At the front door of the practice of the future: facial recognition tech | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Nashville-based ad agency Redpepper is promoting Facedeals, a product in development that would install cameras in the doorways of cafes, bars and other businesses, using facial recognition to offer customers deals personalized to their tastes.

 

[AS: Healthcare applications for this technology are numerous, but think of what it could do even before you say hello to the front desk: your entry is logged, records retrieved, name foregrounded; perhaps it's even your birthday, or 'practice registration birthday'.

 

Meanwhile, your healthcare professional is notified of your on-time arrival and can perhaps snatch a second or two to review your case notes before greeting you, getting your consult off to a flying start.]

The 100-Second Guide To Gamification In Education | Edudemic | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway

There is a solid infographic about the value of gamification.  I feel that points out a value that many articles on gamification do not.  Loss Aversion is critical.  Students don't want to lose what they earned.  If they lose a level, rewards, a score, etc. by not checking in, then they will keep returning to the water cooler of learning.  This is a powerful motivator that can be leveraged for value.

Un pas de plus vers les cyborgs - des scientifiques ont créé des tissus biologiques avec câblage intégré | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Sous sa peau humaine, Terminator de James Cameron était un cyborg entièrement blindé construit à partir d’un châssis de combat dans un super alliage, mais à en juger par les récents développements, il semble que Philip K. Dick et ses réplicants difficiles à reconnaître avait en fait raison. Au sein d’une collaboration entre Harvard, le MIT et l’l’Hôpital pour enfants de Boston, les chercheurs ont trouvé le moyen de développer des échantillons en trois dimensions de tissus artificiels qui sont très intimement intégrés avec des composants électronique à l’échelle nanométrique, au point tel qu’il est difficile de dire où finit l’un et où commence l’autre.

How to Create a Fairy Garden in a Container

How to Create a Fairy Garden in a Container | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Create a magical miniature container garden that will mesmerize the children in your life. In this make-believe landscape, a pint-sized bush is a large tree, twigs and leaves turn into furniture, and tiny woodland sprites are as close as your imagination. Arranging plants just-so can create the effect of a little forest, a mossy lawn and other scaled-down echoes of Mother Nature's grander schemes. Then start imagining the fairies that visit late at night when the world is asleep.

Big data for Smart cities – How do we go from Open Data to Big Data for Smart cities | scatol8® | Scoop.it

In many cases, Smart cities are linked to the idea of ‘data’. For instance, Open data and sensor data provide the foundation for making cities smarter by enabling new services and acting as a feedback loop for improving existing services. However, data itself does not constitute value.

Cooperation Beats Competition

Cooperation Beats Competition | scatol8® | Scoop.it

As a business owner or manager you have probably spent most of your business life battling the competition, winning some and loosing some, as you have kept your business viable and profitable.

 

Like many, you have probably found these battles to have become tougher and more frequent in recent years, as the business world continues to evolve and change, and new ways of doing business start to severely impact on the old ways.

 

This excellent and thought provoking artice, suggests that it is probably time that business owners started to evolve their business model to focus more on co-operation than constant competition, and it offers examples to show that adopting a more co-operative culture can pay dividends for your business.

Torino candidate city for IFLA Congress 2016 - Sustainability of the event

Torino candidate city for IFLA Congress 2016 - Sustainability of the event | scatol8® | Scoop.it

IFLA Congress 2016 - Sustainability of the event

Riccardo Beltramo - University of Torino - Natrisk - Department of Commodity Science

The exploration of the Landscape and its many dimensions are the core interest of the participants at the 2016 IFLA Congress. Architects, agronomists, academics and professionals who care about the culture of the landscape, instill this feeling in their daily work.

Pay attention to the landscape involves a concern for the environment, to the economy and to society ie towards the pillars of sustainability.

Sensitivity induced by IFLA 2016 may spread to the wider public and accompany him to an event open to professionals, but able to communicate universal values in the world. More and better knowledge can stimulate demand for a landscape that combines the widest audience to the insiders, in a virtuous cycle.

We, the organizing committee, we chose ELMS - the Environmental and Landscape Management System - to achieve this goal. It is an innovative management tool that combines the pragmatic approach of the European Regulation EMAS and ISO 14001 standard with the high ideals of the ELC - European Landscape Convention.Turin is known for being the place where new ideas are launched and where trials are held. It 's a place where reality and idealism magically combine. In our city ELMS was born and systems have been developed, that we will be used for IFLA 2016, to make it SMART, such as Scatol8®, an opensource remote sensing system for the detection of environmental and landscape variables. Even the Guidelines for ecofriendly mountaineering expeditions were developed in our city, through participation in the K2-2004 expedition; they are a model that has already been successfully transferred in organizing environmental and landscape trekking and lends itself to control the negative impacts of events in fragile environments.

Thanks to these methods - invented, developed and disseminated widely - we can deal with understanding the sequence of processes that involves the organization of an important event such as IFLA 2016. In particular, the ELMS will be the core of our management system: it is recorded, organized and transmitted information, used to give substance to the concept of sustainability. The management system will be developed through a path of shared information and training, which will be finalized in time, organized, coordinated and implemented by AIAPP and the University of Turin - Department of Commodity Science.. The dimensions of landscape, environment, economy and welfare become evidence on which to reflect, discuss and debate for sustainable development.

The ELMS will be tested from the planning of events, to predict and monitor its multidimensional impacts along the life cycle. The ELC leads to accentuate the size of the spread of knowledge already present in EMAS, and direct it towards the landscape, not only physical, perceptible by the senses, but also to the cultural landscape.

The Organizing Committee has made this choice of environmental and landscape policy and is committed to acting consistently in all operational decisions that generate direct and indirect impacts.

A sustainability designed and implemented, culminating in the 2016 IFLA Congress, and that will be completed as early as the organization of a series of preparatory events, over four years. Constant attention to environmental and landscape aspects related to the event, their quantification and targeted communication to various categories of stakeholders will ensure the possibility of measuring the sustainability of the event and document it through a Report. The commitment of the organizing committee is to achieve a certificate of third body on the path taken and publish a manual, full of examples for the design and execution of events with an environmental and landscape.

The principles of sustainability will be applied in daily choices with the aim of leaving an indelible trace in the minds and a mild, positive and lasting in the landscape. This is our commitment to sustainability.
