The Global Search for Education: Hey Millennials – Are You Loving the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

The Global Search for Education: Hey Millennials – Are You Loving the Fourth Industrial Revolution? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
It’s called the economy of life-long learning – aka the digital age, aka the fourth industrial revolution. And we’re just at the beginning. Newer and newer technologies are creating accelerating changes impacting the way we live, work, produce and consume. Within the next decade, it is expected that more than a trillion sensors will be connected to the Internet. By 2025, 10% of people will be wearing clothes connected to the Internet and the first implantable mobile phone is expected to be sold. Today, tomorrow, in the future – how are we coping and how will all of this transform our lives, including our personal privacy, data security and personal relationships?
Our Millennial Bloggers are based all over the world. They are innovators in entrepreneurship, journalism, education, entertainment, and academic scholarship. This month we asked them: Are you loving the fourth industrial revolution?

Rise of the Robots Requires Rethinking Relationships, Skills and What it Means to be Human

We live in a digital age, a knowledge economy, and the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution. Continually updating technologies are creating accelerated changes that are impacting the way we live, work, produce, and consume at a dramatic rate. Within the next decade, it is expected that more than a trillion sensors will be connected to the Internet. By 2025, 10% of people will be wearing clothes connected to the Internet and the first implantable mobile phone is expected to be sold.
CMRubinWorld asked Millennials around the world to share their perspectives on the 4th Industrial Revolution. “Technology is making skills and knowledge the only source of sustainable strategic advantage. Capitalism will succeed or fail based on the investments it makes in human capital,” states Francisco Hernandez. Reetta Heiskanen echoes this idea and notes: “First and foremost, we have to educate the younger generations with necessary skills. Technology shouldn’t be seen as something that you can’t build yourself. It should be seen as a tool and an approachable part of life that you really can have an effect on.” James Kernochan observes that, “In an ideal world, technology would remove the unpleasant labor from our lives and free up our time for community, and for imaginative pursuits of a wide variety.” Harmony Siganporia suggests that perhaps this is the time to re-imagine “what is meant by the descriptor 'human' itself?”

Report Proposes Ethical Practices for Use of Predictive Analytics in Higher Ed -- Campus Technology

Report Proposes Ethical Practices for Use of Predictive Analytics in Higher Ed -- Campus Technology | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
The productive use of predictive analytics in higher education is almost a foregone conclusion. Being able to predict whether a student will enroll in your institution, stay on track in his or her studies or need extra support to succeed seems like just the kind of data that can help colleges and universities meet their enrollment goals, better target recruiting efforts and more strategically apply their institutional help.

However, the application of data in this way also cries out for a set of ethical practices to prevent its abuse. For example, the same data that can help students succeed could also be used to pinpoint which low-income students not to bother recruiting because their chances of enrollment are smaller than more affluent candidates.

Real-time data on global collaboration networks can support new research and create further connections

Real-time data on global collaboration networks can support new research and create further connections | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Cloud-based technologies provide easier access to the infrastructure and tools needed for research collaboration. The use of these tools can also provide new insights into current collaboration patterns; a picture of what is happening right now rather than what has happened in the past. John Hammersley, reporting on a recent study on research collaboration, considers how this real-time data can be useful in supporting the work of researchers and university libraries. By bringing together communities that form around new cloud-based tools, and local communities that support research within institutions, it is possible to create further connections within both.

Co-Editor Big Data "> LINNET TAYLOR, Tillburg University Assist Professor for Data Ethics, Law and Policy. Tillburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT). _______________________________________________________________________________   Managing Risk in the Digital Society will be the central theme of the 13th International Conference on Internet, Law "> When the concept of risk society was created by Beck and Giddens, Internet and ICT were in a state of embryonic development. Nevertheless, it was already felt that ICT would be one of the paradigmatic fields in terms of the rising complexity of modernity. Three decades after the appearance of this concept, during which risk has been studied and managed, a wide-ranging debate must be opened on the current state of risk in the digital society. Therefore, we must analyse ICT as generators of new risks and assess how society is confronting them; just as we must reflect on how ICT have influenced the perception and treatment of social risks. What uses of technology are associated with specific risks? How does society perceive risks, new and traditional? Are risks an opportunity to change and improve society? How do we anticipate them and who is entitled to regulate them and establish their limits? These and other questions will be the object of the debate within the Conference. The general development of the Internet, and specifically the rise of big data or the Internet of Things, have meant a key step forward for the development of society in issues such as health, security, quality of life, saving time and energy or citizen empowerment, which has brought multiple benefits – big and small – to humanity. Moreover, there are numerous uses of ICT that more or less immediately can pose conflicts in relation to fundamental rights, such as the right to privacy, the right to freedom of expression and information, and even new rights developed within this technological society of risk, such as the right to informational self-determination. We must ask how far the private actors, mainly the big multinationals, can determine the new rules and limits of the development of ICT. We are witnessing a growing phenomenon of self-regulation in which specific sectors establish their own codes of conduct and refer the resolution of possible conflicts to arbitration. Is democratic legitimacy being undermined by these measures? What should the impassable limit on the regulating autonomy of private actors be? Can the market establish its own rules, bearing in mind that in most cases they will be determined by what technology permits? Furthermore, given these new perceptions of risk, the legislator has been expanding criminal law to give a quick response to managing this risk through guarantees so far intrinsic to the criminal systems of the democratic state and rule of law. An increasingly more global society generates new risks that need a political response, from the environmental challenges to the management of phenomena such as migration, terrorism or growing inequality. Moreover, the digital world has accelerated the processes of political transformation, pressuring towards a society that is an ever more interconnected but at the same time disconnected from its main political institutions, which poses new and numerous questions. ICT have opened public spaces that oblige us to rethink the monopoly of the traditional political actors and their relationship with citizens. The digital media has fragmented and revolutionized the panorama of communication beyond the usual public opinion generators. Internet has given way to new forms of protest beyond physical borders, allowing the articulation of new political forces that question the established order. Phenomena such as Wikileaks have made clear the vulnerability of the system when keeping information secret and under control. In short, the digital world opens new spaces and opportunities to rethink the current political order while highlighting the risks and uncertainties.   The twelve previous conferences have consolidated the Conference on Internet, Law "> The Conference on Internet, Law "> For more information about the Conference please contact: idpconference@uoc.edu.
