INNOVATING: Meet The Social Entrepreneurs Completely Disrupting The World Of Philanthropy

INNOVATING: Meet The Social Entrepreneurs Completely Disrupting The World Of Philanthropy | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

The rigid silos of traditional industry and government run directly against the disruptive thinking of the solution economy. Why can’t an inventor better known for robotic limbs and souped-up scooters create a device that purifies water, as Segway inventor Dean Kamen did, and enlist a company like Coca-Cola to distribute it throughout developing countries?

The innovation is good for small and big both.  This has been covered in some other ScoopIts on this curation stream.  It's good to see a reminder about it again.  ~  Deb

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:18 AM

Breaking through the traditional ways of thinking allows entire ecosystems to develop around problems. Connected citizens share their concerns about, and interest in, a particular topic. Market demand grows. Enterprising contributors converge to meet an unfilled gap in the market and…a new ecosystem is born.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

I checked my own Google analystics today, and page after PAGE of device choices from all over the world as well as the majority of visits in the USA, were made from an Apple iPad.  More than any laptop, computer or mobile phone device.



I'll post more info next week via a Tech Tuesday blog post on REVELN.

Gartner's 2013 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies Maps Out Evolving Relationship Between Humans and Machines

Gartner's 2013 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies Maps Out Evolving Relationship Between Humans and Machines | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

The evolving relationship between humans and machines is the key theme of Gartner, Inc.'s "Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, 2013."

Gartner has chosen to feature the relationship between humans and machines due to the increased hype around smart machines, cognitive computing and the Internet of Things. Analysts believe that the relationship is being redefined through emerging technologies, narrowing the divide between humans and machines. 


Gartner's 2013 Hype Cycle Special Report provides strategists and planners with an assessment of the maturity, business benefit and future direction of more than 2,000 technologies, grouped into 98 areas. New Hype Cycles this year include content and social analytics, embedded software and systems, consumer market research, open banking, banking operations innovation, and information and communication technology (ICT) in Africa.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Critics of the hype cycle say it isn't a cycle, that it is not scientific in nature, and that it does not reflect changes over time in the speed at which technology develops. Per wikipedia writers, they recommend technology readiness level illustrations and such, as a the hype cycle does not offer views of what actions would move technology to the next phase.

That said, it's intriguing to review.  I agree where things are with voice technology.  What do you think of the places & spaces of the tech listed?   ~  Deb
