The Internet in 2025: Blazing Speeds Could Enable Futuristic Tech

The Internet in 2025: Blazing Speeds Could Enable Futuristic Tech | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
What if the Internet were 100 times faster than it is today? How would this super-high-speed connectivity affect the economy, health care and education?

The Pew Research Center, a nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C., recently posed these questions to experts in a range of Internet-related fields. Predictions about what the future Internet landscape could look like in the year 2025, with blazing-fast connectivity, ran the gamut from pragmatic to fantastical. While some experts envisioned a future in which business meetings take place via 3D hologram, another predicted the rise of immersive 3D pornography.

Marian Royal Vigil's curator insight, October 28, 5:35 PM

An interesting article on computers and learning.  I am most interested in what happens when students no longer have to deal with the "tedious" parts of a curriculum.  My sense is that eventually, not developing grit is not worth the trade off in more knowledge.

Norton Gusky's curator insight, October 29, 7:15 AM

At each leap in technology - moving from story-telling to writing - there are people who question and people who tout the benefits. Alfred Spector from Google and others look at the new opportunities with technology to personalize and use the power of the "crowd."

Seven Tips to Sustain Motivation and Keep Learners Coming Back for More! | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"If organizations want to embrace a philosophy of ongoing personal and professional improvement, then any opportunity to tap into the sources of this kind of long-lived motivation warrants consideration.

A growing body of research on the subject has identified three distinct needs that engaging gaming events meet: cognitive, emotional, and social. By drawing a direct line from these influencers to our own designs, we can reap some of the intrinsic motivational benefits of game design without sacrificing rigor or content."

In a study published in the journal Current Biology, researchers from the University of Barcelona (UB), the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany) have experimentally proved that human adult word learning exhibit activation not only of cortical language regions but also of the ventral striatum, a core region of reward processing. Results confirm that the motivation to learn is preserved throughout the lifespan, helping adults to acquire a second language.

Alzheimer’s: Google Glass As Brain Prosthetic

Alzheimer’s: Google Glass As Brain Prosthetic | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Google has done it again. This time, it’s acontact lens that can monitor glucose and save people from pricking their fingers to take blood samples. It’s amazing. But this new lens and Google’s overall suite of unbelievable products conceals a stubborn truth: Innovation is hard. And people often don’t get or appreciate an innovation at first impression. Google Glass has many of the capabilities needed to become a “memory support system.” That is, Glass could use its amazing technology to help early Alzheimer’s victims who “wanders” by providing them with cues, prompts, and reminders of where they wanted to go and of how to get there. Using Google GPS, Glass could provide specific walking directions to the grocery store. It could become a prosthetic “memory support system” bringing a new sense of independence to the cognitively impaired, encouraging them to venture out into the world.

3D Scanning and Printing Eye Prostheses | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Eye cancer is a nightmare, to say the least, for anyone diagnosed with it across the world.  According to the American Cancer Society, 2,700 new cases of eye cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States of America alone.  It has a high mortality rate, and if patients have to undergo a surgical procedure called exenteration, they can be left in need of a prosthetic eye, which can be prohibitively expensive and often is not covered by health insurance.

The 2014 Global Innovation 1000 Study from Strategy | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The success of corporate R&D is on every C-suite agenda. Yet wide disparities persist in how well innovation investments actually pay off. As a consequence, R&D is often seen as a black box, where large sums of money go in and innovative products and services only sometimes come out. One of the aims of the Global Innovation 1000 study, our annual analysis of R&D spending, has been to demystify the process—and to find universal principles that can be applied by any company, in any industry.

Free Wi-FI is Transforming Life in Africa

Free Wi-FI is Transforming Life in Africa | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
In Africa, the trend is towards providing citizens with free Wi-Fi in order to boost economic activity and education, in line with McKinsey’s projection that if internet penetration grows in the same way as that of mobile phones on the continent, it could contribute as much as 10 per cent – $300 billion – of the continent’s total GDP by 2025.

The provision of free Wi-Fi is becoming a continent-wide trend. In Kenya, the county of Nakuru is offering residents free access through a partnership between the State House Digital Team and the county government, at the reported cost of US$2 million.

One Hour of Code to Every Student

One Hour of Code to Every Student | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
It’s hard to believe, but 90% of primary and secondary schools in the US still don’t teach computer science classes. While the world is being turned upside down by an accelerating set of technological advances, even today’s elementary students seem destined to languish unless they volunteer a special interest in computers. Code.org is one of the leading nonprofits dedicated to changing this, with one of the most engaging, thoughtful sets of programming tools and games among the multitudes of programming classes available online. And fortunately, they’re trying to bring their thoughtfully designed courses to a wider audience than ever before: this time, to an audience of 100 million students worldwide.

Will we ever get our minds around the brain? We know what it’s made of (77% water, for a start) and how much it weighs (about three pounds, generally). We also know that it has somewhere in excess of 80 billion neurons, each one connected chemically and electrically with 10,000 others, creating the world’s most complex network, with more interconnections (1,000 trillion synapses, give or take) than there are stars and planets in the Milky Way.

For the first time, robotic prostheses controlled via implanted neuromuscular interfaces have become a clinical reality. A novel osseointegrated (bone-anchored) implant system gives patients new opportunities in their daily life and professional activities.

In January 2013, a Swedish arm amputee was the first person in the world to receive a prosthesis with a direct connection to bone, nerves and muscles. An article about this achievement and its long-term stability will now be published in the Science Translational Medicine journal.
