Innovation: Find Inspiration Across Industries

Innovation: Find Inspiration Across Industries | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

Angela Dunn gives tips for healthcare innovators to find inspiration from other industries and interviews  Ángel González of Ideagoras.

blogbrevity's insight:

Why is Apple looking to the fashion industry for inspiration? Some speculate  this may be because of Apple’s interest in wearable technology. Wearable sales are expected to reach $19 billion by 2018. How can you find inspiration from other industries? My new post and interview with healthcare innovator Ángel González of Ideagoras.

The Future for Scientists | E.O. Wilson | Five Principles for Budding Scientists

The Future for Scientists | E.O. Wilson | Five Principles for Budding Scientists | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

Harvard researcher and famed biologist E.O. Wilson thinks humanity is on the cusp of a new golden age in scientific discovery. Current trends in science and technology predict the doubling of progress every 15 years.

 

"So swift is the velocity of the technoscientific revolution," said Wilson, "so startling in its twists and turns, that no one can predict its outcome, even a decade from its present moment."

 

Wilson advises:

• The thirst for knowledge is in our genes. Breadth is as important as depth.

• Observe from a distance, but do not join the fray.

• Find an interesting question to solve.

• What is crucial is not technical ability, but it is imagination.

• Find the subject at your level of competence that interests you deeply and focus on that.

 

"It is far easier for scientists, including medical researchers, to acquire the needed collaboration in mathematics and statistics than it is for mathematicians and statisticians to find scientists able to make use of their equations."

Envisioning the future of financial technology

Envisioning the future of financial technology | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

Why is the future of finance?
The financial sector is practically as old as humanity itself. Currency and value are intrinsically connected to modern society, and historical attempts to undo this tie have failed. While the sector is frequently mired in crises, it has shown surprising resilience from being displaced by other paradigms. Rapid advances and dissemination of emerging technology, however, promises to upend many characteristics we take for granted.

This visualization attempts to gauge the technological readiness of the financial industry as a whole. While looking at trends that are likely to influence the very notion of value in the coming decades, we try to establish a baseline of whether organizations are paying enough attention to the imminent changes that will define the future of society or if they are running the risk of lettingaccelerating change vanquish existing business models.

Thinking Futures – Understanding Foresight | Maree Conway

Thinking Futures – Understanding Foresight | Maree Conway | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

"Foresight is a thinking capacity. It starts by thinking about what is happening today, looking for trends, drivers of change, wildcards and seeking patterns of change that are relevant to your organisation. You are attempting to answer the questions – what is changing and why does it matter?

 

And…you don’t stop watching for change."

"On the Internet, we’ve reached a tipping point where more than 50% of all Internet traffic is no longer generated by humans – instead, it's generated by a motley mix of search engine spiders, bots, scrapers, scammers, hackers and, yes, spies.

 

As mobile devices become even more ubiquitous, this trend toward the creation of a vast Bot Net will only accelerate."

SENSITIVE SCIENCE

SENSITIVE SCIENCE | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

Bush imagines a more colorful future and dynamic new form factors. Putting anything on your body is an expression of who you are, and how you feel. Glasses started out as a purely medical device, but are now a style object – even for those who don’t need them. "We wear objects as adornment, to feel good," says Bush. Why not look at a neck brace or a walking stick in the same way?

"Permamarks addresses a need overlooked by most content curation tools available today. ... Ideally, I'd see the curator referring to the original content with a parallel copy being saved and archived for future reference.

The Internet Archive has been a leader on this since the inception of the Internet. They have a subscription service called Archive-It and you can share access to those perma-links using their WayBack Machine. Here's the link to that site: https://archive.org/web/web.php
Robin Good's comment, August 3, 2013 10:33 PM
Asil, thank you so much for this very appropriate reminder.
blogbrevity's comment, August 5, 2013 6:20 AM
Great opportunity to explain the difference! Permamarks is a "hybrid" way to save links, and the basic version is free. Permamarks creates ONE link that is BOTH a bookmark and an archive at the point of time YOU viewed it: http://pmrks.com/cronut-for-saving-links. When you share a permamark, it provides content in the "context" of when you viewed it. That is what makes Permamarks so valuable for scooping. It preserves a link to a current "realtime" page, but if that page has been removed or changed, you automatically have an archived version at the point in time you captured it. Your scoop.it pages stay relevant and free of dead links. This is very different from other archiving or caching services you can go back to and research pages or links archived at "their" point in time (which may be different from "your" point in time.) Robin, this reminds me of when I first defined curation as different from aggregation because curation presented a "point of view." This is so important to curation. Now an individual can save the internet from their own "point of view." Thank you, again, for this great post and discussions.

More and more interactive products are being returned. In 2002, 48% of all returned products were technically fully functional but were rejected for failing to satisfy user needs (28%) or purely due to users’ remorse (20%).

 

User experiences are subjective and dynamic, but by and large, interactive products are not designed to take people’s changing capacity and experience into account. But they could. Here, I present a model for how designers can use the fundamentals of video games and the psychological principles of flow to design enhanced user experiences...."

Google Now: behind the predictive future of search

Google Now: behind the predictive future of search | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it
How Google learned to un-fragment itself and create the next big thing...

 

For decades, visions of the future have played with the magical possibilities of computers: they'll know where you are, what you want, and can access all the world's information with a simple voice prompt. That vision hasn't come to pass, yet, but features like Apple's Siri and Google Now offer a keyhole peek into a near future reality where your phone is more "Personal Assistant" than "Bar bet settler." The difference is that the former actually understands what you need while the latter is a blunt search instrument.

 

Google Now is one more baby step in that direction. Introduced this past June with Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean," it's designed to ambiently give you information you might need before you ask for it.

"Innovators are Conversation Architects"

"Innovators are Conversation Architects" | Angela Dunn foresight | Scoop.it

 

 

A look back to look ahead ... 

 

The above Prezi, "Innovators are Conversation Architects," is from my presentations on Twitter and curation in 2010 both at Realtime in New York and the IDEAGORAS conference for Healthcare Social Media in Madrid.

 

I saw that "curating" content around strategic hashtags could also become a powerful means of community-building and branding. I thought about the power an individual could have for innovation, and the many opportunities conversation architects could create with global hashtag conversations.
