Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, October 3, 2013 8:15 PM

As the convergence of digital technologies drives unprecedented levels of change in global marketplaces, it is very much a reality that a company must, as Bill Gates put it, “innovate or die!” In the race for relevance to future customers, the greater a company’s innovation capacity, the greater its chance of success.


So how does a firm build its power and agility in innovation? The answer is simple and, to my mind, obvious – yet, it is not the direction in which most innovation-seeking firms seem to be channeling their efforts.

Local SMEs must wake up if they want to innovate and find a competitive edge. Do not stinge on compensation!

Brian Martin's curator insight, October 5, 2013 12:02 PM

A great reinforcement on why investing in employees and leaders is critical to sustain long term competetive advantage!

We the business owners, directors and managers set the tone for excellence by our words and deeds.

Awesome article on productivity!

Tia Ribary's curator insight, October 29, 2013 1:54 PM

Increasing productivity means you get more with what you have. That's why I love improving efficiency so much. It does the same thing!

 

This article outlines 6 steps business owners and managers can take to do just that: do more with what thay have. And, I'm a bit torn...is #3 or #6 my favorite? They are both highly impacting, and I believe they are often overlooked.

 

My challenge to you: pick just one step to implement and watch how it impacts your business...in a great way!

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch?

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch? | composites | Scoop.it

It has been claimed that Mankind's last great invention will be the first self-replicating intelligent machine. The Hollywood cliché that artificial intelligence will take over the world could soon become scientific reality as AI matches then surpasses human intelligence. Each year AI’s cognitive speed and power doubles — ours does not. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI’s Holy Grail — human-level intelligence. Scientists argue that AI that advanced will have survival drives much like our own. Can we share the planet with it and survive?

Our Final Invention, a brilliant new summary of the last 15 years of academic research on risks from advanced AI by James Barrat, explores how the pursuit of Artificial Intelligence challenges our existence with machines that won’t love us or hate us, but whose indifference could spell our doom. Until now, intelligence has been constrained by the physical limits of its human hosts. What will happen when the brakes come off the most powerful force in the universe?
