Terry Yelmene's insight:

Many technologies offer the prospect of fundamental, disruptive  and possibly even threatening change. Some of the most broad-reaching like biotech, nanotech, internet of things are quite controversial. however, the disruptive tech getting perhaps the most scrutiny right now is artificial intelligence (AI).  Recently and predominately among academia, industry and the tech press, an   emergent and rapidly growing meme has gained prominence  stating that AI holds the prospect of superceding humans as an intelligent 'species.'  And invariably, being superceded in the context of intelligence, carries the inferred context of being superceded in 'control; and then... Houston, we have a problem!

 

This article depicts the current state of AI as an emergent technology.  As a set of data points considered in this 'threat assessment' mindset, this is fascinating stuff.   Check it out!

Terry Yelmene's insight:

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

The hidden power of ‘I don’t know': How to work through creative blocks with Beginner’s Mind

The hidden power of ‘I don’t know': How to work through creative blocks with Beginner’s Mind | Knowledge Practices | Scoop.it
Terry Yelmene's insight:

As someone who guides and improves the work outcomes of  knowledge workers, perhaps the greatest challenge of all is establishing the advantage of the novice's mind/perspective.  In the game of delivering value from mastering information and data, it's almost always best to NOT to 'know.'  This is especially true for 'what knowing.' and even more true for those who have excelled at knowing in the past.  From their history of success, everyone needs them to leverage that KNOWING, which is precisely when they shouldn't.  The 'novice perspective' is one of the true power methods that goes into world-class knowledge work.

Unlearning is also a vital process of great knowledge work.

6 ways to rethink corporate knowledge sharing

The quest to effectively share knowledge within a company is one that still appears elusive. How do you keep on top of your competitors’ developments? How do you monitor articles that mention your brand? How do you make sure your teams get the information they need to make decisions and to learn? 

While we never had more ways to disseminate intelligence and knowledge within companies, it's easy to feel overwhelmed so that we're still often perceiving a lack of communication in the corporate world.

Because content curation is a new form of communication, it makes sense to look at both external and internal communication when looking at its application within the corporate world. As the same information overload that plagues our social network and digital media is hurting our productivity too, here's how to leverage content curation for corporate knowledge sharing.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 3, 2014 1:28 PM



Gibbon is a new web app which makes it extremely easy to create beautiful-to-look-at learning playlists by simply adding specific article or video links to your custom-made content compilation. 


Gibbon actually goes the extra mile by grabbing the full content from each original source you curate, by integrating it into your learning playlist, and by stripping out of any design distractions it may have been accompanied by. 


Learning playlists can be easily edited, arranged and shared with others. 


Gibbon offers a wonderful and elegant design, providing a clutter-free, elegant and very effective way to present and organize content lists.


Furthermore Gibbon adds a few specific touches that make this curation tool particularly fit for learning a topic, by providing reading time estimates for each link in a list, striking out titles of completed readings, highlighting with simple icons the type of content showcased (articles, video, etc.), and creating a focused and distraction-free reading environment.


My comment: Gibbon looks very promising to me, as it attempts not to be another generic curation tool but addresses a very specific need and application while providing a very well designed and usable tool.


Notwithstanding the beauty and simplicity of the UI I felt the need for an integrated search tool that would facilitate me in grabbing those content items I wanted to add into a learning playlist. 


I also had several problems in trying to add new content to my test playlist. New URLs would "time out" easily while being fetched and all of the content added via the bookmarklet or the Google extension didn't show up in my collection.


A very promising tool to effectively curate content learning playlists.


Free to use.

An extremely novel and surprising potent idea that was largely forgotten is being brought back to life by this new tool; Litpen.com  

 

Back in the early 90's a number of systems sciences tools were being launched/marketed in  the wake of the publication of Peter Senge's book; The Fifth Discipline -  (tools in support of systems thinking and system dynamics).   Now, 98% of these were centered in box and arrow diagramming of standard systemic elements like stocks and flows.  However, there was one notable exception;   Anthony Hodgson's 'Hexagon Modeling' methods and mapping.  I used to use this methodology and even bought some of the physical tools myself and I can report the methods worked very well.  For years Hodgson himself offered tools and services - I believe as Icon Resources, but for whatever marketing reasons, the concept and tools never really took off.  I am delighted the Litpen folks are bringing the power of hexagon mechanics-based systems thinking back!
