Autonomous Vehicles: A Disruption Case Study

Autonomous Vehicles: A Disruption Case Study | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
At a recent news conference, U.S. federal transportation officials described Talking Cars and their ability to avoid deadly crashes by seeing it coming before you do. The U.S. government will likel...
Frank Diana's insight:

Disruption is an over used word - but it is really an appropriate word to describe the environment we find ourselves in. Looking at possible future scenarios helps us identify possible disruption. In this post, the autonomous car is the scenario used to explore a disruption case study.

Intersections Promise to Drive Multiple Paradigm Shifts

Intersections Promise to Drive Multiple Paradigm Shifts | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Since the time I completed this post on Disruptive Power and Intersections, it continues to receive attention. It is by far the most effective component of any Future Thinking effort. Given the continued traffic to this two year old post, I am updating with current content. By way of reminder, the anchor emerging futures visual…
Frank Diana's insight:
As the number of value creating building blocks multiply, the number of potential combinations expand. This combinatorial effect is one of the engines of exponential progression. This puts a premium on connecting dots and seeing the intersections - ultimately delivering innovation speed

The Experience Journey Gets Complicated

The Experience Journey Gets Complicated | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
My ongoing work on emerging future scenarios has driven a renewed focus on experience. Several factors are converging to shift the experience end game; specifically, the evolution of Ecosystems and the transformation of Interaction. These two forces – themselves the result of combinatorial innovation – are converging. While the way we interact continues to shift, a parallel…

THE TRANSFORMATION OF INTERACTION

THE TRANSFORMATION OF INTERACTION | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Back in 2013, as Smartphone use was growing, I wrote about Next Generation Experiences; viewing customer experience through a lens of constant change, where failure to address foundational elements meant falling further behind. Since then, our mode of interaction witnessed a third transformation, as touch became a critical piece of our everyday experiences. Now, we…

As Marshall indicates in the post, it’s already happening. He uses Aquila – the Facebook Internet beaming drone – as an example. Instead of beaming down internet access in a big dumb cone of connectivity, it will use deep learning to analyze photos of small patches of earth for evidence of human life.  Then they prioritize those relatively few places that they believe people will be.

Artificial Intelligence Intersects with Smart Cities

Artificial Intelligence Intersects with Smart Cities | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
“An interesting example is the use of acoustic sensors that are calibrated to detect gunshots. Some cities in the United States have deployed these sensors in areas of gun violence and discovered some shocking information. Police departments had historically assumed that residents called the police 80% of the time when shots were heard. And thus the police thought they had a fairly accurate measure of street gun violence. In San Francisco, after the sensors were in place, the police discovered that residents called the police only 10% of the time when shots were heard. In Oakland, California, the 911 call rate for shots fired was only 22%. Prior to the sensors, these police departments were operating on highly inaccurate information about the level of gun violence in certain neighborhoods. With this new information, police can now plan their patrols differently and better target areas to reduce gun violence.”
