L’avenir de l’industrie est-il dans l’open source ?

L’avenir de l’industrie est-il dans l’open source ? | FabLabs & Open Design | Scoop.it
Les signaux s’accumulent. L’industrie « traditionnelle » serait de plus en plus tentée par l’open source. C’était déjà le cas dans l’électronique, avec notamment la carte Arduino. La santé et l’automobile y trouveraient aussi aujourd’hui un relais d’innovation crédible, voir incontournable. Un article de The Economist intitulé « When code can kill or cure » (dans le cahier spécial technologie du N° du 2 juin 2012) explique qu’utiliser un modèle « open source » à la conception des équipements médicaux promet d’accroître la sécurité et l’innovation.

Basés aujourd’hui sur des systèmes ultra-propriétaires, les équipements médicaux, défibrillateurs, pompes à insulines sont parfois soumis à des défaillances bien plus graves qu’un simple plantage d’ordinateur. Sans parler des tentations des hackers de prouver la vulnérabilité de ces systèmes au piratage.

Yes we're open info | NIMk

Yes we're open info | NIMk | FabLabs & Open Design | Scoop.it

Openness – as a theme, in form and as a quality – is central in 'Yes, we’re open'. What can a term like openness mean in art today, and in an internet society? Currently people regard the internet as an 'open' and free medium for the distribution of massive quantities of information, but at the same time politics and commerce meddle with it to an unbelievable degree. The internet has its boundaries, literally and figuratively, and is not infinite. On the other hand, the internet has also contributed immensely to a more or less successful effort toward achieving the transparency and openness that the public wants to see on the part of businesses and organizations. The question of copyright, which is playing a more complex and prominent role in the present era, is also related to this. How does this issue influence art and artists?

Ces nouveaux lieux qui s'approprient la culture du web | FabLabs & Open Design | Scoop.it

Entrez, c’est ouvert. Pas de papiers à montrer, encore moins de portiques de sécurité à passer : sous la grande nef du 104, tout le monde est bienvenu. Un lieu hautement symbolique donc, pour la soirée consacrée à « l’occupation de l’espace public », organisée jeudi 24 mai par la web radio Silicon Maniacs. Et c’est la première table ronde, intitulée « du centre d’art aux fablabs : l’innovation au cœur des espaces publics », qui a particulièrement retenu notre attention.
