In honor of Tax Day, new KDnuggets Cartoon looks at an unexpected white-collar job that may resist automation and Machine Learning.



April 15 is a tax day in the US, when taxes are traditionally due (although because of weekends and holidays they are usually due a couple of days later).

In real-life, robots and AI are learning to lie on par with the best of humans: In January 2017 CMU poker bot Libratus defeated 4 of the world's best professional poker players, and winning in poker requires both bluffing and understanding when the opponent bluffs. Also IRS is reported to use software to detect tax cheating and even published about one prototype.

Here are other KDnuggets Big Data, Data Mining, and Data Science Cartoons.
