Insights: High Tech, High Touch, & How To Keep The Human In An Algorithmic World

YouTube announced this week that, in digging out from the Adpocalypse, it would hire 10,000 people to monitor all the problematic content that we humans keep posting there. Earlier this year, after Facebook’s own content debacles, it said it would hire 4,000 additional human content cops.

Both announcements are reminders that as more of our lives are powered by artificial intelligence and digital assistants and nifty algorithms that serve up just the entertainment and news and services that we think we want, we’re still going to need real people.

And I suspect the need for human engagement will only increase for years to come, and not just for the Duopolists. Everyone else is trying to figure out how to thrive in a Facebook/Google universe. Given the direction many publishers and creators are headed, it looks like thriving online also will depend on thriving more offline.

‘Kevin (Probably) Saves the World’: The Show’s Unique Premise Owes Inspiration to Jewish Mythology
[Editor’s note: Light spoilers for the premiere episode of “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” follow.]

The new shows that make up the bulk of the fall broadcast TV season fall into pretty obvious categories: military drama (“The Brave”), medical drama (“The Good Doctor”), family comedy/annual expansion of the Chuck Lorre empire (“Young Sheldon”).

And then there’s “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” the ABC drama airing Tuesday nights, which doesn’t fit neatly into any box in particular. The official synopsis, per ABC:

Kevin Finn (Jason Ritter) is not a good person. He’s not terrible, but he’s selfish, and clueless, and values material wealth and status over all else. And he’s beginning to realize that those things aren’t making him happy – in fact, he’s fairly miserable. Just when things seem to be at their worst, he finds himself tasked with an unbelievable mission… saving the world…

NCIS Season 15 Is Bringing On A New Female Agent For Action,New Details

Recently, CBS put out a news article on their website revealing that we’re about to see a new female agent join the NCIS crew for the upcoming season 15. It turns out that the show has decided to hire actress Maria Bello to portray an NCIS agent that was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army and served two tours in Afghanistan. Their article didn’t reveal the character’s name. So, I guess we’ll have to wait until later on or until she finally arrives on the show to get that intel.
