Houston tenemos un problema "CMO vs CIO": ¿Saben nuestras empresas que segun Gartner en 2017 el CMO gastará más en IT que el CIO?

Jesús Cervantes's curator insight, August 3, 8:19 PM

Traditional "fight" between Marketing and IT for the ownership of the customers' data has substantially evolved with the arrival of user-friendly, no-techy Business Intelligence tools that allow marketers to understand and take control on the main business KPIs.

In recent years, computers have learned to diagnose diseases, drive cars, write clean prose and win game shows. Advances like these have created unprecedented economic bounty but in their wake median income has stagnated and employment levels have fallen. Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee reveal the technological forces driving this reinvention of the economy and chart a path towards future prosperity. Businesses and individuals, they argue, must learn to race with machines. Drawing on years of research, Brynjolfsson and McAfee identify the best strategies and policies for doing so. A fundamentally optimistic book, The Second Machine Age will radically alter how we think about issues of technological, societal and economic progress.

The Inner History of Devices | MIT Video | Technology for all | Scoop.it

"Turkle reads snippets from her three books, which, as an ensemble, tell the story of the intellectual and emotional links between objects and ourselves. Technology, she says, serves as a Rorschach for personal, political and social concerns, carrying ideas, expressing individual differences in style.

It also "acts as a foil we use to figure out what it means to be human," crystallizing memory and identity and provoking new thought. For instance, kids have at least seven radically different styles of using Legos, she says, which allow us "to see who the child is." "For too long we have stressed that technology has affordances that constrain its use. I take it from the other side: how do different personalities, cognitive styles and desires take a technology and turn it into what that person wants to know and express."

 

About the Speaker(s): Sherry Turkle is engaged in active study of robots, digital pets, and simulated creatures, particularly those designed for children and the elderly as well as in a study of mobile cellular technologies. She is the author of Psychoanalytic Politics: Jacques Lacan and Falling For Science: Objects in Mind, appeared in Spring 2008. The third volume, The Inner History of Devices, followed in Fall 2008. Turkle is currently completing a book on robots and the human spirit based on the Initiative's 10"year research program on relational artifacts. Host(s): Office of the Provost, MIT Libraries"

Building Brains to Understand the World's Data

"The neocortex works on principles that are fundamentally different than traditional computers. In this talk I will describe recent advances in understanding the neocortex and how we are applying them to model millions of high velocity data streams.
The talk will start with a description of sparse distributed representations, which are the fundamental units of information in brains. I will then discuss how these representations are learned and how the brain processes them to build predictive models from sensory data. Numenta has built a product called Grok that emulates these capabilities of the neocortex. Grok is being used to understand high velocity machine generated data in many different domains. I will give a brief introduction to Grok and speculate on the future of machine intelligence."

4D Printing: MIT Self-Folding Strand

"In a collaboration between Stratasys’ Education, R&D departments and MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab, a new process is being developed, coined 4D Printing, which demonstrates a radical shift in rapid-prototyping. 4D Printing entails multi-material prints provided by the Connex Technology with the added capability of embedded transformation from one shape to another, directly off the print-bed. This revolutionary technique offers a streamlined path from idea to reality with full functionality built directly into the materials. Imagine robotics-like behavior without the reliance on complex electro-mechanical devices!"
