Eli Levine's curator insight, April 2, 2014 10:07 PM

I'm not perfect, but I'd say I've done a reasonably good job at predicting these things happening.

 

You have economic pinches, combined with aspirations towards ideals, of course you're going to have Arab Springs!  Furthermore, you have governments that are not following along according to the newly expressed needs of the people, you're more likely to get unrest, violence and increase the POTENTIAL for overthrow of your whole system of governance and economics (speaking, of course, with regards to Egypt especially).  Better to improve your odds and adapt yourself to the new normal of the society's needs (which are fairly consistent throughout time, space and culture).

 

What on Earth are our current policy-makers doing by persisting with the overly-cozy relationship with the private elite and their philosophies over the actual, presented needs of the general public?  Where is their more accurate view of humanity, themselves and the various needs and functions of humanity?

 

Seriously?

And I'm the one on the outside.

 

Think about it.

Characteristics of the evolution of cooperation by the probabilistic peer-punishment based on the difference of payoff

Regarding costly punishment of two types, especially peer-punishment is considered to decrease the average payoff of all players as well as pool-punishment does, and to facilitate the antisocial punishment as a result of natural selection. To solve those problems, the author has proposed the probabilistic peer-punishment based on the difference of payoff. In the limited condition, the proposed peer-punishment has shown the positive effects on the evolution of cooperation, and increased the average payoff of all players.

Based on those findings, this study exhibits the characteristics of the evolution of cooperation by the proposed peer-punishment. Those characteristics present the significant contribution to knowledge that for the evolution of cooperation, a limited number of players should cause severe damage to defectors at the large expense of their payoff when connections between them are sparse, whereas a greater number of players should share the responsibility to punish defectors at the relatively small expense of their payoff when connections between them are dense.

The unfolding and control of network cascades

  A characteristic property of networks is their ability to propagate
influences, such as infectious diseases, behavioral changes, and failures. An
especially important class of such contagious dynamics is that of cascading
processes. These processes include, for example, cascading failures in
infrastructure systems, extinctions cascades in ecological networks, and
information cascades in social systems. In this review, we discuss recent
progress and challenges associated with the modeling, prediction, detection,
and control of cascades in networks.

Innovation is a social process - which means collaboration is key

Innovation is a social process - which means collaboration is key | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it

Let me assert one thing: innovation isn’t "technology". Innovation is people coming together to solve tough problems in new ways. That is - counter to some understandings - innovation is fundamentally a SOCIAL process, and the next evolution of innovation-driven organisations (whether they’re small businesses, enterprises, or departments within larger companies) will be defined by emphasizing soft skills like emotional intelligence and interpersonal communication as much as traditional, hard skills.

The reason why is simple: the low-hanging fruits are gone. The easy wins have been claimed. The kind of groundbreaking innovations that will create the next Uber, the next tool for repairing DNA, or framework for addressing income inequality can only come from looking at the world from several perspectives at once - engineering, finance, design, marketing, moral, legal, and so forth - and synthesizing them into something that’s greater than the sum of the parts.

The big wins of tomorrow fundamentally require world-class teams operating in perfect lockstep. They’re simply more than any of us can tackle on our own.

Empathy as a Precursor to Innovation
And once again…relationships take centre stage

The role of empathy in innovation is a constant reminder that innovation requires relationships. How can we possibly understand what someone needs if we do not know them?...

 

We need to find the soul of our data and that soul is always found in the stories of those we serve. We need to understand those we serve — the students, their families, our staff, in order to improve upon what we already do. We need to stop acting from what we think we know and listen to those we serve, to find what is truly needed. The key is empathy.

Equity and Collective Impact (SSIR) | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
In this three-part series, the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions, FSG, and PolicyLink share perspectives on the importance of embedding an explicit focus on equity throughout any collective impact effort. Articles address the need to acknowledge and more deeply examine structural inequities and the root causes of outcome disparities; provide concrete examples of how to intentionally bringing equity considerations to the forefront of collective impact efforts; and point to tools and resources practitioners may want to consider applying in pursuit of lasting and systemic social change. The series marked the launch of a formal partnership between these three organizations to shine an even brighter spotlight on equity considerations in collective impact. #EquityandCI

Economists working at the OECD were pioneers of a new approach that saw innovation not as something linear but as an ecosystem involving interactions among existing knowledge, research, and invention; potential markets; and the production process. In national innovation strategies, one of the key issues is the interactions among the different actors: companies, public research institutions, intermediary organisations, and so on. …...
