This article describes how politicians and business leaders are going to be thinking through the next stage of economy. Businesses will be incorporating IT into a change of business strategy. The focus is going to be on efficiency, sustainability, and circular economies.  

This kind of re-invention is fundamental to the coming technological and economic revolution.

Robert Mylne's curator insight, March 27, 2015 5:30 AM

The big players in the app taxi game have failed to convince the judge in a US court room to rule that the drivers of their app are in fact independent contractors. This means that the giants won't be as easily able to pass the buck when it comes to legal matters from drivers.

What matters with makerspaces are not the machines, but the new social relation to technology | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

You may think that, in order to free yourself from that specific way to see the world, you should free yourself from technology ; you’ll be partly right, only partly, because without any set of given technology, a human cannot perceive nor interact much with the world around him.

Feng Haoxuan's curator insight, March 23, 2015 2:20 AM

 

With the development of the artificial intelligence, will AI machine replace human work in the few decades? There will be always a issue that the machine cannot make a decisions by their own, compared with human, what kind of decisions the artificial intelligence machine make just based on the logic that human’s program in the machine. So , the doubt will continue exist and its hard to say machine will do a better work than human in the future.

 

Tom Jones's curator insight, March 26, 2015 5:04 AM

It is scary to think that in a matter of years simple everyday tasks will be taken over by intelligent machines.   Whilst reading this article, it got me thinking, in 10 or 20 years time will i need to drive a car? Will i need to walk my dogs? Will i need to prepare and make my own food?  The answer is imminently, no.   With the creation of Artificial Intelligence right around the corner we don't think of the consequences that follow.  A car that can drive itself will throw millions of bus drivers, taxi drivers, train drivers and so on, out of their jobs.   We over look the consequences of artificial by an exceeding amount and in the future it will affect us more than we realize.  

Ric Fry's curator insight, March 26, 2015 8:46 PM

The author shares some insight into the impact that A.I. developments will have on workplace automation and future job impacts. Will, as some have predicted, A.I. force large percentages of workers out of jobs in certain industries? Possibly. This article argues that not all work can be as effectively done by an A.I. as it would for be by a human. Yes, simple, repetitive tasks or work may be completely replaced by A.I. , but will it be able to navigate social, cultural, or interpersonal, or situational tasks as effectively as a human? And finally, and perhaps most importantly, should an A.I. undertake any social, cultural, situational or interpersonal without the ethical and moral capacity that humans possess?

Call for an Internet Social Forum | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

More and more, the Internet is the place where we meet up with our friends, get information, organise work, store our pictures and texts, do our banking, see videos, buy tickets and get public services. As we use the Internet extensively, we begin to be known through the Internet equally intimately. Soon, it will also hold extensive transactional information from the many “things” in our daily lives—the entire range of domestic devices as well as public and private infrastructure and services. All this knowledge is power, which can be put to good use or bad. Not only does the Internet increasingly hold too much information about us, with the advancing networked automation and remote access, it provides the power to reach anywhere to control physical spaces and activities.

Book of the Day: Anthrobscene | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Smartphones, laptops, tablets, and e-readers all at one time held the promise of a more environmentally healthy world not dependent on paper and deforestation. The result of our ubiquitous digital lives is, as we see in The Anthrobscene, actually quite the opposite: not ecological health but an environmental wasteland, where media never die. Jussi Parikka critiques corporate and human desires as a geophysical force, analyzing the material side of the earth as essential for the existence of media and introducing the notion of an alternative deep time in which media live on in the layer of toxic waste we will leave behind as our geological legacy.
