"Managing innovation" 20% project.. their genesis is from someone get excited, and get their colleague excited

 

Just had a discussion with a friend recently about creative human resource and the way they are managed in higher education institutions; if our HEI want to spark innovations these days, we can learn a lesson or two from the corporate sector. And if we live it, we might be able to impart it to our class and students. And the snowball rolls.

The raise of wearable devices

Description

Andreas Kuswara's insight:

there are two things in this example: the wearable devices and data logging. thus now there are various sensors that not normally available, people can produce smaller more portable devices that can be wirelessly connected to form an ecosystem of devices and sensors to capture data, and analyse it either in real time or post-capture. 

 

i think we already started doing this to our cars, but not to our body yet. and maybe to our minds through learning analytics and such.
