Progress Paradox debate | thinking: relating- celebrating :-) | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
Here is the actual debate between Gordon and Brynjolfsson from TED 2013. Towards the end it goes in some surprising directions. Gordons first question relates
Mariana Soffer's insight:

Erik really nailed it when he says we’ve got this disconnect between productivity and employment.. take the robots – the robots are gonna make money for the people who invent them; they are going to make money for the people who own them and they are going to displace workers.

The refrigerator guy said – that’s the only thing I know how to do with my life… and many of them are dropping out.

What good is it a world in which we have these really snazzy machines, and we listen to all this great music for free on the internet -

but we don’t have gainful employment and we have this next generation coming up with high school drop outs?”

Mariana Soffer's insight:

In the era of big data, we’re confronted by the question Brenda Somich recently blogged: How do you handle information overload?  “Does today’s super-connected and informative online environment allow us to work to our potential?” Somich asked.  “Is all this information really making us smarter?”

I have blogged about how much of the unstructured data that everyone is going gaga over is gigabytes of gossip and yottabytes of yada yada digitized.  While most of our verbalized thoughts were always born this way, with word of mouth becoming word of data, big data is making little data monsters of us all.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 2013 9:09 PM

If you have wondered why spatial skills matter this post states "The ability to mentally manipulate shapes and otherwise understand how the three-dimensional world works turns out to be an important predictor of creative and scholarly achievements, according to research published this month in the journal Psychological Science."

Why is this important? It turns out that spatial skills at the age of 13 turn out to predict "the likelihood that the individual would develop new knowledge and produce innovation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the domains collectively known as STEM."

For more information on this as well as links to additional resources check out this post.

 louisgray.com: You Have Your Tech Routine. But It Will End. | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it


As much fun as it has been to play the role of early adopter and use every service to its fullest, I believe we’re well past the mania time of social networking, services and apps. Being on a platform isn’t the same as using the platform well. And if you can’t find measurable or emotional value to participating in a place, there’s no harm in calling it quits - or continuing to have your eyes open for what’s next, so you don’t find yourself entrenched in the way things have always been, while missing new experiences.

Sometimes that means never joining in the first place, analyzing what you’ve seen and deciding if that makes sense for you. Even though I was an early trial user of Burbn, I never got an Instagram account, and I lived. I never got into GetGlue, and won’t. I never liked Turntable.fm, and I’ve never done a Snapchat. Maybe it’s the graying hairs on my head, or being closer to 40 than 30, but I know time is valuable.

Mariana Soffer's insight:

Someday all of this will stop, and when I pick up my head from the computer monitor, will I feel as if I’ve missed something, or will I be happy with the results of what I’ve done?

 

Probably there were lots of useless and irrelevant information I placeced on the net.

Why Do We Endlessly Retweet Tragedy? | TechCrunch | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
With the utmost respect for victims and survivors, may I question why we feel so compelled to personally spread bad news? Why with each bombing or disaster we all race to tell everyone we know what happened?
Mariana Soffer's insight:

Our brains are not wired for the modern age and the incredibly powerful tools we’ve built to transmit information. A few thousand years ago, literal word of mouth was all we had. If you heard something bad was happening, it probably directly affected you. “There’s a sabretooth tiger coming! Run!” “Don’t drink the water, it’s poisoned.”

I think this issue is confusing for executives. They may think this is only a face to face presentation form of storytelling when I think the focus should also be on the multimedia delivery of storytelling to for internal and external communication. 

Karen Dietz's comment, September 22, 2013 10:43 AM
Hi Parker -- I appreciate you adding your voice here. In my experience, executives are too quick to put their stories into digital media. The ability to build a personal connection is lost when doing so. There are times when moving a story into digital media is important, but far greater value is created when sharing stories in person.

"In an always-on digital age, it isn’t just adults who struggle with distraction, multimedia multitasking, and their negative physical and emotional side effects. At key ages for brain development, children and tweens are trying to navigate their own uses of personal communication technologies. The tension that results between family members around one another’s habits has been hugely–and somewhat ironically–disconnecting.
We’ve observed that families need and want catalysts for dialogue–and action–around their use of digital devices. Yet our focus isn’t just on limiting screen time. We’ve developed a physical toolkit and supporting media to encourage collaborative reflection and exploration. "

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it

How do you find the time for social media? This is the question I get asked probably more than any other.

 

I have four lovely children, a demanding job, a wife with a successful career and more. So how do I find the time to tweet, blog, share, and comment?

 

The answer is simple: I make the time for social media because I think it’s important.

 

I believe that business people in general, and marketers especially, have an obligation to do more than just consume content or share other people’s content, but to become a content creator and to contribute to your work and your life.

I think its fair to stay that at the beginning of your social media journey it can be very time consuming getting to grips with the different platforms and building up followers and looking for decent content to share. You also have to develop your style. That said, with the right tools and mindset your time investment lessens substantially - unless you get hooked!
Martin Gysler's comment, April 19, 2013 7:56 AM
Indeed, at the beginning the most things are difficult and need more time. After it's rather the mind set who dictate the invested time in social media, it's right, I agree with you Gemma. But in my sens the invested time is worth it because it create many very interesting contacts across the world.

"

I’m very excited to say that my new book, “Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science”, has just been released!

 

The book is about networked science: the use of online tools to transform the way science is done. In the book I make the case that networked science has the potential to dramatically speed up the rate of scientific discovery, not just in one field, but across all of science. Furthermore, it won’t just speed up discovery, but will actually amplify our collective intelligence, expanding the range of scientific problems which can be attacked at all."

I can't recommend this book highly enough -- six stars on a scale of five. The most detailed, well scaffolded with examples and supporting research, and well-written how-to do collective intelligence in the field of science. It's about open science as much as collective intelligence, but understanding each field illuminates understanding of the other.

This is an important distinction. They are places, not networks. Much like your office, school, university, the place where you usually spend your summer vacation, the pub where your buddies hang out or your hometown.
