Carlos Fosca's insight:

Para quienes no conocen aún la realidad aumentada (AR) este video les puede dar una idea del enorme potencial que tiene esta herramienta tecnológica. En aquel entonces, es decir hace apenas 3 años, la interface para la realidad aumentada era la PC o el dispositivo móvil. Hoy en día se ha avanzado mucho y los lentes google o láminas colocadas en simples ventanas o visores hacen de la AR una experiencia cada vez más atractiva para el usuario.

MIT son las siglas de Massachusetts Institute of Techonology, lugar en el que nació el llamado MIT Media Lab en 1985. Este “laboratorio” es hoy uno de los centros de innovación y desarrollo más reputados de todo el mundo, con diseñadores, ingenieros, artistas y científicos que trabajan en cerca de 30 grupos de investigación llevando a cabo más de 400 proyectos que van desde la neuro-ingeniería al aprendizaje infantil o al desarrollo del coche del futuro.   Hace algo más de 3 años, el MIT Media L

Digital Ubiquity: How Connections, Sensors, and Data Are Revolutionizing Business

Digital transformation—the digitization of previously analog machine and service operations, organizational tasks, and managerial processes—is pushing both established and start-up players in many industries to compete in new ways.

Ignore Emotional Intelligence at Your Own Risk

Ignore Emotional Intelligence at Your Own Risk | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Call it Grant vs. Goleman. Two academic heavyweights face off on a topic that every student of leadership and HR cares — or at least hears — a lot about: emotional intelligence. Wharton professor Adam Grant kicks it off with a LinkedIn blog post, “Emotional Intelligence Is Overrated,” arguing that “it’s a mistake to base hiring or promotion decisions on it” and that “even in emotionally demanding work, when it comes to job performance, cognitive ability still proves more consequential than emotional intelligence.” Daniel Goleman, the psychologist credited with coining the term EI (and, full disclosure, a friend), issues his rebuttal, “Let’s Not Underrate Emotional Intelligence,” questioning the specific assessment of EI used by Grant, and referring to the various studies conducted by “The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence.” And the comments fly.

ORNL Controls Metal at the Microscale - 3D Printing Industry

ORNL Controls Metal at the Microscale - 3D Printing Industry | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
At the Materials Science & Technology 2014 conference in Pittsburgh, this week, staff scientists and metal 3D printing lead at ORNL’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, Ryan Dehoff, announced that the national lab has gained the ability to control the structure and properties of metal 3D prints at the microscopic scale.
Dehoff explains, “We can now control local material properties, which will change the future of how we engineer metallic components. This new manufacturing method takes us from reactive design to proactive design. It will help us make parts that are stronger, lighter and function better for more energy-efficient transportation and energy production applications such as cars and wind turbines.”

Welcome to the Era of Product Intelligence

Welcome to the Era of Product Intelligence | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
While the PR on Big Data suggests that it is the newest and holiest grail for strategists, marketers, product developers, and business decision-makers of all stripes, a new hybrid intelligence is emerging from the smoke and mirrors — one that may be prove to be a little more practical and actionable: Product Intelligence.

What makes Product Intelligence interesting to us as a field of focus is that it is a superb application for Big Data – providing highly targeted, real time intelligence that serves up insights INSIDE of the new product development process at the exact moment when conclusive, authoritative insight is most needed. When it’s literally make or break.

What Role Does Technology Play in Record Levels of Income Inequality?

What Role Does Technology Play in Record Levels of Income Inequality? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
As Piketty points out, it is a radical departure from how we have thought about progress. Since the 1950s, economics has been dominated by the idea—notably formulated by Simon Kuznets, a Harvard economist and Nobel laureate—that inequality diminishes as countries become more technologically developed and more people are able to take advantage of the resulting opportunities. Many of us suppose that our talents, skills, training, and acumen will allow us to prosper; it is what economists like to call “human capital.” But the belief that technological progress will lead to “the triumph of human capital over financial capital and real estate, capable managers over fat cat stockholders, and skill over nepotism” is, writes Piketty, “largely illusory.”

To say the least, it can be difficult to hold an audience’s attention, let alone get your message across when presenting. By making your presentation more interactive, you can help your audience

Successful Innovators Don’t Care About Innovating

Successful Innovators Don’t Care About Innovating | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Successful innovators care about solving interesting and important problems — innovation is merely a byproduct. If this distinction seems like hair-splitting, it isn’t. The two focuses create vastly different realities.

Focusing on innovating — as a worthy goal unto itself — tends to be born from self-centered motives: We need to protect ourselves from competitive forces. We need to ensure we have a growth engine. We need to keep up with other companies. To do all these things, we need to innovate. This is often a CYA perspective coming from an executive suite looking to protect its turf. It isn’t inherently bad. It’s just that this focus tends to create a culture where customers are on the sidelines, not in the center of the dialogue.

Apple deberá ser operador si quiere hacer negocio con su ‘SIM blanca’

Apple deberá ser operador si quiere hacer negocio con su ‘SIM blanca’ | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Las SIM en blanco no se comercializan en ningún país de la UE (salvo Reino Unido). Una de las ventajas es que permiten mudar de operador sin tener que tramitar una portabilidad y sin tener que cambiar de tarjeta, un proceso que llevan a cabo 8 millones de usuarios cada año en España.

La utilización de estas tarjetas virtuales en la UE permitiría, como dice Apple, ahorrar en los costes del roaming, los recargos que cobran las compañías a sus clientes por el uso del móvil desde un país de la Unión distinto al del usuario. Pero hay que recordar que el roaming desaparecerá completamente el 15 de diciembre de 2015, según ha acordado la Comisión Europea y ha ratificado el Parlamento Europeo.

The Innovation Challenge For Lockheed Martin

The Innovation Challenge For Lockheed Martin | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The innovation challenge for most big companies isn’t that there’s no vision to create new things, nor that employees are unable or unwilling to do it; rather, it’s that the very fabric of corporate and civil governance is inherently resistant to change. So even if Lockheed can overcome its institutional barriers and make the fusion project as transformational as it should be, its competitors will have a far easier time undercutting and slowing it. Government will, too.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Muy buen ejemplo de como la idea de simplificar un prototipo hasta que este sea atractivo para el consumidor resulta ser la pieza clave de la innovación. Como decía Steve Jobs “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
