Just for sake of conversation, we could contrast the worldview of Hillary Clinton and the worldview of Donald Trump as two different ways to take input and then make decisions. I suspect that an important role of business leaders will be to decide what the worldview should be of artificial intelligence that is making decisions for their businesses.
