The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis | Educational News | Scoop.it
Excerpted from this interesting article by Brian Solis:
"While the amount of personal and ambient information churned out by SoLoMo is often inundating or even perplexing, it is this “big” data that will help businesses evolve and adapt in a new era of connected consumerism. More importantly, the study and understanding of relevant big data will shift organizations from simply reacting to trends to predicting the next disruption and adapting ahead of competition—thus, marking the shift from rigid to adaptive business models.

Without interpretation, insight and the ability to put knowledge to work, any investment in technology and resources is premature. But, by investing in human capital to make sense of would be ominous data, organizations can modernize the role of business intelligence to introduce a human touch.

The reality is though that how organizations connected with customers yesterday is not how customers will be served tomorrow. Meaning, the entire infrastructure in how we market, sell, help, and create now requires companies to not only study data and behavior but also change how it thinks about customers.

I refer to the confluence of data and interpretation as the human algorithm—the ability to humanize technology and data to put a face, personality, and voice to the need and chance for change. Data tells a story, it just needs help finding its rhythm and rhyme.

The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.

The idea of the human algorithm is to serve as the human counterpart to the abundance of new social intelligence and listening platforms hitting the market every day. Someone has to be on the other side of data to interpret it beyond routine..."

L'algorithme de l'homme: Redéfinir la valeur des données | Brian SolisDe www.briansolis.com - Décembre 21, 2012 13:33

Extrait de cet article intéressant par Brian Solis: 
«Bien que la quantité de renseignements personnels et la température ambiante égrenée par SoLoMo est souvent inondé, voire perplexe, c'est ce« gros »des données qui aideront les entreprises évoluent et s'adaptent à une nouvelle ère du consumérisme connecté . Plus important encore, l'étude et la compréhension des données pertinentes grandes organisations se déplacera de se contenter de réagir aux tendances de prédire la rupture prochaine et l'adaptation d'avance sur la concurrence ainsi, marquant le passage d'rigide pour les modèles d'affaires adaptés. Sans interprétation, la perspicacité et la capacité d'appliquer les connaissances acquises, tout investissement dans la technologie et les ressources est prématurée. Mais, en investissant dans le capital humain de donner un sens serait de mauvais augure de données, les entreprises peuvent moderniser le rôle de l'intelligence d'affaires pour introduire une touche humaine. La réalité est cependant que comment les organisations liées aux clients d'hier n'est pas la façon dont les clients seront servis demain. Signification, toute l'infrastructure dans notre façon de commercialiser, de vendre, d'aider et de créer des entreprises exige maintenant que les données de l'étude et le comportement non seulement, mais aussi changer la façon dont il pense les clients. Je me réfère à la confluence des données et l'interprétation que l'algorithme de la capacité humaine à humaniser la technologie et les données de mettre un visage, la personnalité et la voix de la nécessité et de possibilité de changement. Données raconte une histoire, il a juste besoin d'aide pour trouver son rythme et la rime. L'algorithme de compréhension humaine est partie et de la communication une partie. La capacité de communiquer et d'appliquer des connaissances à l'interne et l'externe est la clé pour débloquer des possibilités de gagner leur pertinence. Au-delà de la recherche, au-delà de l'intelligence, l'algorithme humain est une fonction d'extraction des connaissances avec intention , l'humanisation des possibilités tendances publicitaires et de travailler avec les stratèges d'améliorer et d'innover tout de processus pour les produits à des expériences globales. L'idée de l'algorithme de l'homme est de servir l'homologue humain de l'abondance de l'intelligence sociale nouvelle et plates-formes d'écoute arrivent sur le marché chaque jour . Quelqu'un doit être de l'autre côté des données de l'interpréter au-delà de la routine ... »Lire l'article complet originale ici: http://www.briansolis.com/2012/12/the-human-algorithm-redefining-the- Value-of-data /

President Obama’s enough-is-enough Newtown speech

President Obama’s enough-is-enough Newtown speech | Educational News | Scoop.it
by CHRIS CILLIZZA, The Washington Post

President Obama’s speech Sunday night at a memorial service for the victims — mostly children — of a mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut was a forceful assertion that the politics surrounding guns (and gun control) must change.

“We can’t tolerate this anymore,” Obama said. “We are not doing enough and we will have to change.”

Obama noted that this was the fourth time in his presidency that he has had to grieve with a community after an incident of mass murder with a gun. But, his speech in Connecticut Sunday was a significant departure from the other addresses he had given to communities torn apart by shooting sprees.

Speaking in Aurora, Colorado just days after a gunman opened fire in a movie theater this summer, Obama was somber, subdued — and decidedly apolitical. The closest Obama got to making a statement (of any sort) came in the speech’s last line in which he said: “I hope that over the next several days, next several weeks, and next several months, we all reflect on how we can do something about some of the senseless violence that ends up marring this country, but also reflect on all the wonderful people who make this the greatest country on Earth.”

It was a very different Obama who took the stage at the Newtown memorial Sunday, a president not just saddened by the tragedy but fed up with the lack of forward movement in hopes of preventing the next one.

One sentence in Obama’s speech sums up his state of mind. “I’ll use whatever power this office holds…in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this,” he said — a line the incumbent never came close to uttering in Aurora or, before that, in Tucson in 2011.
