Andrew McAfee: What will future jobs look like? | Video on TED.com

Economist Andrew McAfee suggests that, yes, probably, droids will take our jobs -- or at least the kinds of jobs we know now.
Ali Godding's insight:
The machine age is here, are we ready?? Lots of opportunity for all if we can get our education and support right. Favourite quote from this talk about leader of Ford and a union waking round high tech plant. Leader jests "how u going to get robots to pay union fees?" Union leader retorts in good nature "who u going to get to buy the cars?" Our work, economy and whole world is so delicately interconnected. Lets not forget that as we move forward into this new age together. Brilliant talk to listen to whilst I do my chores! Bring on the time when my housework can be done by a robot! Freeing me up to watch more TED talks! Lol

Dalai Lama - Conquer your "self"

The Dalai Lama points out the connection between suffering and afflictive emotions, the "enemy within", and also the possibility of change. The real enemy is always within, not without.

TED: Neil Harbisson Talks About Being A Cyborg, How It Feels When Software and Brain Unite

TED: Neil Harbisson Talks About Being A Cyborg, How It Feels When Software and Brain Unite | Future Work | Scoop.it

Cyborg Foundation creator Neil Harbisson has never seen color in his life and doesn’t know what colors look like. He was born with total color blindness, a rare visual condition called achromatopsia. Until his was 21 he had lived in a grayscale world in the last eight years, instead of seeing colors, he has been able to hear colors with the help of a chip installed at the back of his head. This summer Neil gave an impressive TED speech telling about his unique cyborg life and his enhanced abilities.  Implications for future work I am sure.

Andrew McAfee: Are droids taking our jobs?

Robots and algorithms are getting good at jobs like building cars, writing articles, translating -- jobs that once required a human. So what will we humans do for work? Andrew McAfee walks through recent labor data to say: We ain't seen nothing yet. But then he steps back to look at big history, and comes up with a surprising and even thrilling view of what comes next.

Nanotechnology in Personalized Medicine

Nanotechnology in Personalized Medicine | Future Work | Scoop.it

As our ability increases to work with matter on the scale of nanometers, we are finding more and more applications for nanomaterials across a huge range of industries. The field of medicine will be amongst the most affected by the rise of nanotechnology, as it coincides with our increasing understanding of biology and medicine on the molecular scale.

Nanostructures, which are of a suitable size scale to interact directly with many biological structures and systems, are going to be a vital tool for physicians to gain better information about patient's bodies, and will allow them to work directly with the body to prevent and cure diseases.

Societal Purpose: A Journey in its Early Stages | Deloitte | Sustainable Brands

Societal Purpose: A Journey in its Early Stages | Deloitte | Sustainable Brands | Future Work | Scoop.it

The aim of this report, based on a survey and analysis by the Economist Intelligence Unit is to explore business leaders' attitudes to corporations whose purpose is defined in terms of benefit to wider society; a societal purpose.

 

It reveals that 39% of senior leaders believe that the value of a business should be measured by the positive contribution that the core business makes to society as well as by its profits.  

 

The role that social purpose has to play in employee engagement is clear in my mind. Here is a personal example of how it engenders engagement within me.

 

Grass Roots has a very strong vision of the role it plays in the social community.  Every year we host the Spirit of Tring, a live open air concert in Tring to benefit local causes.  http://www.spirit-of-tring.com/.  

 

Although global these days, our company started in Tring and employes many local residents.  The event was concieved and the first event personally funded by our CEO, David Evans who has been awarded and MBE for his services to corporate social responsibility. 

 

It provides a much loved  social event that brings the whole community together not just employees but our friends, neighbours and families.   It evokes very strong feelings of connectedness and creates memories of great times with those I love.  

 

 How many organisations can claim they can evoke such emotions? There is no 'programme' you can implement to magic those feelings, you cannot force it, it has to come from the heart.  They are felt because of the authenticity behind the purpose.

 

Employee engagement is a by-product of having a strong social purpose.  I wouldn't recommend any business to develop their social purpose with the view to improving employee engagement.  Employees can sniff it out.

 

If you implement such a purpose and do so for the end result then engaged employees is just one of the many benefits you will enjoy. 

 

 

The report was brought to my attention by a friend and fellow blogger Jon Duschinsky in his post 'Social Purpose: The Conversation Waiting to Happen' you can check it out here http://www.jonduschinsky.com/social-purpose-the-conversation-waiting-to-happen/

Quantum Computation - Michelle Simmons - TEDxSydney

There is a shift coming in the very nature of computing which is being led by the likes of quantum physicist Michelle Simmons. Michelle wants you to put the binary world of ones and zeros on the shelf for a moment, as she introduces you to the idea of computing with atoms. 

Michelle has always wanted to undertake the hardest research in the hardest subject: quantum physics. Her eccentric schooling, coupled with the sudden death of her PhD supervisor means she has spent most of her career teaching herself. Michelle is the Director of Australia's Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology. This year, she and her team announced they had made the first ever single atom transistor. They now sit on the threshold of delivering the first ever quantum computer to the world. 

TEDxSydney 2012 took place on Saturday 26 May 2012 at Carriageworks.

Gen Y retention dilemma: HR problem of the decade? - Human Capital

Gen Y retention dilemma: HR problem of the decade? - Human Capital | Future Work | Scoop.it
The generation known for being the most tech-savvy is also among the most difficult to retain. As the Baby-Boomers trickle into retirement, securing the leadership pipeline is quickly become one of the most serious HR problems of the decade.

 

The future of management is accompanied with a big question mark, according to some of Australia’s top CEOs. The simple reason is because Gen Y won’t stick around long enough to gain a holistic understanding of an organisation’s business operations.


Simply hanging on to the social-media generation is quickly becoming one of the foremost concerns for HR and senior management alike. According to the CEO Institute, this phenomenon has severe down-the-track ramifications for management succession. “Despite what CEOs perceive as reasonably high unemployment, their belief is the millennium generation [doesn’t] stay around for long; that they’re looking to expand their experiences.

 

However, this short-term commitment doesn’t allow Gen Ys to get a full, holistic understanding of any business which has down-the-track ramifications for management succession,” a spokesperson from the CEO Institute said.
