It´s all About Connections, Tagging, Conversations, Filtering, Networks | Complex Management | Scoop.it

My point is that if we use social bookmarking frequently, it becomes a mechanic process. Every time you see something interesting, we press the “share button”, add as many tags, keywords as we can think of, and that’s it. We’ll filter the information later on, no need to deal with it right now. Even if this process doesn’t save time right now. In the future, when you need to retrieve information for any kind of project, and if you have bookmarked it before, the whole process could be a time saver.

Global computational intelligence

Global computational intelligence | Complex Management | Scoop.it

So what would it mean for us?

For a person – start feeling as part of the whole body or real-time sensor/motor cell of entire humanity organism, with every your search query, email, chat message or mouse click making it a bit more clever and strong, and every your action to some extent inspired by it.

For software developers – get ready for emerging market of intellectual agent software (with first lonely players like Siri, Google Now and Sherpa), either keeping in mind business model of a «pilot fish», operating in biocenosis with one of the «Big Sharks» or having a good exit strategy for the case when your functionality may get on the way of some of major players (like it has happened to Yandex Wonder).

For business – for competitive business promotion, understand how to craft «double-sided» web pages looking attractive for fellow people on one side and rich of true semantic markup on the other side. That kind of markup, invisible to human eye (see http://schema.org/ for more details) is to be indexed by «semantic crawler» at Google, collecting the thought-food for its Knowledge Graph — so that your site could get returned to user as single right answer on user's query, instead of being on 10th row of second page of search results.

For government – be clear that ability to enable national projects of intellectual globalization might turn into a key for national security in the very close future. That does not necessarily mean any governmental funding of certain developments, as we have seen couple business enterprises managed to capture the third of the world in few years, so the most efficient option would be creation of appropriate business environments for high technology and information technology businesses within national borders.

For humanity – get ready to pass through the next (since invention of computers and internet) pivotal point of development, with all coming surprises, frustrations and openings of new opportunities.

For evolution – prepare to record forthcoming meta-system transition (since assembly of atoms in the molecule, molecules in the cell, cells into organism and neurons in the brain) in the Universe's diary book.

Big Data Needs a Big Theory to Go with It

Big Data Needs a Big Theory to Go with It | Complex Management | Scoop.it

As the world becomes increasingly complex and interconnected, some of our biggest challenges have begun to seem intractable. What should we do about uncertainty in the financial markets? How can we predict energy supply and demand? How will climate change play out? How do we cope with rapid urbanization? Our traditional approaches to these problems are often qualitative and disjointed and lead to unintended consequences. To bring scientific rigor to the challenges of our time, we need to develop a deeper understanding of complexity itself.

My contribution to the first pamphleteer, which focused on ‘Future & Smart Cities’ is dealing with the balance between technology companies, engineers and scientists and the values, needs and wishes of the wider society. In particular, I suggest the potential of citizen science in opening up some of the black boxes of smart cities to wider societal control. ...

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.

Life in the City Is Essentially One Giant Math Problem

Life in the City Is Essentially One Giant Math Problem | Complex Management | Scoop.it

Glen Whitney stands at a point on the surface of the Earth, north latitude 40.742087, west longitude 73.988242, which is near the center of Madison Square Park, in New York City. Behind him is the city’s newest museum, the Museum of Mathematics, which Whitney, a former Wall Street trader, founded and now runs as executive director. He is facing one of New York’s landmarks, the Flatiron Building, which got its name because its wedge- like shape reminded people of a clothes iron. Whitney observes that from this perspective you can’t tell that the building, following the shape of its block, is actually a right triangle—a shape that would be useless for pressing clothes—although the models sold in souvenir shops represent it in idealized form as an isosceles, with equal angles at the base. People want to see things as symmetrical, he muses. He points to the building’s narrow prow, whose outline corresponds to the acute angle at which Broadway crosses Fifth Avenue.

 

“The cross street here is 23rd Street,” Whitney says, “and if you measure the angle at the building’s point, it is close to 23 degrees, which also happens to be approximately the angle of inclination of the Earth’s axis of rotation.”
