Here’s an interesting TED talk by cognitive psychologist Paul Bloom about the origins of pleasure. What’s cool to me is he uses the same anecdotes (Hans van Meergeren, Joshua Bell) that I’ve used previously to illustrate the need for provenance. I often make a technical case for provenance for automated systems. He makes a compelling case that provenance is fundamental for people. Check out the video below… and let me know what you think.
Thanks to Shiyong Lu for the pointer.
