The Privacy Revolt: The Growing Demand For Privacy-as-a-Service

The Privacy Revolt: The Growing Demand For Privacy-as-a-Service | IT News | Scoop.it

THERE’S ONE THING just about every company has in common right now. Without even necessarily meaning to, they have in some way become the proprietor of a new kind of wealth. I’m referring of course to their customers’ data. But the flipside to acquiring that data is your customers now hold you to certain expectations: namely, that you’re taking steps to safeguard their privacy.

So, let me put it simply: No matter what market you’re in, no matter what service you provide or product you sell… from right now until the end of time, you’re in the privacy game. Welcome.

NLkantelt: 3 vragen én antwoorden om kantelaars te verbinden - Paul van Bree

NLkantelt: 3 vragen én antwoorden om kantelaars te verbinden - Paul van Bree | IT News | Scoop.it

Op vrijdag 20 maart vond in het Prodentfabriek in Amersfoort het Lente Kantel Festival plaats Dit festival werd georganiseerd naar aanleiding van het boek ‘Verandering van tijdperk – Nederland kantelt’, geschreven door hoogleraar transitiekunde Jan Rotmans.

Het boek beschrijft de beweging die volgens Rotmans gaande is waarbij Nederland de komende decennia transformeert naar een nieuwe samenleving, waarin de machtsverhoudingen radicaal zijn omgegooid. Duurzaamheid, bottom-up en de mens centraal zijn daarin kernwaarden. Het grote publiek leerde Rotmans kennen via het VPRO programma Tegenlicht dat op 22 februari een speciale uitzending over hem en enkele initiatieven maakte.

Het festival had tot doel om kennis, ervaring en inspiratie uit te wisselen tussen mensen die bezig zijn met deze transitie, of deze transitie willen ondersteunen.

Common non sense

Common non sense | IT News | Scoop.it

Had de bekende columnist Richard van der Lee het in zijn blog op Nieuworganiseren.nl nog over het stoppen met van tevoren aangekondigde en dus zinloze controles, blijkt dit slechts exemplarisch voor de vele volslagen nutteloze management rituelen. Dagelijkse, maandelijkse en jaarlijkse activiteiten die geen enkele, laat staan positieve, bijdrage leveren aan het bedrijfsdoel, heel veel kosten, samenwerking belemmeren en demotiverend zijn voor de manager èn zijn medewerkers.

Technology Doesn’t Just Erase Jobs—It Creates Them Too

Technology Doesn’t Just Erase Jobs—It Creates Them Too | IT News | Scoop.it

Worries about the future often share a critical flaw. They sometimes assume nothing changes, or that change happens more slowly than it does—when instead, awareness of a problem drives people to find solutions to it, reducing the risk.

Take the idea of technological unemployment.

There is growing concern and evidence that robots and artificial intelligence will replace a massive number of jobs in the not so distant future, but there is also evidence that new technologies might counteract the resulting unemployment.

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Darlene Damm. There is rapid growth of entrepreneurial cultures and ecosystems in nearly every country—mini Silicon Valleys, incubators, accelerators, universities teaching entrepreneurship. Meanwhile, different parts of the entrepreneurial process are being democratized. Crowdfunding is democratizing investment; organizations like TechShop are democratizing research, development and prototyping; and low-cost 3D printers and drones are democratizing manufacturing and distribution.

When will machines understand us?

When will machines understand us? | IT News | Scoop.it

Today, while AI models for languages and machine learning have not scaled into accurate systems, I have seen a lab producing the future. The Thinking Solutions lab in Australia has been developing a new language algorithm since 2006.

Its approach is very different to the computer model designed by Alan Turing in the 1930s and that has been scaled up since the 1950s by governments, IBM and others. Rather than that model, the Thinking Solutions language algorithm efficiently uses hierarchical patterns to meet the needs of human language and by incorporating unexploited linguistics.

Dr. Hossein Eslambolchi explores the features of a revolutionary linguistics model to see where machine understanding will come from.

How Robots & Algorithms Are Taking Over by Sue Halpern

How Robots & Algorithms Are Taking Over by Sue Halpern | IT News | Scoop.it
Banking, logistics, surgery, and medical recordkeeping are just a few of the occupations that have already been given over to machines. Manufacturing, which has long been hospitable to mechanization and automation, is becoming more so as the cost of industrial robots drops, especially in relation to the cost of human labor. Algorithms are writing most corporate reports, analyzing intelligence data for the NSA and CIA, reading mammograms, grading tests, and sniffing out plagiarism. Computers fly
