What is Wirearchy ?

What is Wirearchy ? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
We all know and understand hierarchy - the enduring principle of the institutions that govern us and in which we work and live.
Jon Husband presents us a new emerging organizational principle, called Wirearchy.

The Internet is connecting customers, employees and communities and empowering them with information in ways never before possible. Taking decisions and managing organized activities are being impacted in powerful ways by interconnected networks of people and technology.

The impacts we're experiencing are creating new dynamics in organizations as well as emergent forms of organized activities that are based on participation and peer-to-peer interaction. As people get used to operating in these new conditions, often (but not always) the results are nimble, responsive, and results-focused networked groups and teams.

The new interconnected environment demands new principles for organizing collaborative activity. Traditional hierarchy does not lead and support networked activity as well as newer forms and principles.

And ... over the last ten years, it has become quite clear that the impacts of these living social networks will only grow, both in depth and reach.

The Third Wave of AI – Becoming Human

The Third Wave of AI – Becoming Human | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

Over the decades, combinations of various programming techniques have enabled slow spotty progress in AI — punctuated by occasional breakthroughs such as certain expert, decision and planning systems, and mastering Chess and Jeopardy! These approaches, and in particular those focused on symbolic representations, are generally referred to as GOFAI (Good Old-Fashioned AI). Importantly, a key characteristic that they share is that applications are hand-crafted and custom engineered: Programmers figure out how to solve a particular problem, then turning their insights into code. This essentially represents the ‘First Wave’.

Certainly, all the world around, everybody relies on technology more than they imagine or want. This is an interesting report to explore the challenges of this new reality.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 10, 2:36 PM
Supporting the development of digital skills is complex. Initiatives are often context specific and reliant on partnerships. In addition, the environment must be fertile for initiatives to flourish. Policy makers, education leaders, industry and the individual all have a role in equitable digital skills development.

10 imperatives for Europe in the age of AI and automation - #service #design | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Europe, while making progress, is behind the US and China in capturing the opportunities of artificial intelligence and automation. Digitization is everywhere, but adoption is uneven across companies, sectors, and economies, and the leaders are capturing most of the benefits. Accelerating progress in AI and automation now bring further opportunities for users, businesses, and the economy.…

Exploring the Ethical and Social Implications of AI

Exploring the Ethical and Social Implications of AI | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
“People attribute mental states, desires and beliefs to things that don’t have them," said Vallor, which opens the door to vulnerability, manipulations and deceit.

AI is inherently hungry for data, so it wants to keep you engaged, according to Vallor. This can create problems, like people becoming more engaged with AI than with other humans.

Imagine an artificial agent following you around saying, "I am lonely. I'm bored. Could you talk to me about movies you like?" The end result, in some situations, could yield time taken away from spouses, children and friends. And, of course, greater amounts of data for marketers who want to manipulate you to get your money.

"We need to think about the way we interact with these systems. We, without thinking, develop emotional and morally-laden relationships with artifacts. This will take-off very quickly and have consequences we didn't expect," said Vallor.

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 14, 5:10 AM

Robert Shiller, the Nobel-winning author who predicted the two biggest speculative markets in recent history, is repeating that bitcoin is in a bubble.The cryptocurrency is "the best example right now," Shiller told Quartz's John Detrixhe in an interview published Tuesday. In January 2014 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he called the cryptocurrency "an amazing example of a bubble," adding that there was "no question about it."  Bitcoin has exploded in price and popularity since then. Bitcoin was at $4,337 on Tuesday, or about 442% over its price in January 2014 of about $800 a coin.

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
I’ve said before the first 3 hours of your day can dictate how your life turns out. And this often begins with the very first thing that you decide to put in your brain. You can either start you day with junk food for the brain (the internet, distracting apps, etc) or you can start the day with healthy food for the brain (reading, meditation, journaling, exercising, etc). When you start the day with junk food for the brain, you put yourself at a self imposed handicap that inhibits your ability to get into flow and prevents you from doing deep work. When you start the day with health food for your brain, the exact opposite happens.

"Anytime I start my day with junk food for the brain, the quality of the day goes down. I’m less happy, focused, and productive. I spend a ton of time on the internet and don’t get any real work done. But if I start my day with health food for the brain, I find that my mood is better, I’m happier, more focused and productive."

This fall Pearson introduced an “immersive digital learning tool” called Revel that reimagines the textbook as a multimedia experience replete with videos, interactive exercises, and animated infographics. The goal, Pearson’s Stephen Frail tells me, is to make the course materials “more compelling than Facebook,” which after all is only “one click away” whenever a student is doing coursework on her computer or tablet.

How Technologies Will Shape Business in the Future


Innovation is transforming the personal technology space, and many companies now have digital initiatives linked with employee performance and behavior. It's clear such technologies will play an important role in driving digital business over the next few years, so technology leaders must start paying attention now, said Annette Jump, research director for Gartner Research. Gartner's "Top 10 Personal Technologies to Support Digital Business" report predicts that project outcomes will be most affected by virtual personal assistants (VPAs), machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), as well as immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). Other technologies that will come into play include wearables, 3D printing, location sensing and tracking, and chatbots—all of will enable optimization of multiple business functions and transformational change in operations. VPAs, biometrics authentication, wireless power, 3D cameras and location sensing will allow organizations to improve usability, security and user experience for employees and customers. Gartner recommends that IT managers identify projects and scenarios for immersive experiences around training, simulations, modeling, telepresence, and product and brand marketing. It also suggests that companies embed 3D cameras into smartphones, tablets and PCs, as well as smart TVs and monitors. That will enable new usage models around gesture and facial recognition for biometric authentication and for measuring objects. Finally, integrating AI to analyze customer data, location and context can improve targeted marketing and customer experience management
