AI economics

In 1987, American economist and Nobel laureate Robert Solow expressed the thinking of many: "You can see the computer age everywhere but in the productivity statistics".

Sinds enkele weken heb ik af en toe momenten dat ik me verveel. Meestal gebeurt dat ‘s avonds. Dit gevoel is nieuw. Ik weet niet goed waarom.
