Change or Die

Change or Die | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

All leadership comes down to this: changing people's behavior. Why is that so hard? Science offers some surprising new answers...


Via Matthew Delmarter
Richard Platt's insight:

I once had one of my senior manager clients complain about the statement of "innovate or die" - the necessity of adapting because the firm's future is dependent on doing so.  Clearly he was resisting the idea of being able to make the necessary changes.  The only thing we would add is that change personally or at an organizational level is tough stuff to master, and most companies who attempt it fail miserably - we strongly suggest getting a change agent who's done it before to help you.    Please see our fellow curators comments below:


Matthew Delmarter's insight:

What if you were given this choice? How would you react?


This article offers some interesting comments on the science of behavioural change. Even when somebody's life is on the line, the numbers show that most of us will not change our habits.


So how to enforce change in somebody's behaviour? Or more importantly, change our own behaviour?


Here are some take-home comments I zoomed in on...


  • Instead of trying to motivate with the "fear of dying", inspire a new vision of the "joy of living" - convincing them they can feel better, not just live longer. That means enjoying the things that make daily life pleasurable, like making love or even taking long walks without the pain caused by their disease. "Joy is a more powerful motivator than fear".
      
  • Radical, sweeping, comprehensive changes are often easier for people than small, incremental ones.
      
  • Don't go it alone. Accept help and support - in fact, look for it. "If you look at people after coronary-artery bypass grafting two years later, 90% of them have not changed their lifestyle" - conversely when buttressed with weekly support groups with other patients, as well as attention from dieticians, psychologists, nurses, and instructors, over 77% of one group of patients did successfully change their lifestyle.
      
  • The cumulative weight of experience makes it harder to change.
      
  • People think they're leading an interesting life when they haven't learned anything in 20 or 30 years. What happens if you don't work at mental rejuvenation? People who live to 85 have a 50-50 chance of being senile. While the issue for heart patients is "change or die," the issue for everyone is "change or lose your mind."

Meanwhile, the specter of an insecure and dangerous IoT is becoming increasingly worrisome; last month, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission publicly raised concerns of security risks associated with the rising number of interconnected systems and devices, and a top U.S. news organization reported that DARPA had wirelessly hacked into a major automotive OEM’s braking system. Additionally, a recent report from tech giant HP found that many IoT end-nodes are inherently insecure, with 70 percent of evaluated devices transmitting data via unencrypted network services.

Qualcomm is increasing its focus in the entry-level and mid-tier segments by going with octa-core Snapdragon SoCs.
Richard Platt's insight:

In the mobile space, Qualcomm now has a lot of competitors. MediaTek has gained a lot of ground in markets like China and India with affordable entry-level solutions that offer LTE connectivity and eight-core CPUs, and the Snapdragon 415 is essentially Qualcomm’s answer in that segment. By offering features that were limited to the high-end segment in its mid-tier Snapdragon 6xx line, Qualcomm is highlighting its intent to consolidate its position in the mid-tier category.

AT&T Just Showed Us the Only Way We'll Get Better Internet Service | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Competition is the key to faster, better internet.
Richard Platt's insight:

The move confirms what many analysts have long said about internet service. Namely, that when it comes to giving consumers what they really care about—how well their favorite sites perform—the only sure fix is to make companies fight over your business. In Kansas City, AT&T may have been able to provide better service, but it saw no reason to make the effort until another company’s offering threatened to siphon away paying customers.

Samsung: Our smart TVs aren't eavesdropping on your conversations

Samsung: Our smart TVs aren't eavesdropping on your conversations | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Users have to deliberately press buttons to activate the voice commands features, Samsung says.
Richard Platt's insight:

Samsung counters questions about its smart TV's.  Samsung said it collects interactive voice commands only when a person makes a search request, which requires deliberately pressing a button on the remote control and speaking into the remote control’s microphone.  Samsung reminded people that they don’t have to use the interactive voice commands and can stop their data from being collected. However, disabling data collection prevents the search feature from working, essentially dumbing down a smart TV.

If people decide against using the advanced voice control features, the simple voice commands that the TV is programmed to recognize will still work.

The hefty pricing aside, the Samsung SSD 850 Pro is one of the best, if not the best, standard consumer-grade solid-state drives on the market. - Page 1
Richard Platt's insight:

If you understand that the future belongs to Solid State (Hard) Drives - SSD's for short then you can see that this particular SSD is top of the line despite the cost.  - Keep in mind manufacturing costs are something that any self respecting high tech company will drive lower to get greater MSS (market segment share), over time we can expect that this cost will go lower as Samsung will seek to lower it's cost to produce these.  

The Good: The Samsung SSD 850 Pro has the best performance, with ultra-high endurance. The drive comes with a lot of useful features, such as encryption, and RAPID mode.
The Bad: The new SSD is expensive compared with competing drives.
The Bottom Line: The hefty pricing aside, the Samsung SSD 850 Pro is one of the best, if not the best, standard consumer-grade solid-state drives on the market.

Following reports at the end of last year that Samsung's Austin manufacturing plant was working on an early batch of A9 system-on-chips (SoC) for the presumptively named Apple iPhone 7, it appears that the South Korean manufacturer will be the lead manufacturer for most, if not all, of the A9 chips for the next-generation of Tim Cook's smartphone.

One of Samsung’s key advantages in the process is its mastery of fabrication at 14nm (reports Re/Code, citing sources familiar with the matter). This allows more transistors to be packed into a smaller space, all while drawing less power.
