Het Potentieel van het Teveel

Het Potentieel van het Teveel | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Auto's staan stil, mensen zitten werkloos thuis, kantoorpanden staan leeg, kleding gaat maar een seizoen mee en veel voedsel verdwijnt in de afvalbak. Deze gigantische overschotten en overcapaciteit schreeuwen om nuttig gebruik. Dat gebeurt nu. Alles wat over is of verspild dreigt te worden vormt steeds vaker de basis voor nieuwe verdienmodellen.

Gamification is the Future of Work: 13 Things HR must know - WiseStep | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Traditionally, the meaning of Gamification is nothing but, a usage of gaming techniques, mechanics and thinking in a non gaming context. If we go a little deep from work point of view then, in simple words Gamification is to make work fun.

Rise of the machines

Rise of the machines | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

ELON MUSK busies himself building other people’s futures. A serial entrepreneur who made his first fortune in the early days of the world wide web, he has since helped found a solar-power company to generate green electricity, an electric-car firm to liberate motorists from the internal-combustion engine, and a rocketry business—SpaceX—to pursue his desire to see a human colony on Mars within his lifetime. It makes him the sort of technologist you would expect might look on tomorrow with unbridled optimism.

Not all future technology meets with his approval, though. In a speech in October at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mr Musk described artificial intelligence (AI) as “summoning the demon”, and the creation of a rival to human intelligence as probably the biggest threat facing the world. He is not alone.

Rekindling Human Contact in the Digital Age

Rekindling Human Contact in the Digital Age | Futurewaves | Scoop.it
The emerging research about social isolation is sobering. Among people young and old in the United States and Britain, researchers are finding significant increases in loneliness. In 1985, one in 10 Americans said they had no intimate with whom to discuss important matters; in 2004, the figure was one in four.

This is not just dismaying, it’s hazardous. A recent study, examining data from 3.4 million people, found that people who were lonely, living alone, or socially isolated had a significantly higher risk of premature death. During the past 15 years, the American suicide rate has also increased markedly: for young people, it is the third leading cause of death, and nearly one in six high school students has seriously considered suicide.
