Uber’s Business Model Could Change Your Work

Uber’s Business Model Could Change Your Work | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
New technologies have the potential to divide a variety of traditional jobs into tasks that can be assigned to people just when they’re needed.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Interesante artículo que advierte sobre los cambios que se pueden venir en un sistema laboral que adopte el modelo de negocio de "Uber"  donde "el trabajo a demanda" puede  incrementar notablemente la incertidumbre de la vida laboral. Todo un cambio que hay que asimilar y sobre todo evaluar a fondo.

How Connected Cars Have Established A New Ecosystem Powered By IoT

How Connected Cars Have Established A New Ecosystem Powered By IoT | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Not long ago, after you bought a new vehicle, the manufacturer had very little contact with you for years until it was time to sell you another car. The Internet of Things is changing all that. The IoT-enabled “connected car” turns the vehicle itself into a hub for an entire ecosystem of connected services that offer consumers a wealth of benefits including enhanced safety and security, a richer user experience and a new suite of product offerings. From the manufacturer’s perspective, this also helps establish an ongoing customer relationship as well as incremental revenue streams over the life of the vehicle.

Across the world, 23 million cars on the road today are connected to the Internet, and that figure is expected to increase to 152 million. Historically, GM vehicles have been a hub for additional services, like its OnStar safety and security services. And in this past year, new vehicles in the U.S. are now equipped with 4G LTE mobile hotspots, with even more services promised in the future.

La nueva estrategia de negocios detrás del gusto por los libros

La nueva estrategia de negocios detrás del gusto por los libros | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A inicios de año, el fundador de Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, abrió el club de lectura “A year of books” en la red social. El propósito, a menos el que la mayoría conoce, consiste en sugerir un nuevo título cada quince días.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Más allá de incentivar la cultura por la lectura a través de su red social y de inducir temas y enfoques que a él le parecen interesantes a una dimensión global, lo que parece estar detrás de su "club de lectura" es un nuevo experimento de negocio masivo que puede generarle millones de ingresos adicionales al convertir a facebook en una plataforma más eficaz para la venta de libros que la propia amazon.

Silk Implants Fight Bacterial Infection Then Vanish

Silk Implants Fight Bacterial Infection Then Vanish | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A new electronic implant can fight bacterial infection inside the body and then harmlessly dissolve. The simple, passive device is made entirely of silk and magnesium, which are both benign, biocompatible materials. The device, which can be loaded with antibiotics, could be implanted inside the body during surgery and then wirelessly triggered from outside to kill bacteria using heat or by releasing drugs. Once its work is done, it would dissolve.

Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens - IEEE Spectrum

Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens - IEEE Spectrum | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The human eye is a perceptual powerhouse. It can see millions of colors, adjust easily to shifting light conditions, and transmit information to the brain at a rate exceeding that of a high-speed Internet connection.

But why stop there?

In the Terminator movies, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character sees the world with data superimposed on his visual field—virtual captions that enhance the cyborg’s scan of a scene. In stories by the science fiction author Vernor Vinge, characters rely on electronic contact lenses, rather than smartphones or brain implants, for seamless access to information that appears right before their eyes.

Skin-Based Generators Scavenge Muscle Motion to Power Wearables

Skin-Based Generators Scavenge Muscle Motion to Power Wearables | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Using human skin as one of its charge-collectors, a new flexible generator converts muscle movements into enough power for small electronics. The postage-stamp-sized device takes advantage of static electricity to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.

Such friction-powered generators could usher new types of wearable sensors that don’t require batteries but instead are powered by the wearer’s daily activities like walking, talking or holding an object.

MIT Lincoln Laboratory hosts first "Make Your Own Wearables" workshop for high-school girls

MIT Lincoln Laboratory hosts first "Make Your Own Wearables" workshop for high-school girls | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
"Close your eyes and picture an engineer," said mechanical engineer Kristen Railey '13 to the group of 50 high-school girls gathered in Lincoln Laboratory's cafeteria on Dec. 13, 2014, for an engineering workshop. "Okay, open your eyes and raise your hand if you imagined Mark Zuckerberg, a car mechanic, or characters from 'The Big Bang Theory.'" It was clear these references had struck a chord with the girls, as dozens of hands immediately flew up. "Now," she directed, "raise your hand if you imagined someone like me." Fewer than five hands shot up in the air.
