Better, The Checklist Manifesto), who has shown the dangers of doctors who place too much faith in their intuition.
One of the patterns that is interesting to investigate is where the judgement errors are made in the data center.
Why is this important for a green data center? Because there are judgement errors all over the place.
