Beyond Big Data: Identifying Important Information for Real World Challenges | NECSI

Beyond Big Data: Identifying Important Information for Real World Challenges | NECSI | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Via Lorien Pratt
Joe Boutte's insight:

This important paper which cuts through the hype of big data and focuses on complex systems, universality, and behaviors if helpful for understanding complex organizations and insightful for forming leadership strategies.

Lorien Pratt's curator insight, January 3, 2014 9:17 PM

A landmark paper and the most accessible treatment I've seen on why more data does not produce better decisions.


"Consider a block sliding down an inclined plane. To address the micro scale—the molecules—we average over them and, using thermodynamics, describe their temperature and pressure. To address the macro scale—the block and the inclined plane—we use Newtonian physics to talk about their large scale motion (see Fig. 2). In this case, the pieces can be considered to be acting either independently (the random relative motion on the micro scale) or coherently (the average motion on the macro scale) and since the scales ares ufficiently distinct we do not encounter a problem in describing them separately.


But many systems, especially those we are interested in understanding and influencing, are not well described by two separate levels. Consider a flock of birds as it leaves a tree in response to a crack of thunder. If all of the birds flew independently in different directions, we would need to describe each one separately. If they instead all went in the same direction, we could simply describe their average motion. On the other hand, if we were interested in how the birds move from the initial mostly independent directions of movement, into groups and then came together as a flock, describing each bird’s motion would be too much information and describing the average would be too little information."


This is the press release. The paper is here: http://www.necsi.edu/projects/yaneer/information/infoimportance.pdf

Joe Boutte's comment, January 4, 2014 10:23 AM
Absolutely thought-provoking, applicable article for understanding the power and limitations of datas and analytics. Rips through the hype of "big data" to provide a focus on understanding universality. I particularly find the idea of selecting the relevant variables and understanding the same number of states as the system being evaluated, which enables the states to be mapped to the states of the system. As the authors posit, “If a model has fewer states than the system, then it can’t represent everything that is happening in the system. If a model has more states, then it is representing things that can’t happen in the system.” Thanks for sharing this important paper and research.
Joe Boutte's comment, January 4, 2014 10:33 AM
This statement cut to the heart of the issue: "as an effort to objectively determine what is important and unimportant rather than collecting as much information as possible is a means for advancing our understanding and addressing many practical biological and social challenges." Thanks again!

An Amazing Timeline Chronicling The History of Social Media

An Amazing Timeline Chronicling The History of Social Media | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leadership also means being aware of the technology that enhances how we influence people.  According to this infographic, social media has been around since 1969.  I would posit that social media has been around since the printing press was invented.  Although early media was not interactive, it accelerated communications and person-to-person interaction.  We're social beings and if we expand our thinking, even cave art was social media.  As Solomon said, there's nothing new under the sun.  We have innovations and inventions, but the foundational activity is communication that moves us from caves to condos and beyond.

Emma Stutzman's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:03 PM

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.

Lela The Pig - Home

Lela The Pig - Home | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Joe Boutte's insight:

Lela is an acronym which stands for : Lead. Encourage. Live. Act.  While visiting Cozumel, we learned about Lela the Pig and how she helps a variety of people.  Originally created to help the people of Haiti after the earthquake, the idea has grown and Lela gets donations from vacationers in Cozumel who attend the Salsa and Salsa Cooking and Dance class.  It's a wonderful example of leadership to help those in need.  One of the current recipients of Lela is a senior home in Matzalan, Mexico.  See the website for details.

 

The cool thing about LELA is that it is easy to replicate in communities.
