African Bus Routes Redrawn Using Cell-Phone Data

Researchers at IBM, using movement data collected from millions of cell-phone users in Ivory Coast in West Africa, have developed a new model for optimizing an urban transportation system.

The IBM model prescribed changes in bus routes around the around Abidjan, the nation’s largest city. These changes—based on people’s movements as discerned from cell-phone records—could, in theory, slash travel times 10 percent.

The Age of Networked Matter

In the next ten years we will enter the Age of Networked Matter, in which the connections between biology and machinery are brought to the forefront and we begin to rethink our roles in the world. Robots will form their own social networks, chairs will be digitally-rights managed, microbes will talk to kitchens, and every object will be six degrees away from the rest of the world.

Technology isn’t working

Technology isn’t working | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

The digital revolution has yet to fulfill its promise of higher productivity and better jobs. 

 

This report from The Economist states that new technology haven't boosted productivity (apart from a brief period between 1996 and 2004). This is known as the Solow paradox.

The Rise of the Digital Bank

The Rise of the Digital Bank | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

As European consumers move online, retail banks will have to follow. The problem is that most banks aren’t ready. 

 

Neither customers nor digital upstarts are likely to wait for retail banks to catch up. Recent analysis shows that over the next five years, more than two-thirds of banking customers in Europe are likely to be “self-directed” and highly adapted to the online world. In fact, these same consumers already take great advantage of digital technologies in other industries—booking flights and holidays, buying books and music, and increasingly shopping for groceries and other goods via digital channels. Once a credible digital-banking proposition exists, customer adoption will be breathtakingly fast and digital laggards will be left exposed.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 17, 8:47 PM

Across Europe, retail banks have digitized only 20 to 40 percent of their processes; 90 percent of European banks invest less than 0.5 percent of their total spending on digital. As a result, most have relatively shallow digital offerings focused on enabling basic customer transactions.

Systems Thinking and the Future of Cities

Systems Thinking and the Future of Cities | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

The idea that nothing exists in isolation−but only as part of a system−has long been embedded in folklore, religious scriptures, and common sense. Yet, systems dynamics as a science has yet to transform the way we conduct the public business. This article first briefly explores the question of why advances in systems theory have failed to transform public policy. The second part describes the ways in which our understanding of systems is growing−not so much from theorizing, but from practical applications in agriculture, building design, and medical science. The third part focuses on whether and how that knowledge and systems science can be deployed to improve urban governance in the face of rapid climate destabilization so that sustainability becomes the norm, not the occasional success story.

Timely focus on the critical role of thinking systemically as a leader...

Jason Leong's curator insight, September 29, 4:15 AM

"Despite the inherent logic of systems thinking, governments, corporations, foundations, universities, and non-profit organizations still work mostly by breaking issues and problems into their separate parts and dealing with each in isolation. Separate agencies, departments, and organizations specialize in energy, land, food, air, water, wildlife, economy, finance, building regulations, urban policy, technology, health, and transportation−as if each were unrelated to the others. So, one agency pushes hard to grow the economy while another is charged to clean up the resulting mess and so forth, which is to say that the right hand and left hand seldom knows−or cares−what the other is doing. The results are often counter-productive, overly expensive, risky, sometimes disastrous, and most always ironic."
