The Future of Work

The Future of Work | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it

For the past 50 years, organisations have essentially been variations of a hierarchical model. This will change fundamentally this decade.

 

The future organisation will be all about people, in the context of factors like globalisation, the economy, technology and a growing individualistic society.

 

Four factors will impact future organisations. They are globalisation, the economy, technology and growing individualism.

How To Leverage the Science of Relationships to Gain True Influence

How To Leverage the Science of Relationships to Gain True Influence | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it

If you define influence by the size of your Klout score, you can stop reading this right now.

 

If you believe influence is driven by the creation of a relationship between two parties, where one sees the other as truly knowledgeable about a particular product or service, then let’s talk about the science behind that influence.

You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week.

Mariana Soffer's insight:

When you deal with such complex systems as a living organism, and indeed the whole web of life, there are critical points where change is sudden and decisive. These come to the fore already when we simulate the dynamics of such systems: then we see that in place of the usual periodic and point attractors, so-called “chaotic” or “strange” attractors surface—practically out of the blue, as the systems analysts note.

Culture & Consume

Culture & Consume | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
Mariana Soffer's insight:

We have to create our culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to the radio. Create your own show on the air. The space and time where you are located are the closer sector or the universe, and if you're worrying celebrities, then you are disempowered , you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so sometimes in order to make you dress like them, act like them, etc. What is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your lows, your hopes, your plans, your fears. We feel we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get ...' And then you're a player in a game you don[t want to play,  You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural mechanisms that turn you into a half-baked person consuming all that is given to you.

Reform vs Re-Engineering: Why Our Education System Resists Change

Reform vs Re-Engineering: Why Our Education System Resists Change | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
Mariana Soffer's insight:

For starters, bottom up change requires a value system that fosters integrity and respect for what and how we learn.  This is the personalization of learning which starkly contrasts with todays institutionalized one-size fits all approach.  In essence, if you cheat the students, the students will cheat.  Personalization requires that students have access to their own and shared learning profiles that value their identity and builds their social capital.   Their stock of social trust- the norms that each student can draw upon to solve common problems.

Open the Future: The End of the World As We Know It (and I'm rather annoyed)

Open the Future: The End of the World As We Know It (and I'm rather annoyed) | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it

While it’s certainly true that one can tell a compelling dramatic story about the end of the world, as a mechanism of foresight, apocaphilia is trite at best, counter-productive at worst. Yet world-ending scenarios are easy to find, especially coming from advocates for various social-economic-global changes. As one of those advocates, I’m well aware of the need to avoid taking the easy route of wearing a figurative sign reading The End Is Nigh. We want people to take the risks we describe seriously, so there is an understandable temptation to stretch a challenging forecast to its horrific extremes--but ultimately, it’s a bad idea. - See more at: http://www.openthefuture.com/2013/05/the_end_of_the_world_as_we_kno.html#sthash.XTFgGYMm.dpuf

Headline "Douglas C. Engelbart, Inventor of the Computer Mouse, Dies at 88"

This is as if you found the person who invented writing, and credited them for inventing the pencil. 
...
His system, called NLS, showed actual instances of, or precursors to, hypertext, shared screen collaboration, multiple windows, on-screen video teleconferencing, and the mouse as an input device.

I agree that you have to have the right person(s) to interact with your customers, because if you as the first paragraph states above when it asks the question, would you put a rude staff member or as I put it an unattentive staff member at your front door? Well, I won't anymore, because if you do, this could mean your story going nowhere and eventually you lose your audience and so on, and so, yes, I agree that you need a powerful and great marketing team, one who is willing at all costs to help you promote your fiction book, biography, poem or whatever you are marketing in order to have a great product that sells beyond!

Can Patents Keep Up with Technology?: How do we recognize an invention when we see one? | #patentTrolls

Can Patents Keep Up with Technology?: How do we recognize an invention when we see one? | #patentTrolls | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
How do we recognize an invention when we see one?

-

The U.S. patent system is a popular target. Recently we have heard that big portfolios of large companies pose a threat to small inventors, “patent trolls” who exist solely to sue real companies have hijacked the marketplace for new ideas and colossal lawsuits prove that America's patent system is broken.

The patent system is indeed in the midst of a challenge. Software technology gives us the GPS in our mobile devices, CT scans that provide early health diagnostics, and other wonders, but circumscribing such technologies in a patent is difficult. Advances in genetics and biotech are critically important to treating many diseases and require huge investments that rely on patent protection, but it is often hard to know where the rights of the inventors end and the public's begin. Should 3-D print files be eligible for patent prosecution? What breadth of protection should be available for the algorithms that extract knowledge from enormous aggregations of data? Each fundamental advance calls for reexamination and adaptation, which is why the patent system is, and must be, the subject of continuous improvement.

luiy's curator insight, May 31, 2013 10:06 AM

Beyond first-to-file, the AIA also responds to concerns about the quality of issued patents by providing cost-effective, fast ways to comment on pending patents and to challenge issued ones. These new opportunities apply to all patent applications and patents but are especially helpful in software, where historical references are difficult to find, and in biotech, where fine lines must be drawn between discoveries eligible for protection and ones free for all to use. Still, the AIA has only recently gone into effect, and the ramifications of its new processes and procedures are just beginning to be felt. As Scientific American's March 9, 1878, issue stated, “our Patent Office [is] a great National University, whose diplomas of merit for successful endeavor [are] infinitely more valuable than those of any college.” This statement is still true.

Education & Transformation

Education & Transformation | Artificial G. Intelligence | Scoop.it
Mariana Soffer's insight:

Education systems is  antiquated and isolated from the flow and process of society.


It has become painfully apparent that our education system was build to meet the economic needs of a former era. In many ways, we live in completely new economic conditions that would have been unrecognizable to Adam Smith or even Maynard Keynes. Our existence as consumers is generally characterized by plenty, not by scarcity; and the productive function of properly trained individuals now constitutes a new form of labor that we will ignore or fail to develop at our competitive peril. We interact with economic systems as individuals to a far greater degree than ever before, and our biometrics and identity parameters have become important elements in these interactions.
