I want this technology right now. Tracing objects in 3D from a single photo.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Awesome tech shared by Erik de Bruijn on google plus. This is awesome powerful stuff however the only hurdle now is to extrapulate the internal structure of those objects. If that too could occur (don't ask me how) 3D modeling and printing will become so much more accessible to everyone.

A View From The Cave: Politics and design thinking: more in common than you think

A View From The Cave: Politics and design thinking: more in common than you think | Entrepreneurship and Venturing education | Scoop.it
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Abstracting a level: the link between these two fields is that both grapple with complexity in a pragmatic way. When they’re at their best — avoiding the lofty idealism of political rhetoric or the techno-utopianism of designers — both fields find ways to act and create progress in a confusing world. They both avoid the detached analysis-paralysis of academia and the temptation to build grand theories from simplistic assumptions (I’m looking at you, rational-choice theory). Politics and design both live in the messy middle.

No Relationship, No Leadership

No Relationship, No Leadership | Entrepreneurship and Venturing education | Scoop.it
Have you ever heard the saying "It's lonely at the top?" It's been said so often that some people in leadership positions actually believe that it should be lonely at the top. Nothing could be...
gideon.shimshon's insight:

A leader’s relationship with their people needs to be “real.” As a leader, you need to know something about the people you lead. You can’t lead someone effectively until you know something about them. You can’t demonstrate that you care about them unless you can first demonstrate that you actually know them…. as a person.

Thinking critically on critical thinking: why scientists' skills need to spread (ScienceAlert)

Thinking critically on critical thinking: why scientists' skills need to spread (ScienceAlert) | Entrepreneurship and Venturing education | Scoop.it
The thinking that develops with science education needs to be taught to everyone, argues Rachel Grieve.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

For those engaging with science, learning the skills needed to be a critical consumer of information is invaluable. But should these skills remain in the domain of scientists? Clearly not: for those engaging with life, being a critical consumer of information is also invaluable, allowing informed judgement.

Leadership Traits - Creativity - Creativity For Life

Leadership Traits - Creativity - Creativity For Life | Entrepreneurship and Venturing education | Scoop.it
Creativity is essential in remaining relevant in a business world now characterized by fast pace and rapid change. It is needed to stay ahead of competition that has become more and more global and cutthroat.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

So, can leadership creativity be developed and nurtured? I believe so, yes. Consider the following suggestions:

Generate lots of ideas. Look not only for the commonplace, but for the truly innovative, game-changing, and transformational. Originality is the key here.Experiment with the good ideas. Always look to go from good-to-great. Don’t be dissuaded by the fear of failure. Thomas Edison viewed each failure as one step closer to success.Be a passionate advocate of creativity and originality. Never remain satisfied with the status quo. Become an organization of learners and creative problem solvers.Protect the truly creative. Some individuals who have astonishing creative gifts are often viewed as nerds or social outcasts, perhaps worse. Make sure their contributions are recognized and shared, and that their value to the team is understood and appreciated.Inspire others. Share the wins on how creative approaches set the competition back on its heels. Dissect the failures and disseminate the lessons learned. Distribute the credit liberally and unselfishly.

"If P = NP, then the world would be a profoundly different place than we usually assume it to be. There would be no special value in 'creative leaps,' no fundamental gap between solving a problem and recognizing the solution once it’s found. Everyone who could appreciate a symphony would be Mozart; everyone who could follow a step-by-step argument would be Gauss — Scott Aaronson, MIT

Eerste Honours Café: groot succes! - Nieuws en Agenda - Onderwijs | Entrepreneurship and Venturing education | Scoop.it
De Universiteit Leiden is een internationaal geörienteerde universiteit met een breed palet aan talentgericht onderwijs voor goede en gemotiveerde studenten, dat wordt geïnspireerd door wetenschappelijk onderzoek.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Na een woord van welkom, mocht Sjoerd Louwaars van het Centre for Innovation van de Campus Den Haag aftrappen met zijn voorstel voor het vak ‘Attacking Complexity’. Hierin leren studenten als ‘ondernemers, in teams complexe maatschappelijke problemen aan te pakken en innovatie te stimuleren. Met een aantrekkelijk verhaal maakte Louwaars de zaal enthousiast over zijn vak dat zal plaatsvinden in het Living Lab van het Centre for Innovation, in Den Haag. Het vak werd goed ontvangen bij het publiek, maar vragen waren er nog over onder andere de toetsing van het vak en de tijdsduur van drie maanden leek sommigen wat aan de korte kant. Toen afsluitend gevraagd werd hoeveel studenten het vak zouden willen volgen,  bleek dat meer dan de helft van de aanwezigen geïnteresseerd zou zijn.

One of the ways Badgeville says it’s doing that is with a game it created for Expedia.com called Around the World in 100 Days, which Expedia plans to introduce in the coming weeks. Designed to get travelers more engaged with the Web site and Expedia’s loyalty program, the game begins with an introductory video. Then, players are asked to choose one of eight avatars and to select the type of travel experience that most appeals to them (city slicker, adventure addict, escape artist or culture buff).
