I keep thinking of that Star Trek episode "The Game" and how the entire ship's crew became addicted to a game, and how Wesley, with a rebuilt Data, saved the day. In retrospect, that 1991 episode is even more fascinating. In our rush to embrace technology, it wouldn't hurt to spend a nanosecond or two contemplating and preparing for the possibility of unintended and unexpected consequences.

Tomasz Bienko's curator insight, January 14, 3:09 PM

Jako niebezpieczne w niedalekiej przyszłości dla człowieka i grożące uzależnieniem przewiduje się: implanty zwiększające możliwości ludzkiego ciała, możliwość odtwarzania własnej pamięci z przeszłości, "wymazywacze pamięci", sztuczną inteligencję, oraz wirtualną rzeczywistość, która chyba obecnie jest nam najbardziej bliska z wszystkich powyższych.

Revolutionary membrane can keep your heart beating perfectly forever | Future Visions And Trends! Lead The Way And Innovate. | Scoop.it

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 13, 2014 12:20 AM

They custom made it to precisely fit the shape of the rabbit's heart: First, while the rabbit was still alive, they scanned it and created a 3D model using computer aided tomography. They manufactured the model in a 3D printer, which they used as a mold to create the membrane. After that they took the heart out, applied the membrane, and kept it beating at a perfect pace.  -  According to University of Illinois' materials researcher John Rorgers, co-leader of the team who has developed this device, it's like an artificial pericardium, the natural membrane that covers the heart:

Among these prerequisites, “wireless connectivity and software (algorithms)” are the two most sought-after technologies, many M&As in 2014 have been built around those two. Expect more in 2015.  - Daniel Cooley, VP and GM for Silicon Labs' IoT MCU and Wireless Division, also sees “adding more algorithms to MCUs” as a key battleground. The gating factors for IoT aren't sensors, processing power (in terms of MIPS -- millions of instructions per second) or megabytes on MCU, he says. “It's the software algorithms” for sensor fusion. Customers want more sensor algorithms embedded in devices, he believes.

Love the fact that Enterprise CMOs are leaving 9% of the budget for skunkworks projects. Anyway, the predictions read the way of Kotler, and long overdue. This is 40+ years in the making.

Dr. Michael John Freestone's curator insight, January 2, 4:24 AM

Excerpt: "Predictions Are Always Risky…

because they won’t apply to all companies equally.  The ones you read here were put together for large and very large companies.  But as an ex-strategic planner and inveterate “data junkie”, I’d rather read them and judge for myself how they might impact my company, and whether I should build them into my planning."


In order to make your predictions less risky I recommend two sites:

1. StratPad: Try it for free http://www.mjfgroup.biz/stratpad/2 

2. Business Analysis. http://www.mjfgroup.biz/business-analysis/


Have a great 2015. Analyse and draw up clear plans and you will find ou have a calmer New Year.

Best wishes to all.Dr Michael John Freestone
