I recently read a writing from one of my favourite author karan bajaj…. He has written about the importance of learning over other material things in career. It just coincided in my current reference of thoughts of learning about investment industry, data analytics, and fin-tech…

Learning is not about where did you learn, what did u learn. How do you shape an outcome with our learning experience matters in this ambiguous world. There is nothing wrong to be ambiguous, expecting world and life to be flat and linear is not practical. The right thing is to accept the world as it is.


Now, what to learn? It all begins with passive reading, browsing,knowing facts etc. dedicated time and energy is required for learning…learning for does not matter. learning from perhaps matter. the source is the biggest thing. I realized over a period of time, that learning is not about reading, knowing and seeing. It is something more than that. It is experiential. It is a combination of many things. Learning is a way of life. Things has to become a way of life. Like eating, sleeping, sharing, learning has to be a way of life. The point is ‘how’ to learn. In which sequence. Outcome and benefits alone isn’t the driving factor. I need to generate some focus as to what is that I would like to learn & ‘how’. Which subject I need to know in depth.

Unlike a computer/Robot, humans have unlimited set of intelligence. How does a human exercise intelligence. How does he relate and access finer faculties in his mind. How ? What’s the process. Intriguing….


Learning theories are conceptual frameworks describing how information is absorbed, processed, and retained during learning. Cognitive, emotional, and environmental influences, as well as prior experience, all play a part in how understanding, or a world view, is acquired or changed and knowledge and skills retained

There are many different conditions that influence transfer of learning. These conditions include features of the task, features of the learner, features of the organization and social context of the activity. The features of the task include practicing through simulations, problem-based learning, and knowledge and skills for implementing new plans. The features of learners include their ability to reflect on past experiences, their ability to participate in group discussions, practice skills, and participate in written discussions

NF3. Chess aficianodas will recognize that unusual yet unique opening move of Gary Kasporav, which he used to defeat Deep Blue in 1996, after losing the first game to the computer. A year later though, Deep blue came back with a larger database improved software and more CPU power to beat the then – greatest chess player in the world.  Deep blue was less about Intelligence and more about automating  a hugely complex but finite set of decision rules.The press saw it as the turning point where man lost his edge to machine. But Kasparov saw it differently. He recognized the nuance of what computers were capable of. Deep Blue was unbeatable – Kasparov once called it ‘godlike perfection’. at a select number of board configurations. But there were instances, both then and now, where a chess game is won by creativity. which is the one thing computers couldn’t offer. Freestyle chess, or letting humans use computers to guide their decisions is not the most advanced method of competitive chess. Man plus machine beats both man and machine. Media/press saw with Deep Blue was a black and white, one winner, one loser. But the grandmasters of work are the ones who realize that automation doesn’t make human skill irrelevant. More often, it leverages their work and frees up time to double down on things humans are good at, like context, communication and empathy.



Critics : Our English word “critique” is rooted in the ancient Greek verb krino which often meant “to decide” or “to judge.” While the word “critique” in modern parlance has varied shades of usage, the underlying presence of a “judgment” remains intact. Being called “critical” is usually pejorative in the English-speaking world, yet each of us assigns merit to the information we experience daily. We “judge” what we hear on the news. We “evaluate” a university lecture. We “like” or “dislike” a movie, a meal, a photo, a story. We’re all critics.
