Research: Technology Is Only Making Social Skills More Important

Research: Technology Is Only Making Social Skills More Important | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"A new NBER working paper suggests it’ll be those that require strong social skills — which it defines as the ability to work with others — something that has proven to be much more difficult to automate. “The Growing Importance of Social Skills in the Labor Market,” shows that nearly all job growth since 1980 has been in occupations that are relatively social skill-intensive — and it argues that high-skilled, hard-to-automate jobs will increasingly demand social adeptness."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, August 27, 2:21 PM

Working with people, using technology, becomes increasingly important as artificial intelligence and intelligence augmentation tools grow more capable. This includes noncognitive skills and more skills that fall into the area of emotional intelligence.

Wi-Fi Aware: What’s It About, And How Can You Use It? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Can you imagine what life would be like without Wi-Fi? Everything is wireless these days, and we've evolved so far beyond the point of being hardwired that cables almost feel primitive.

Plan hatched to build "Lord of the Rings" city in England

Plan hatched to build "Lord of the Rings" city in England | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Though usually associated more with Middle-earth than Middle England, a plan is afoot to build the fictional city of Minas Tirith from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings – or Peter Jackson's movie depiction of it, anyway – in the UK. Of course, one does not simply build a fantastical city without funds, and the team hopes to raise £1.85 billion (US$2.9 billion) during a 60 day Indiegogo campaign.

According to the Realise Minas Tirith crowdfunding page, the blue-sky scheme was conceived by an ambitious group of architects and engineers who love all things Tolkien and enjoy Jackson's depiction of Minas Tirith. The team, headed by Jonathan Wilson, hopes to create a fully-functioning city somewhere in southern England (two unnamed sites are currently under consideration) that would serve as tourist attraction, and a place to live and work.

The city would include residential and commercial spaces, and operate with a total budget of £1.85 bn. To break this down, £1.4 bn ($2.1 bn) is earmarked for materials – Black Stone and Mithril doesn't come cheap after all – while £15 m ($23 m) is estimated for land, and £188 m ($290 m) for labor. Whatever's left would be used to run maintenance and public services until 2053.

Eter9 social network learns your personality so it can post as you when you're dead

Eter9 social network learns your personality so it can post as you when you're dead | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
New site Eter9 promises digital immortality using a kind of artificial intelligence to scan your posts.

It will then continue posting online for you after death. Yes, it's the creepiest thing we've learned today too.

If your social activity consists of posts about Taylor Swift and complaints to train companies, it means you can post for eternity on these topics.

You can also "smile" at things, similar to likes, forever.

And there is both a main page which works like Facebook's newsfeed and a "cortex" which works like your Facebook profile.

There are also bots called Niners who you can adopt.

This means the social network can keep its engagement levels up via bots and counterparts interacting with no humans at all.

And you can meet your social media mirror image before you die too.

Users control the level of activity of their counterpart while alive, allowing it to post whilst they are offline.

Set up by Portuguese developer Henrique Jorge, it's still in beta testing mode but there are around 5,000 people signed up at the moment.

But Jorge tells Newsbeat that users are joining every day and he has plans in place to make the system more powerful.

"We are trying to create an AI system that learns faster from other networks like Facebook, as the ETER9 information at the moment is quite small."

"We understand people’s concerns about their personal information and are 100 percent committed to protecting our users’ privacy and ensuring that you have control over the information you share." Of course the overwhelming majority of users will be giving that all away when they "accept" the update w/o paying attention, as usual.
