Scientists create circuit board modeled on the human brain

Scientists create circuit board modeled on the human brain | Future is Orange - No its Mobile | Scoop.it
Scientists have developed faster, more energy-efficient microchips based on the human brain -- 9,000 times faster and using significantly less power than a typical PC. This offers greater possibilities for advances in robotics and a new way of understanding the brain. For instance, a chip as fast and efficient as the human brain could drive prosthetic limbs with the speed and complexity of our own actions.

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | Future is Orange - No its Mobile | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.

 

Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.

Give mobile marketing a 'push' [Infographic] | Responsys New School Marketing Blog

Give mobile marketing a 'push' [Infographic] | Responsys New School Marketing Blog | Future is Orange - No its Mobile | Scoop.it

Responsys recently commissioned a mobile marketing survey of 1,200 U.S. consumers and found that 68 percent of consumers who have downloaded apps, have enabled the push notifications. Among younger consumers (18-34 year olds), it’s nearly 80 percent. As you’ll see in the infographic below, push is a channel that marketers should not be ignoring.

 

What makes push such an interesting marketing vehicle is that while it’s primarily used today for interacting with consumers via smartphones and tablets, push can be applied to any device that’s equipped with an app. As Responsys’ SVP of Emerging Channels Michael Della Penna discussed in aprevious blog post, by 2020, there will be 75 billion devices connected to the “Internet of Things.” In this scenario, push emerges as an important technology that will enable marketers to expand the reach of their communications.

 

The catch of course is that marketers must prioritize the customer experience – and their preferences – above all else. A sure fire way to sour a customer relationship is to send an unwanted or irrelevant push notification to a highly personal device, like a smart watch. Smart marketers will get a head start on this future reality by understanding how to orchestrate push with other marketing channels and optimize the holistic customer experience.

The "Internet of things" has radically changed the way we work, think and play and everything is only an app away. Digital interaction is now 24/7

Russ Merz, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:27 PM

Study results show that 68% of app owners, use "push" notifications. However, it is unclear if that usage rate is related to "why" they downloaded the #app. The reported findings also suggest a strong #crosschannel aspect to #mobile message usage.

malek's curator insight, February 6, 2014 8:57 AM

Why Push alerts?

Push alerts will grow in importance as a channel for applications to communicate with and re-engage users.

Let me state that in theory, push notifications seem elegant, a way to prompt a mobile user at the right place, at the right time, regarding the right piece of information

Quick: when did the phenomenon that is now generically referred to as social media actually begin? Hint: Facebook definitely wasn’t the first social network. In the late 1990′s, platforms such as AOL Instant Messenger and SixDegrees.com were social. But the truth is, social media was around for decades before that. According to this graphic from Creative Rambling, social media actually began in 1969 with Compuserve and Arpanet! - See more at: http://www.sociallystacked.com/2013/07/infographic-of-the-day-the-history-of-social-media/#sthash.H6kdQQs1.dpuf
