How Frank is building a better working world
Mathematics, data, statistics and algorithms bring huge and wide-reaching benefits to society and business. Conversely, they can also create risks, if not used judiciously. Opening the black box and enabling and helping others to be knowledgeable on and at ease with these formidable tools, is what Frank wants to be known for. Secretly, he hopes to let them perceive their beauty like he does.
