What happens when social media is read by robots - and not curated by humans

What happens when social media is read by robots - and not curated by humans | Found on the web | Scoop.it
Here in the US, the Dow recently tumbled almost 150 points in a “flash crash” caused by widespread digital panic. What was the cause of this panic? Twitter.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, April 25, 2013 8:11 PM

As Clair tweeted "a single twitter handle (AP's) is hacked and the Dow tumbles 150 points."


Why? As she explains through a combination of automated trading and lack of social media usage by the traders.


Technology is great. But I'm a firm believer that the best way to leverage it is not to let it go on auto-pilot but rather have its output curated by humans - a concept we like to call Humanrithm which we apply at Scoop.it, for instance when our discovery algorithm only makes content suggestions but lets users decide what gets published and what is not.


Did we get lucky this time? Some people probably weren't and lost something in that story. But if we don't want SF movies to become real one day, we have to start educating and empowering everyone to curate social media.

Pierre Scampini's curator insight, April 26, 2013 6:20 AM

Tous les outils quels qu'ils soient doivent être créés pour servir l'humain et non s'auto-gérer au-delà du raisonnable. Gardons cette éthique y compris dans les sytèmes de l'information et leurs processus.

Quelques questions universelles peuvent nous aider à en faire le diagnostique et s'aplliquent à tous les systèmes ou projets:

 

1- Est ce que cela tiens la mer ? Est ce relié au monde des vivants ? (Approche)

 

2- Est ce bien fait ? ( Déploiement)

 

3- la boucle PDCA est elle bouclée et enrichie ? (Evaluation)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All our tools should be created to serve humans and not to serve themselves. We must keep this ethical idea in mind for IT systems too.

Universal questions should help us. They could be used to make the diagnostic of any system or project:

 

1- Does it stay afloat ? Is it linked with living world and specially human world ? (Approach)

 

2- Is it well done ? ( Deployment)

 

3- PDCA (Prepare, Start, Control, Secure)  is complete ? (Assesment)

The invisible e-book | FutureBook | Found on the web | Scoop.it

In the US the narrative has been similar, booming sales for a few years, and followed by rapid deceleration in that growth. While we can debate the meaning of this, it is hard to argue that the growth curve has not shallowed, and done so before many thought it would.

 

There is talk of sales plateauing at around 30%, as in the UK they appear to have coalesced at around 25%. Except, I'm not really convinced by this. I agree with Sam. There is a sense that e-book sales are "booming" and yet there is no data to back this up ...
